STAR LAKE — A sale is pending of Houghton College’s Star Lake campus for use as a Christian camp and as a retreat and recreational center.

The transaction to a group headed by Tom Buckingham is expected to close by mid-January.

Most recently, the 40-acre property has been used as a satellite education facility specializing in environmental studies for Houghton College from 2002 to 2009.

The property has been renamed The Haven at Star Lake.

“Star Lake has created many great memories for my family since the 1930s when my great-grandmother first bought a camp on the shores of the lake,” Mr. Buckingham, executive director of The Haven at Star Lake, said in a statement. “It is our goal to use this wonderful facility in order to build memories for others, a legacy that outlasts us all.”
