Wisconsin Summer Camps for Boys and Girls

Wisconsin Camps

Wisconsin Summer Camps

Wisconsin is one of the most beautiful states in the country. Thousands of years ago, it was covered in glaciers. As they retreated, they left behind a network of more than 15,000 lakes, including Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. The Badger State’s unique geography means you’ll never be more than a few miles from a scenic location—it also means summer camps in Wisconsin make some of the best environments for all kinds of memorable experiences.

A Wide Variety of Wisconsin Camp Programs

Wisconsin is home to youth summer camps for every kind of kid, from the adventurous outdoor types to those more interested in academic and cultural pursuits. There are even family camps in Wisconsin where everyone can get in on the fun. If your boys or girls love horses, camps in Wisconsin’s Central Plain region are particularly good places to become better riders.

Part of helping children become independent, well-rounded people is exposing them to a range of healthy experiences. The overnight summer camps in Wisconsin provide the most chances for kids to build valuable skills, form strong friendships, and learn self-reliance, but not everyone is ready to spend a lot of time away from their parents. If it’s better for your child to come back home at night, day camps are a great way to balance new growth opportunities with time in a familiar, comfortable environment.

Clicking an entry will direct you to a camp’s individual website, where you can find out more about the program and whether or not it’s the best fit for your children. Whatever type of camp you choose, they’ll be thanking you for introducing them to such a fun, rewarding experience for years to come.
