Lake Valley Camp
When participants turn nine (or complete 3rd grade), they spend their first overnight session at Lake Valley Camp in Boscobel, WI. They begin to truly build their community of peers, gain independence, exercise respect for natural world, and learn through a variety of unique activities and experiences. The day begins with the entire camp community gathered at the flagpole and ends with participants in their group cabins, each with its own identity and traditions.
Resident Camp at Lake Valley Camp is a 12 day/11 night outdoor experience for young people ages 9-18. Pioneers, Voyagers, and Teen Leadership participants will live, work, and grow together at our beautiful facility in Boscobel, WI. Campers will experience a variety of daily programs like: swimming, canoeing, horseback riding, team sports/teambuilding, archery, gardening, cooking, outdoor exploration, campouts, creative arts, performing arts, and practical life skills. Campers will also participate in key aspects of camp life, including campfires, stargazing, singing, daily reflection, strengthening friendships, and community building.
Lake Valley Camp is a purpose built facility located amidst the picturesque hills and valleys of Southwestern Wisconsin on a privately owned 650-acre property. Every summer we build our camp community with the purpose of providing a safe and transformative outdoor experience for our staff and participants that promotes independence, care for the environment, creativity, working together and making positive choices.
At residential camp, campers and staff live together in cabins that are separated into villages according to age and gender. The Pioneer Villages house campers ages 9 to 11 years old. The Voyager Villages house campers ages 12 to 14 years old. The Leadership Training (LT) Villages house campers ages 15 to 17 years old.
When families complete the registration process, campers are placed into cabin groups according to their level within the program. All cabins are assigned two staff members to live with, support, and care for each camper according to their individual and age-appropriate needs. Each village has a bath house with flushing toilets and showers.
