Welcome to Camp Beechpoint!
It was a day full of firsts this past friday at the Golf Marathon. We had our first walker, Debbie Schanz, for the Walkathon. We had our first female golfer, Kelly Godwin. And we had our first Hole-In-One winner. Jason Baliko made a hole in one on the 12th hole, his 118 yd shot won him two round trip airline tickets. Some other notables were, Dave Tubergan, who was the grand prize winner for sponsorships raised, winner of the “friendly” Premier team sponsorship Challenge, as well as golfing the most holes with 144. Our oldest golfer scored the lowest with only 36 strokes over par, and Todd Lee won a chance at winning $2500 with a 50 ft putt. It was a great day of golfing, and it brought in about $30,000 for camper scholarships. Thanks to all who were involved.
It certainly was a happy day at Camp Beechpoint this past weekend as we had our 50’s themed Auction. The festivites began at 4:30 with a dinner of burgers and floats, a classic car show, a live oldies band, and the silent auction portion of the night. At 6:30 the live auction began, and some of the top items up for bid were homemade furniture, homemade baked goods, and a South African Safari. There was also a cabin sponsorship portion of the Auction where people would pledge to support a full cabin with of scholarships. It was a fun night and we were able to raise $47,000 for camper scholarships, and additional $20,000+ for camp development, bringing the total amount raised at the Auction to just over $70,000. We are truly blessed by all of our generous donors, and everyone who came out for the event

We would like to give a HUGE Thank You to our volunteers who have helped us get ready for the coming camp season. To Dave and Melissa Tubergan and Rebecca Brummel for redecorating and revamping ‘Skyview’, our new retreat house. To the work group from Emmaus Road Bible Church, who assembled bunk beds, and worked on the new bathrooms in the Inn. To the service team from the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission, who put the canvas lids on our temporary summer cabins, and built a new gaga pit, among other things. And but certainly not least, Thank You to Ron Overbeek for building new beds for Skyview and for the Inn. We are truly blessed by all of our volunteers who give their time so generously.
Spring is almost here, and for golfers that means it is about time to hit the links and go golfing. Beechpoint’s Golf Marathon is a perfect opportunity for golfers who want to spend a day golfing 100 holes, while supporting a great cause. This is the 4th annual Beechpoint Golf Marathon, and it will be held on May 17th at the Lynx Golf Course in Allegan, MI. This year we have added an afternoon Walkathon for people who want to get out and support Camp Beechpoint, but don’t necessarily want to golf. The walkers will be walking 10,000 steps (about 5 miles, as an individual or a team) and will join the golfers for an evening banquet. This will be a fun filled day full of golfing, walking, prize giveaways, and a Hole-in-one Contest for $10,000. Every year Beechpoint gives away close to $180,000 in scholarships to low income families, and this year our goal for the Golf Marathon and Walkathon is to raise $40,000 for camper scholarships! You can help by participating as a golfer or walker, or by supporting another participant. For more information click on the links below.
