Circle Pines Center is a member-based, non-profit, 501(c)3 education and recreation center. We run a children’s summer camp and year round retreat center with programs for families, children and adults, and have facilities which are available for rent (school, faith based and other groups, retreats, weddings, family reunions, etc). We also organize and host an annual music festival, the Buttermilk Jamboree, in June.
The mission of Circle Pines is to promote peace, social justice, environmental stewardship and cooperation. The Center aims to demonstrate cooperative alternatives for economic and social issues and to teach cooperation as a way of life.
The organization owns 294 acres of land with rolling hills, hardwood and pine forests, meadows and frontage on spring-fed Stewart Lake. We have miles of trails for hiking and cross-country skiing, diverse wildlife and an organic garden and orchard. The property sits on the dividing line between the Kalamazoo and Grand River watersheds in beautiful Barry County, near the Yankee Springs Recreation Area.
The North Country National Scenic Trail, which runs from the Vermont/New York state line to North Dakota, runs through our property.
Circle Pines Center is located in Southwest Michigan, about halfway between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo and about halfway between Chicago and Detroit.
