Who We Are

Providing Meaningful Experiences Since 1925

YMCA Camp Pendalouan on the shores of Big Blue Lake offers a quiet, rustic setting and unparalleled service for groups from throughout Michigan and the Great Lakes region.  We are located near Muskegon, Michigan, on over 150 acres of mature oak-pine forest, adjacent to the Manistee National Forest and the White River.

Summer camps, seasonal events, weekend camps, school programs, and group retreats highlight our camping program at Pendalouan.  And our success as a four-season camp dates back to 1925. 
  
As a YMCA camp, we have access to national standards for developing character as well as host of other assets.  We maximize our resources through soliciting and acting on parent evaluations, following state guidelines, and maintaining the highest possible standards established by the American Camp Association.
