Pretty Lake Camp

Since 1916, Pretty Lake Camp, a nonprofit community organization, has provided a cost-free summer camp experience to over 50,000 at-risk youth from Kalamazoo County. Throughout the years, they have enriched the lives of thousands of youth by offering a safe, structured and encouraging environment in a natural setting.

Through the financial support of generous individuals and organizations to the “Pretty Amazing” campaign, the camp staff  provide everything that campers need during their session at camp–clothes, toiletries, bedding, towels, food, transportation to and from camp, and activities–at no cost to the camper or their family. Their focus is to assist in the development of campers by teaching life skills and helping campers cope with life’s challenges.
