Variety Makes Camp Life Fun!

Each week, campers and staff look forward to an all-camp, high-energy theme day called Specialty Day. The theme, activities and meals for the entire day are planned by campers. A few of our favorite themes from the past are Wild West, Pirates, Circus, Knights of the Round Table and the annual Fourth of July Celebration.

Each week on Adventure Day, you venture out of camp and visit nearby attractions like the headwaters of the Mississippi River, a turn of the century logging camp, or one of Minnesota’s many beautiful beaches.

Twice a week in place of an activity period, each cabin group participates in a Tribal. You and your cabin mates get to choose your tribal activity. There are endless opportunities for fun and adventure! Some favorites are: making homemade ice cream, tubing behind the ski boat, or having fun on the waterfront.

Every night after dinner, the day’s excitement continues with an Evening Program. Either as a village (age group) or as an entire camp our evenings are packed with fun. Each week we have a campfire with s’mores. Other nights of the week, we play dodgeball, capture the flag, relay races with varying twists or lip syncs. Sometimes, we even dress staff up as our favorite super hero or dog and have a show. Evening programs are always different and guaranteed to end in laughter, high fives and memory making moments.
