Family Camp

Family camp is an opportunity for campers of all ages to enjoy the beauty of Chippewa and all that it has to offer.

Each day we provide fun programming and activities for our family campers to participate in. Campers will be able to climb the 50-foot wall, shoot down the 300-foot zip line, try a hand at our 40-foot high ropes course, waterski in beautiful Dam Lake, bounce on the blob, do crafts, ride a horse and MUCH more!

Our trained staff will be there to run the activities and to ensure the safety of our family campers. In addition to our regular activities, we will have special events such as tennis tournaments, softball games, and camp outings.

Each evening we will offer a different program — Tan and White games, a talent show, a campfire, and other exciting activities. Don’t worry, if you are looking to just relax you can always grab a book, sit on the daisy, or just enjoy some good old fashioned North Woods beauty. Our family camp is for alumni, current camper families or folks who just want to enjoy camp for a week!
