The Voyage has Begun

Our Voyager crew left this morning at 7am with 14 kids and 4 leaders.  They were excited to finally be able to set off on the expedition they have been working toward for three weeks, and looking forward to for months.   It was pouring rain when they woke up this morning, but that didn’t stop […]


It was a warm, beautiful day at Deerhorn, packed full of fun and excitement.  Since the Lake Superior Trip was still gone, we slept in an hour this morning and had breakfast at 9am. (pancake wrapped sausages on a stick that looked deceptively like corn dogs for breakfast)   Since we slept late, we only […]

So Much Fun

Things are a little different around here for the next two days. The Lake Superior Trip left this morning after breakfast, with 35 kids gone for today and tomorrow. There had to be some changes in the schedule because of massive flooding that occurred in northern Wisconsin a week ago. (Not us! WAY northern Wisconsin) Usually the […]

Deerhorn Smiles

After blueberry scones for breakfast, kids spent the morning in regular activities. Sports & Games played baseball, and the lake was perfectly calm for skiing. Before lunch, we announced the teams for C session, and kids were super excited for that news.         After chicken pot pie for lunch, this afternoon was […]

No More Clouds

We woke this morning to a pretty grey sky,  with strong possibilities of afternoon thunderstorms. However, by early afternoon, the clouds had cleared and the sun shone the rest of the day.  It actually turned into quite a beautiful day! This morning’s breakfast was french toast, and afterwards kids headed back to their koogees to […]

Let’s Go, C Session!

Saturday morning means cinnamon toast for breakfast at Camp Deerhorn. After breakfast, campers returned to their koogees to clean up and get ready for the day. They were split into temporary activity groups by age, groups just for today.  As campers arrived by car, they joined in the fun, doing activities like sprout ball, archery, and […]


B Session ended today and we had our awards breakfast (waffles with strawberries) this morning. Lots of awards were given out, including patches for stars earned in activities, and Most Improved patches in each activity as well. The ping pong tournament champion was Michael Thistlethwaite, and Sharpshooter awards for high scores in riflery went to […]


It’s the last full day of B session and today has been just as busy as the days before. After bagels for breakfast, kids had the last three periods of activities this morning. After chili for lunch, and the longest No-Name Lost and Found Parade ever, kids headed back to their koogees to pack up […]

Tom Foolery

It was another great day of meals at Deerhorn, with pancakes for breakfast, Italian subs for lunch (another crowd favorite), and chicken and biscuits for dinner (with chocolate cupcakes for dessert).  The weather couldn’t have been better either, although skiing would have liked a little less wind! We finally managed to get all of the […]

Ping Pong & Pizza Bagels

Tonight at dinner I heard from more than one camper, “This is the best day of meals ever!” We had doughnuts for breakfast, pizza bagels for lunch, and tortellini for dinner (with rice krispy treats for dessert). You can always tell when it’s pizza bagels for lunch, because the dining room is SO quiet!   […]
