Camp Deerhorn

is set within 100 acres of woodlands carved out of the Wisconsin wilderness and rests on the bank of North Pelican lake.

Boys live in small rustic log cabins called koogees with three to eight other boys and a counselor. Meals are served family style in the dining area of our lodge and activities are taught with an emphasis on fun and improvement. We consider our activities to be lifetime sports that each boy can continue to enjoy throughout his life.


Improvement in social skills are also an integral part of Camp Deerhorn. Making friends and working with counselors and peers toward common goals allows each boy to grow as an individual.

  • Deerhorn is a medium-sized camp
  • Ages accepted are from 7 to 16
  • Many different session lengths available
  • Father/Son camps

In recent summers, boys came to Deerhorn from over 30 U.S. states as well as Austria, Costa Rica, England, France, Germany, Mexico, Morocco, Republic of Singapore, and Spain.

Deer Tracks

In my life, there are just a handful of people and places and experiences that are truly responsible for the person I am today, and you, your family, and Deerhorn are right there at the top. To be given the opportunity to share that this past June with my son was a memory and a whole new experience to add to the heap that was so powerful.  It brings me such happiness when I’m with you guys at camp. It’s always so real and true and pure and right for all the right reasons. Watching my son make his first connections with you guys … his little shy smiles and short conversations … it warmed my heart to the core.
