Site & Facilities

Located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula just three miles north of the Wisconsin border, Covenant Point is 140 miles northwest of Green Bay, and 340 miles north of Chicago.  Adjacent to thousands of acres of Ottawa National Forest, Covenant Point is close enough to make a weekend trip worthwhile, and far enough to be a truly set-apart wilderness experience.

The mainland area is a thirteen acre peninsula on beautiful Hagerman Lake – a spring-fed, 585 acre lake that we enjoy year-round. Our “Back 40” wilderness area is largely undeveloped, but is home to our high and low ropes courses, a tree house, two yurts (which both sleep 8), and our Nature Center. Our eight-acre Island sits one mile from our mainland shore, (yes, it’s truly an island), and serves as a truly unique wilderness setting for youth camps.

Dining Hall

2009DiningHallOur dining hall can hold up to 140 people at once, comfortably. Food is a priority at Covenant Point, so we take extreme care in preparing home-cooked meals for our guests.

 

 

 

 

Tabernacle

2009TabernacleThe tab is our main gathering space, it seats up to 250, and allows us to play games, hear meaningful messages, and worship God through song all under the same roof. Having a space that encompasses these three activities helps us fulfill our core value of Stillness and Silliness in a significant way.

 

 

 

Chapel

The chapel is a smaller gathering space, seeting around 100 people comfortably.

Nature Center

The Nature Center offers a nice meeting space for up to 30 people, plus an attached 3-season outdoor pavilion. There are fireplaces in both the main meeting area and outdoor pavilion. 2 bedrooms, both of which sleep 8 and 2 full bathrooms. The two back 40 yurts are nearby for additional sleeping space.

Back 40 yurts

 
Two yurts, tucked into the woods, sleep 8 each on bunkbeds. Both are equipped with woodstoves for cool nights. Bathroom needs are served by a nearby two-room outhouse and the nearby Nature Center bathrooms (with showers).

Lindstrom’s Landing

Offering a beautiful view of the south end of Hagerman Lake, Lindstrom’s Landing is a meeting space that offers room for 30. The basement serves as our “trips room” where we house backpack and canoe trip gear.

Infirmary

The infirmary includes a 2 bedroom apartment (one with a full bed, and one with 2 twins), two additional separate bunkrooms (each with 2 bunk beds and a shared bathroom), and our summer health office and another multipurpose meeting/office space in the basement.
