Tall Turf Ministries offers unique opportunities to help youth and their families make a difference in their community, as well as the Tall Turf Ministries' community.

YOUTH CAMPS (Ages 8-13)

Each Camp Tall Turf session offers youth fun, faith and fellowship in a safe and peaceful environment with opportunities for personal growth.  Campers will practice devotions designed to reflect on their experiences and their confidence in the Lord.  Each cabin, consisting of a group of 8 youth supervised by one adult, will learn to work as a community in their living quarters, in the dining hall and camp activities. 

Each day, campers will have opportunities to choose their own adventures in leadership training, sports, science, arts and adventure under the care of qualified adults.  Each activity will be facilitated to emphasize the camp theme. 


The cost for camp is dependent on the number of days per session, family size and income.  See the registration form below for more information. 

Transportation for campers is available from the TTM office (2010 Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, MI) and White Cloud. Camp is located 70 miles northwest of Grand Rapid in a town called Walkerville in Oceana County. 

Tall Turf Ministries serves around 500 youth ages 8 - 13. Tall Turf is an intentionally diverse ministry with both staff and campers coming from diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, and economic backgrounds.  While most of campers are from Kent County, campers attend from all over West Michigan, Detroit and Chicago.
