Father Son 4 Ready for More!

Our final session of the summer of 2023 kicked off today with beautiful sunshine and blue skies. Dads and sons arrived throughout the day, with kids running to activities as soon as their car pulled in. We had activities running from 9am-11:30am and 1:30pm until 4:30pm. Dads and sons water-skied, canoed, kayaked, shot bows and […]

Fishing, Friends, and Fun

The third day of Father Son 3 dawned just as beautiful as the two before it! We are SO grateful for the amazing weather we’ve had this week. Today is our guided fishing day, so dads and sons had a great time heading out with our guides for an hour throughout the day. Some even […]

Fathers and Sons and So Much Fun

Day 2 of Father Son 3 was another picture perfect Northwoods summer day. Highs in the 80s, sun shining, blue skies, and lake of glass this morning for skiing. Breakfast this morning was waffles and sausage, and lunch was buffalo chicken wraps and watermelon. By the afternoon, the waterfront was hopping again as dads and […]

Hooray for FS3!

We love Father Son 3 and 4 at the end of the summer. We aren’t gearing up for a summer of action, and we can more fully enjoy hanging out with some amazing dads and sons. It’s a great group of returning families and families brand new to Deerhorn. We say you can arrive to […]

The Last Goodbyes

It’s the saddest day of the summer. Today ends the last regular camper session for the summer of 2023. Some staff will stay on for our two Father Son sessions, but many of our staff left today, along with the Leaders, and 135 other campers. If ever there was a testament to how deep love […]

Second to Last

Here we are…the last full day of D session and the second to last day of all of our camper-only sessions for the summer of 2023.  Summers at Deerhorn remind me of those early days of having a baby…the days and nights can be so long, and you’re so tired…but suddenly, you blink, and they’re […]

Keepin’ It Cool

Whew! It’s a hot one today at Camp Deerhorn! The temperature is in the high 80s, but it’s also really humid, which is not a typical Northwoods summer day. When the heat and humidity get this high, it’s time for some of the activities to head to the waterfront. Basketball, tennis, and horseback riding all […]

A Boyhood Adventure

They say that Disneyland is the Happiest Place on Earth…but we think it’s Camp Deerhorn. Where else can you celebrate Skatie’s 10th birthday, get crafty, sail, play tennis, bike trails through the woods, shoot hoops and bows and arrows, ride horses, play disc golf, and kayak…all before dinner? The session is flying by and time […]

D is for Deerhorn Brothers

We did brother pictures after breakfast this morning, and it made us realize how many brothers are here right now enjoying Deerhorn together! Not only are there lots of Deerhorn brothers here, but there are also lots of sets of THREE brothers here together. It’s so great to see! I was on staff at Deerhorn […]

D Session Koogee Fun

Koogee pictures are some of our favorites to take. Kids love hanging out with their friends in their koogee and it’s fun to get to see personalities come out in photos. Whether serious or silly, the koogee pics are always a highlight. You can also notice the koogees that shop together in the store! 😉 […]
