The Deerhorn Decathlon

We love Sundays at Deerhorn! We get to sleep in an extra hour and have breakfast at 9am instead of 8. There are always a lot of cheers when that is announced on Saturday night! Breakfast this morning was chocolate chip pancakes, always a crowd favorite! After breakfast, kids enjoyed some free time around camp, […]

So Much

I could tell you about how the weather was gorgeous again today, with sunny skies and mid 80s. I could tell you that Sports and Games played ultimate frisbee on the soccer field. I could tell you how cool it was to watch the littlest kids in camp learn how to bridle a horse this […]


  5:15am.   That’s the time that the first of the D session kids decided it was time to wake up this morning. đŸ˜‰ There just is no time to waste when you’re only here for ten days. This morning when the bell rang at 7:15am to wake everyone up, about 30 kids ran to […]

Ready, Set, GO!

D session is our last camper-only session of the summer. It always fills the fastest every fall, and it’s always full of lots of young kids, and also lots of first-year campers. This year we have 135 kids in D session, and 56 of them are 1st years! Plus, D session kids have waited ALL […]

C Session Goodbyes

And just like that…three weeks is over. We had a great awards breakfast this morning, where we passed out our typical end-of-session awards like Most Improved awards for each activity, and patches earned for stars. The 11 and under tennis trophy went to Alek Orrin Maldonado, and the 12 and over tennis trophy went to […]

The Last Full Day

Somehow three weeks has passed and C Session ends tomorrow. It’s always amazing to us how our longest session can fly by so quickly. This morning after blueberry pancakes and sausage for breakfast, kids had their last three periods of regular activities. After grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch it was time to pack […]

Monkey Monday

Today was Sunday in the land of Deerhorn. We flipped Sunday and Monday schedules so that our Voyagers were back to do the Monkey Relays. So we slept in an hour and had breakfast at 9. Kids enjoyed free time after breakfast. Counselors did basketball and ultimate frisbee games, but most kids were busy this […]

The Boys Are Back in Town

Banner day at Camp Deerhorn! Our 16 E session campers were up at 5:30 this morning, so excited to see their parents and tell them all about  what an awesome time they had at Deerhorn for the week.  They’re already planning to come back for 2 or 3 weeks next summer. They showed their parents […]

Dog Days of Summer

We hear it’s been a hot week across the United States. We are grateful that here in the Northwoods, we get to escape the worst of it. We had a couple of days that hit 90 and it was definitely hot. But most highs this week have been in the low 80s, with lower humidity […]


It was another idyllic day at camp. The sun was shining, the breeze blew, and the sky was blue all day. I could tell you about how it was waffles for breakfast and homemade pizza for lunch. I could tell you that Sports and Games played Klepton on the soccer field. But sometimes it’s more […]
