About US



Camp Kaskitowa was founded in 1939 and was originally located in Wisconsin where it served as the first Christian Service Brigade camp. In 1942, the camp was relocated to a site in northern Michigan before moving to it's current location in Allegan, Michigan in 1945. The name “Kaskitowa” was chosen in 1940 because of it's meaning, “He has accomplished the work”.

We are located in Southwest Michigan in the rural town of Allegan. We are set on about eighty acres of wooded property on the shores of Lake Shermerhorn.
