Circle Pines Center teaches peace, social justice, and environmental stewardship through cooperation in work, education, and recreation.
We are a member-based, cooperatively-governed (501(c)3) non-profit. We co-create 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.).
Located between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo off the North Country National Scenic Trail, the center is nearly 300 acres in Southwest Michigan. Filled 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.
