Camp Development Principles

After construction is complete, Young Life camps are financially self-sufficient. All operational expenses, maintenance, administrative costs and funded depreciation are paid from camp revenue generated by the camper fee. Only major capital projects require fundraising after the initial purchase or construction. We only grow as thoughtful and generous gifts allow.

Young Life camps have a long-standing policy to first raise the funds and then to develop new projects, facilities and amenities. This is so the camp fee that summer and school season guests pay is minimized to reflect true operating costs. This practice also allows us to develop new projects to a standard of excellence.

If you are interested in further information or to make a contribution to the development of Timber Wolf Lake please contact our camp manager at 231-839-7552.

Doctor's Quarters

As camper attendance increases, the need for fulltime medical staff grows exponentially.

With the addition of the Doctor’s Quarters, Timber Wolf Lake not only offers campers exceptional medical treatment that is above and beyond the state requirements, but also gives qualified medical professionals an opportunity to bring their families with them to experience a life changing week at camp.

Our fully dedicated Doctor’s Quarters gives Timber Wolf Lake a broader pool of physicians to draw from while freeing up a room in the Adult Guest Lodge for additional adult guests.

The Doctor’s Quarters has three bedrooms, a sitting room, laundry area and small kitchen. During the school season, it serves as additional retreat space for guests, especially those with children.
