Through the Wishing Tree

~ Written and sung at Final Banquet by the 2019 Counselors In Training ~

Verse 1:   We’re making pudgy pies, on a Wednesday night

In the Outpost, sitting ’round the campfire.

Thinking ’bout winning Cookie Cup.

Making sure we keep track of our patches, so we can sew them on our jackets.

We like the sound of honking horns

When a Northpoint trip comes home.

Chorus: So if you wanna know, here it goes…

This is Nicolet, a part of us we know when we’re old,

We’ll remember everything.

‘Cause when we’re here the sun in shining down on us as we paddle and we ski.

Get around the lake as happy as can be.

75 summers full of memories.

The trees are growing

The waters flowing

Generations going

Through the Wishing Tree.


2019 CIT I cabin group.



“Thank you, thank you! My daughter had the most amazing time at Camp Nicolet this summer. She came off the bus with a big smile on her face and many memories to share with us as we drove her home. Her counselors were terrific and the nurse is great! She is more confident than ever before. She made friends that will last her a life time. She wants to go back to Nicolet next summer for 8 weeks!”

– Camp Parent/Alumna
