Camp is truly a life-changing experience – one that provides a lifetime of memories and develops real life skills needed to be a leader in today’s changing world. A summer at camp helps kids feel more self-confident, gives them a chance to develop a hands-on appreciation for the environment and the natural world, and provides the opportunity to develop authentic friendships and a sense of community.
Because Nicolet is now more global, our campers also become more aware of the world around them. This goes hand in hand with Nicolet’s traditional motto “Learning to Live Together”. Recent studies have shown that a summer camp experience helps reduce summer learning loss because it is a form of very positive experiential education. Last but not least, camp is still an “unplugged” environment where kids learn to communicate face to face, breathe fresh air, have fun and are self-propelled. You can help further the mission by making a donation to the Camp Nicolet Foundation.
