Doc's Run 2024 - Our Annual 4.5mi Run/Walk for Charity

Every summer, the spirit of camaraderie and charity brings together dozens of Camp Menominee campers and counselors for a tradition unlike any other: Doc’s Run. What started as one man’s journey towards better health has transformed into an annual charity run that encapsulates joy, endurance, and the spirit of giving. Named after former Camp doctor Ken “Doc” Miller, who found his path winding through the serene landscapes of the Northwoods, this 4.5-mile run down County O and County D is not just a test of physical endurance but a celebration of community and charity.


In 2023, Doc’s Run saw unprecedented participation and fundraising, with close to 140 runners raising almost $18,000 for camp charitable causes (the Nate Wasserman Camp Fund and Camp for All Kids). This event has grown beyond a simple run; it’s a celebration of health, and another example of how the camp community rallies around each other to give the gift of camp.

Doc's Run 2024 will take place on Sunday August 4!

For decades, Doc’s Run has taken place exclusively at camp with runners and walkers only being current campers and counselors…but this year we have BREAKING NEWS: you can actually join the 130+ runners/walkers at camp and for the first time participate in Doc’s Run from home! All campers, alumni, parents, friends, family…anybody who wants to can sign up for Doc’s Run. Below you’ll see links to register your son or yourself to run at camp AND a link to register to run from home. How will it work? On Sunday August 4th, while the race is happening at Menominee, you will run/walk your 4.5 miles, use your favorite running/fitness app to track it, send in a screenshot, and you will receive a special 2024 Doc’s Run shirt! More importantly, you will be able to raise money for your efforts. At home participants we will ask for a minimum $25 donation. Runners/Walkers at camp are free. There will be prizes for those who raise the most money!

Sponsor Doc's Run

Once again we will run/walk Doc’s Run to support important camp charities. This year, we have also added a sponsorship opportunity for individuals/businesses. Doc’s Run embodies the spirit of giving and inclusivity, aiming to support and empower families in need and under-served communities by helping send kids to camp each summer. By sponsoring Doc’s Run, you’re not just promoting your brand; you’re investing in the future of children and communities, making summer camp experiences accessible to many. 


Who do we support? The Nate Wasserman Camp Fund: ensuring that the spirit of our camp’s founders live on by supporting families in our community, allowing children who would otherwise not afford it to experience the joy of summer camp. Camp For All Kids: promoting racial diversity and inclusion by providing camperships to kids from under-served communities, offering them unparalleled learning and growth opportunities.
