Why choose Lakeside Retreats?
Lakeside Retreats are breathtaking properties in New England and Michigan that operate as children’s summer camps in July and August. Recognized as some of the best facilities and programs in the industry, our camps are set in spectacular natural settings. Groups of all sizes can enjoy family-style dining, cabins with private, semi-private and group living, outdoor activities and flexible meeting/gathering spaces.
Variety of Sites
With many camps from which to choose, we can match you with the best property for your specific needs – whether it's regulation size athletic fields, teambuilding challenge courses, or meeting space. Many of our properties have highly specialized facilities that can be used for varying purposes, such as a collegiate indoor basketball arena, a gymnastics center with a 1,764-square-foot competition spring floor, or a lakeside sundeck perfect for yoga.
With Lakeside Retreats you can be close to home – we have properties within a 3-hour drive from New York, Boston, Detroit, and Chicago. Some groups who return year after year choose the same property - like a home away from home. Others love offering their members variety and trying all our different properties.
With all-inclusive pricing and packages for our rustic dining and lodging facilities, Lakeside Retreats is very affordable. Our affordability is an advantage for groups on a budget, for groups who wish to put their dollars towards special programs and activities, and for groups who have members from a wide array of financial backgrounds.
Our lodgings are simple, clean, group-oriented cabins (some private housing also available) and our food is healthy and hearty fare. We feature state-of-the-art sporting facilities and a preserved natural environment – fresh air, beautiful lake and mountain vistas, gorgeous wooded acreage, and the best outdoor facilities around – as well as our personalized service.
At Lakeside Retreats your experience is customized. Whether you need a ropes course facilitator or a lifeguard for swimming, we'll staff your event to meet your needs. We can arrange linen rentals or custom menus to satisfy all dietary needs.
Great for Kids
We are camp people so kids are our specialty. We love to organize kid-friendly activities like challenge courses, climbing walls, scavenger hunts, arts & crafts, and relay races. Cookouts and campfires are always a big hit (with the adults too!). Supervised waterfront activities such as canoeing and kayaking can also be arranged.
Lakeside Retreats are available to private groups when camps are not in session, from April to mid-June and mid-August through October. Some of our properties have winterized, year-round accommodations.
