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.

I can’t let another day pass, without taking a moment to thank each of you for the fabulous camp experience our son had the last two weeks.  He returned home raving (and talking non-stop) about every activity, all the food and all the campers and the entire staff.    His only complaint — that he was picked up from camp two to three weeks too early! I’m not sure how you did it, but my normally skeptical child has been finding the sunshine in everyone, and quoting the Deerhorn Creed around the house.     It is music to my ears to hear my 11 year old talk about not being a “knocker!”   It has been wonderful to have him come home more responsible, more confident, and as happy & excited as I have ever seen him.
