One of the most unique aspects of Camp Nebagamon is the freedom that you have to make your own choices. Every day you get to choose what activities (we call them projects) you want to do that day. read more
As you embark on this new adventure, you may be wondering what it will be like living at camp. What will my cabin look like? Where do I shower? What is the food like? Learn more
Select from a variety of water sports, a host of land sports, climbing, target shooting, or many other options. Every morning you get to choose which activities you do that day.
Hiking, canoeing, mountain biking and more. Whether it’s two nights or two weeks, there is a trip that will fit your interests. You can hike rugged Isle Royale in Michigan, paddle the pristine waterways of the Quetico in Canada, float the scenic Brule River in Wisconsin, and more; go wherever your curiosity takes you.
Our summer schedule is packed with special events. Some of these are evening programs and some are all-day blow out events!
To keep us all on our toes, each week we pepper the regular schedule with some special programs. This photo was taken on a Cruiser Day (Wednesdays), when our Logger Village staff hosted an “App Day” bringing popular apps like Temple Run to life and into the real world of our campers.
What Our Campers Say
- Thank you for four amazing years at camp. These past few summers have been the best of my life. I know you have always said that you could take the people from camp and put them in an empty parking lot and still have it be a great camp, it was not until I finished my two week hiking Big Trip that I fully understood that. It’s the friends I have made at camp that I will remember, and I thank you for giving me that opportunity.”Matthew, camper from Tennessee
- Thanks for the past five years at camp. They have been the best of my life! Thank you so much!Bryce, camper from Pennsylvania
- Thank you so much for everything you have done this year and the six previous years. It means so much to my brother and I. It has been such a wonderful experience and all of you have done a great job. I wish I could’ve spent more time with the camp family in the North Woods. Once again, thank you so much.Jonathan, camper from St. Louis
