Camp Charlevoix was originally purchased by the Charlevoix Girl Scout Council in the 1950s for the cost of $1.00 from a local Girl Scout benefactor. At that time, the property was virtually undeveloped except for a small house on the property that has since been demolished.
The building first started out as an office for the popular campground Charlevoix Auto Camp on the Lake from about 1920 to 1953. Around that time the property was to become the site of the Charlevoix Area Hospital and the building was moved to the airport where it served as a waiting room. In the early 1970s it was donated and relocated to its present site as the Troop House. The community considers it a treasured reminder of the early history of vacationing in the Charlevoix area.
Local sponsors, Crooked Tree Girl Scout Council, and volunteers have worked together over the past 50 years in developing the camp into the property it is today.
This 28-acre camp located outside Charlevoix is a beautiful natural setting that includes Stover Creek and surrounding wetlands. A large grassy area provides ample space for games and group activities, as well as for pitching several tents.
