Circle Pines Center

About Circle Pines Center

Circle Pines Center is a member-based, non-profit, 501(c)3 education and recreation center. We run a children's summer camp and year round retreat center with programs for families, children and adults. We also organize and host an annual music festival, the Buttermilk Jamboree, the third full weekend in June. The organization owns 294 acres of land with rolling hills, hardwood and pine forests, meadows and frontage on Stewart Lake. We have miles of trails for hiking and cross-country skiing, diverse wildlife and an organic garden and orchard.
The mission of Circle Pines is to teach peace, social justice, environmental stewardship and cooperation. The Center aims to demonstrate cooperative alternatives for economic and social issues and to teach cooperation as a way of life.


Volunteer Farm Work

June 2020 - August 2020 Delton, MI
β€œI appreciated the natural environment, living in the woods and working with animals, plants, and having the freedom to roam around and explore as well as maintain a social life with the others living there at that time.”

Summer Camp Counselor

June 2019 - August 2019 Delton, MI
β€œIt was amazing getting to spend time with my other co-counselors as well as the kids. They made me experience great. I met so many new friends, and learned so much about myself and my leadership skills. I really enjoyed leading an eco-day with the children because I am very passionate about environmental education.”
