Camp Nicolet

Session III ’14 Highlights

Remembering all of the good times and jam-packed action filled days during Session III makes us want to begin counting the days until the first day of the 2015 camp season! ┬áThe last four weeks of camp are especially filled with traditional events such as Marathon Green/Buff Day, the all-camp tennis tournament and horse show, the entertaining staff talent show, the camper-staff water ski show, candlelight vespers, final campfire, and the big drama production of the summer…just to name a few things!

Nicolet’s camping/tripping program, Northpoint Adventures, also had a busy schedule of amazing trips. Backpacking to the Porcupine Mountains and canoeing the beautiful lakes of the Sylvania Wilderness Area introduced campers 6th grade and older to nearby wilderness opportunities. The older campers explored challenging trails and hidden treasures while backpacking the jewel of Superior – Isle Royale. The ultimate NP adventure of 2014 was the inaugural Rocky Mountain backpacking trip with trip leaders, Jeremy Starz and Katie Singleton.

A summer at Nicolet is an amazing opportunity for campers to gain competence, courage and independence; make new friends; have memorable adventures; and most of all have a carefree summer of fun!
