Where nature & learning meet
(and other cool things happen!)
Camp McGregor is 85-acres of nature with woods, meadows and animals in their natural habitat on the shores of Crispell Lake. The Jackson County ISD has owned and operated the Camp since 1985. The Camp serves each division of the JCISD and all Jackson County schools. The camp is also available for private rental and is an ideal spot for family reunions, weddings, graduation parties and group outings. The camp is rented by reservation and the affordable rate is part of the service the JCISD provides so that the facilities will serve the entire community. For more rental information, call the Camp office at 517-529-0002.
The camp is home to the JCISD's Math & Science Center and an observatory with our most recent addition -- one of the most modern computer-driven telescopes you'll find in the state. The high-tech science facilities at Camp McGregor demonstrate our commitment to the success of all students by offering educational programs to our local school districts.
The camp also hosts a special education camp each summer for Lyle Torrant students, illustrating our commitment to providing diverse opportunities and experiences for each student. Camp McYack is another JCISD special education program held at the camp each June.

Stars are "a blast!"
Astronomy Camp was "a blast" for students who attended. "I never thought stars where that important until I went to camp. I was really scared because I didnt know a lot about astronomy the only thing I really knew about was the zodiac signs. ... What I learned that each and every star has a story to tell."
