Camp Nicolet


Imagine the feeling of gliding across Franklin Lake at the helm of a sailboat or in your very own kayak!

Camp Nicolet’s Smallcraft program gives you the opportunity to learn all about canoeing, kayaking, stand-up-paddling, sailing, and windsurfing.  Take a paddling adventure to Tiger’s Tail and discover this giant sandbar at the other end of the lake.  Participate in a sailing regatta and hone your competitive sailing skills!

Camp’s fleet consists of 2 Hobie Wave catamarans, 3 LaserPerformance “Bug” sailboats, and one Hobie 14 catamaran.

Stand-up-paddling, or SUP, is very popular!  Jump on one of our 6 SUP boards, grab a paddle, and whisk your way along the beautiful shoreline.

For a real adventure, try your hand at one of camp’s 4 Hi-Fly windsurfer rigs, with sails varying in size from small (easy to lift) to large, for the more experienced and for higher performance.
