Storm Damage at Crystal Springs

Storms passing through Southwest Michigan on Feb. 28 caused significant damage at Crystal Springs Camp & Retreat Center. Though all are safe, one of our cabins (Asbury) was significantly damaged, a couple large trees came down and power was lost.

Thank you to all who have offered help with cleanup. Due to the down power lines and dangerous spots around the facility, please hold off on visiting the grounds. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Spring Improvement Day scheduled for Saturday, April 8, 9:00am-lunch. We appreciate your love, prayers and support.

Though we have policies in place that would protect our little guests during dangerous weather, we find peace in knowing that the storms came through while we weren’t hosting any groups. Keep an eye out here and our Facebook page for more information on how you can help make Crystal Springs more awesome in the future!

We anticipate expenses will exceed insurance provisions. Donations toward storm expenses are greatly appreciated!
