“I love to create an environment that will bring out the best in young people. At camp there are so many exciting opportunities to learn and grow. It's a great chance to see kids succeed at something brand new..”

- Blake de Jong, Camp O'Malley Director


Mission: To enhance the character of our youth through recreation, education, and positive community experiences in partnership with the Grand Rapids Police Department.

Vision: To provide a world-class Camp experience that offers young people access to new activities, skills, and ways of learning in a unique environment that will also support the development of successful students, responsible citizens and healthy individuals.

At Camp O’Malley, our goals are to encourage campers to try new things, meet new people, learn social skills, make healthy choices, become good stewards of the environment, have fun, work as a team, become physically active, and eat more fruits and vegetables.
