Family Camp

A Tradition

Family Camp is an end-of-the-summer tradition at Camp Nicolet. Families come together and enjoy great food in the dining hall, a wide range of “help yourself” activities including soccer, sand volleyball, tennis, sailing, swimming, kayaking, stand-up-paddling, and much more. There is even a Family Camp campfire, a talent show, and countless hours of enjoying the company of others while watching the sunset over Franklin Lake.

Because of our 75th Anniversary Alumni Reunion in August of 2019, Family Camp will begin later than usual. We know this effects some of you with school-aged children and hope that you will keep us in mind for 2020 when the dates return to the normal schedule.

We have a different registration and check-in policy beginning with the 2019 season:

1. There is a $300 non-refundable deposit to hold your cabin. Current families have priority for their same cabin for one month after registration opens. If camp hasn’t received a deposit from your family within 30 days of registration opening, then the cabin will become available to other families.  Currently there is a small wait-list of new families hoping to attend in 2019.

2. Deposits are accepted via USPS with the paper registration form, or we accept credit cards via PayPal.  PayPal instructions are below.

3. Cabin changes are permitted once we’ve heard from all of our present families, and we evaluate availability.  Please contact us directly if you are interested in changing your cabin.

4. Upon arriving at camp, we will ask that you check in at the office and pay for your stay in full prior to going to your cabin and unpacking. By doing this, the financial aspect will be out of the way for the time you are with us. You will also know the final number of people in your group at that time.

Reminders will be sent prior to next August and we’ll be asking for more accurate numbers so we can place food orders accordingly.

“Camp Nicolet is a tremendous gift, not just for our daughter, but for our whole family. It’s always nice to remind our daughter that her favorite time of year is the one month she doesn’t have a phone in her hands. Camp is a huge part of who our daughter is – for that we are thankful.” – Camp Parent
