2019 – Our 75th Summer!

The nights are getting cooler… the leaves are turning vibrant colors… and each morning, mist rises as Franklin Lake cools subject to cold September nights.  There is no doubt, autumn is in the air in the North Woods, but with the changing of the seasons comes new excitement for 2019 and a fantastic 75th Anniversary summer to come!

Camp Nicolet was founded in the Fall of 1944, when school teachers Ann and Wendall Schrader ventured to the North Woods and purchased the then-bass fishing camp from Carrie “Shorty” Fournier, who was discriminating in regard to whom the property would be sold (she wanted just the right buyers) and for what would the property be used?  When Ann and Wendall pitched the idea of turning her fishing camp into a summer camp for girls, to help young women learn and grow through experiences in the out-of-doors, Shorty whole-heartedly agreed to sell to the Schraders.

And so a dream was born.  A dream that carries into the present day and has affected thousands of young women (and some young men) who have passed through the front gates of Camp Nicolet.  We’re excited for our 75th season; recognizing our roots, embracing our traditions, and welcoming back friends and alumni while continuing to be innovative and progressive with our programming and camp culture.  Our mission today remains the same as it did in 1944 – fostering confidence, personal growth, and the development of lifetime skills for young women through participation in our Camp Nicolet activities and Northpoint Adventures programs.

Please see our Sessions & Rates page ( for 2019 information.  Also, if you’re an alum and would like to spend a few more days with Nicolet sand between your toes, please join us for the 75th Anniversary Celebration at camp at the close of the summer!  See the informational page ( for complete details.

As a camper or alumni, we hope to see you at Camp Nicolet this summer!

“Because of camp, I have been able to meet so many different people with all different backgrounds. Camp is just a magical place where girls from all over come to be girls, and I can honestly say there has not been a day at camp out of all my years that I did not feel like I had best friends who really cared for me.” – Camp Nicolet Camper
