As most of you already know, the Stay Home, Stay Safe order has been extended until May 28. Sadly, this means we will not be able to have overnight guests until then, including Memorial Day weekend.


If you have a reservation between now and May 28, please click here to let us know how to best proceed with your cancellation:


Thank you for your patience, as we work to cancel or transfer a large number of reservations with a limited number of staff!

Our lifeguarding class, originally scheduled to begin May 28, has been cancelled.

April 30, 2020

We’ve had a lot of inquiries about when we will be reopening for guests, and the short answer is, “As soon as it’s safe to do so.”

Many of you may have read that state parks are planning to open in June, but Somerset Beach is a privately owned campground. The executive order (set to expire on May 15th) prevents us from renting campsites and cabins before then, but we plan to re-open for camping as soon as it is safe to do so. This may be as early as May 16, but we understand that there may be further delays or restrictions necessary for public safety.

We will continue to post updates here, on our Facebook page and through email. Please know that if you make a reservation for a time when camping is still prohibited, we will refund all fees paid.


APRIL 13, 2020

Our Prime Time Work Retreat originally scheduled for May has been cancelled. We hope to be able to reschedule it for June.

April 6, 2020

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we have made changes to our summer schedule.

Senior Teen Camp has been moved to June 28 – July 2. All registrations for Senior Teen Camp have been moved to that week. We understand that this may conflict with your summer plans, and if you need to cancel, please reach out and we can help you with that.

This means that our Explorer Camp 1 and Young Teen Camp 1 will be canceled. We will move all Explorer or Young Teen registrations for that week to July 19 - 23, 2020. If you would rather move to July 26 - 30, 2020 instead, or if you need to cancel, please email or call us at 517-688-3783.

Also, we've extended the early bird discount deadline to June 1.

We are hoping these will be the only changes necessary to our summer schedule, but we know that this situation is ongoing and may need to be re-evaluated as time passes. Thank you for your patience!

In light of the recent "stay at home" order, camp staff will be working remotely for the time period mandated by our governor. We will still be available via phone (517-688-3783) and email (info@somersetbeach.org).

In addition, our lodges and camping areas are now closed to overnight guests, including lease lots. Our trails, roads and outdoor areas are still available for individual exercise (excluding the playground equipment).

We continue to be in prayer for all of our camp family during these difficult days.

March 17, 2020

Our campers and guests have been on our minds over the last few days as we all try to navigate the changes caused by COVID-19.


There's so much uncertainty about what the next few weeks and months will look like, but we are committed to loving all of you the best that we can, even if right now it can only be by praying for you, that you will remain healthy and hopeful.


Please know that you can continue to register for camp and make reservations without worry or hesitation. If circumstances prevent us from holding camps or allowing camping, we will certainly refund payments.


In this time of social distancing, feel free to come and walk our grounds or hike our trails. We have plenty of space to roam, keeping a safe distance from others while drawing closer to our Creator.
