We are so lucky at camp to be able to enjoy our great camp grounds. We are surrounded by woods for boys to explore. On Sundays the boys go with their cabin to their campsites to cook their Sunday evening meal over the campfire. We fully encourage the boys to take advantage of the woods. What boy doesn’t like to make a campsite? What boy doesn’t like to get back to nature and get dirty? Who wouldn’t enjoy seeing the sun stream through the leaves as the tress provide some welcome shade on a summer’s afternoon?
Our goal is for every camper to go on an overnight trip while they are at camp. The trips get progressively more involved as the boys get older. We take the boys on hikes to local waterfalls, camp-outs, and canoe trips where the boys will build their own tents and cook their own meals. The oldest boys get an amazing white water rafting trip! In addition, Menominee is one of the best Wisconsin lake camps as we sit on the shores of one of the 5 amazing lakes on the Sugar Camp Chain. Our boys can experience fun and challenging canoe/kayaking trips right from our shores.
During free activity periods during the day, the younger boys, especially, love to don their sweatpants and set off into the woods. They might have a campsite down ‘OCR’ (Old Counselors Road), or they might prefer to locate on the lakefront. Wherever they go – and there are lots of places to go – they are sure to have fun!
