Campers are placed in cabins based on gender, age, and grade level. We will do our best to fulfill cabinmate requests. To guarantee a request, campers must list each other, be of similar age, and attend the same camp. Our registration software requires the selection of male or female in order to place campers into cabin assignments. However, we know that our community of campers includes gender identities that do not fall into these categories. On the camper information form we invite campers to share their gender-identity & pronouns. If you have questions or additional information feel free to contact us.
Our Waterfront Director and lifeguard staff will conduct a swim evaluation to check your camper’s swimming ability. Based on the swim test your camper will be given a wristband indicating their skill and designating where they are allowed on the waterfront. Campers have the opportunity to retest throughout the week during any open swim.
Photographs and Video
We take many pictures of our campers enjoying their time at camp. These photos are used in our weekly video and in promotional pieces. Feel free to share any of your photos with us!
Keeping in Touch with your Camper
Campers love mail! Encourage family and friends to send letters with positive messages assuring all is well. A long running camp tradition is that campers are thrown in the lake if they receive 5 letters. As it takes a couple days for mail to arrive, some parents send letters prior to the start of a session. If you do so, there is no need to list the cabin name. At check-in there will be a drop-off area for mail and packages for your convenience. Due to allergies, please do not include items with nuts. Mail and packages can be sent to:
ATTN: Camper’s Name – Cabin Name
27960 137th Street
New Auburn, WI 54757
Pre-addressed/stamped postcards to make it easier for younger campers to write home. If your camper has a problem, illness, or urgent message, the camp staff will call you. Should you have a message for your camper, please contact us and we will pass it on. If your camper wants to contact you, we will determine a plan of action based on the situation and what is best for your camper’s needs to ensure a successful time at camp. Please have campers leave cell phones at home to allow them to experience independence and a technology-free time.
We will accept cancellations at any time prior to the start of a session for any reason, such as an illness, unplanned change to schedule, or significant anxiety. Should campers desire to withdraw their attendance, we will refund your balance minus the non-refundable deposit. *Due to the many unpredictable challenges families are facing this year, we are able to refund deposits upon request in 2021.* Please inform us as soon as possible regarding any cancellations so we can open up your spot for another camper to attend. Should we choose to cancel a session prior to the start, we will offer a full refund. You can cancel online or email email@example.com.
If your camper would like to change sessions please contact us. Changes will be made based on availability.
