Time Flies

We woke to a cool morning with blue skies and sunshine, and it quickly warmed to an amazingly gorgeous day. Today was our guided fishing day, so dads and sons had a great time fishing with our professional guides, hunting for that elusive musky, the fish of 10,o00 casts. There weren’t any muskies landed today, […]

The Sun Came Out

This morning dawned cool and overcast. We didn’t have any rain, so activities went on uninterrupted…but it was definitely a cool, cloudy morning. Once lunchtime arrived, however, the sun came out, the skies cleared, and it was a gorgeous, warm, blue sky afternoon. Dads and sons enjoyed a full day of activities, everything from sailing […]

Father Son Fun in the Sun

We really love these last two Father Son camps. Our summer is mostly over and we can truly enjoy four days spent with dads and sons, rather than ramping up for a full summer as we do in June. As per usual, it’s a great mix of new families and returning ones. Some have kids […]

The 2022 Water Campfire

Apologies for no blog yesterday. The last full day of this session was crazy busy, wrapping up the session and preparing for the Water Campfire last night. Yesterday was a great final full day of D session. Kids had regular activities in the morning, then spent rest hour packing up. The afternoon entailed three afternoons […]


Well, we finally did it. We finally wore out the D session kids. It took a full week, but this morning was the first day that I filled the gatorade machine alone at 7am, and there were no kids on the tennis courts or playing basketball. They were finally tired enough that they slept until […]

Brothers at Deerhorn

I always take brother pictures each session. But this session when I announced that I was taking brother pictures after breakfast, I couldn’t believe how many kids showed up. I guess I hadn’t looked at a list to realize how many brothers there are at Deerhorn together for D session. I counted 26 sets of […]

A Beauty of a Day

Northwoods weather is funny. Last night and this morning, there was no rain in the forecast until 8:00 tonight. Then suddenly around 3:30 this afternoon it got dark and cloudy and started raining. Even the weather app showed no rain on the radar. Luckily it didn’t last long and kids still got to play Braveheart […]

Everything is Magic

Another hallmark of D session is their excitement about everything. Everything is magic at Camp Deerhorn. There are dogs running around all day at camp that you can play with anytime you want? Magic. The camp store is full of awesome gear and you have money you get to spend? Magic. There’s a different candy […]

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 […]
