Another Great Sunday

We really love Sundays at Camp Deerhorn. The other six days of the week are much more scheduled, with much less free time. Sundays allow a little flexibility and a little free choice. But the most popular part of Sundays is the fact that we wake up an hour later! Sunday mornings there are games […]

Our Spike Bucks

Our Voyagers left yesterday, off on their grand adventure. While they are gone, we bring in 10 kids who are 7-10 years old and coming to camp for the first time. We call this session our E session, or “Spike Bucks.” They arrived today with their parents, some nervous, but all excited. We love introducing […]

Another Adventure

Our Voyagers were up bright and early this morning to head off on their kayaking adventure. They were greeted at the bus by a ton of friends, there to wish them bon voyage. It’s pretty awesome to see how many kids show up to see them off. They are heading to the Apostle Islands National […]

Back to Normal

With the return of the Lake Superior trip, it’s back to the regular routine around here. Kids are back to working for stars in activities, and enjoying the water activities on yet another warm day at Deerhorn. Sports and Games is playing Star Wars on the soccer field, which is a game made up by […]

Carnival Fun

Since the Lake Superior trip was out of camp today, we decided to treat ourselves to sleeping in an extra hour. The cheers in the dining room at dinner last night with the announcement were loud! After breakfast sandwiches for breakfast, kids had two periods of activities with the same temporary groups as yesterday. This […]

Lake Superior and Fun at Camp

They ate breakfast at Paul Bunyan’s in Minocqua, and then headed north to Bayfield. They set up camp at the Apostle Island Campground, and then boarded […]

A Busy Week Ahead

This week marks the halfway point in the summer, and it’s also one of the busiest…which, at camp, is saying a lot! Our Voyagers leave Friday, so there is all kinds of prep going on for that. The Lake Superior Trip leaves tomorrow and will return on Wednesday. And the weather has decided to throw […]

Pugawaggan 2019

Sundays are a little different at Camp Deerhorn. We are always excited to get to sleep in an extra hour and have breakfast at 9. (french toast and ham) After breakfast today, teams met for team meetings to prepare for this afternoon’s big Sunday event. Spencer Ellerbusch gave the Words of Wisdom in the lodge […]

C Session Teams

After some rain yesterday afternoon and evening, we woke to sunny skies once again. We had breakfast sandwiches on croissants and tater tots for breakfast, and then kids were off to clean their koogees and head to activities. Sports and Games played a game called Balco Ball on DK Field, which is like baseball with […]

Our Boys are Home!

Other than a brief rain shower this afternoon, today was another beautiful day for activities. After pancakes and sausage for breakfast, half of the kids who were here for B session headed to the big waterpark in Wausau for the day. Back at camp, everyone else had the first six activities of the session. Kids […]
