Family Camp

A Tradition

Family Camp is an end-of-summer tradition at Camp Nicolet for over three decades! Families come together and enjoy meals in the Dining Hall, a wide range of “help yourself” activities including soccer, sand volleyball, tennis, sailing, swimming, kayaking, stand-up-paddling, and even Water Skiing rides in the Ski Area!  There is a Family Camp campfire, a talent show, and countless hours of enjoying the company of others while watching the sunset over Franklin Lake.

Please Note – 2020 Registration and Check-in Policy:

1. There is a $300 non-refundable deposit to hold your cabin. Current families have priority for their same cabin for one month after registration opens. If camp hasn’t received a deposit from your family within 30 days of registration opening, then the cabin will become available to other families.  Currently there is a small wait-list of new families hoping to attend in 2020.

2. Deposits are accepted via USPS with the paper registration form, or we accept credit cards via PayPal.  Updated 2020 PayPal instructions are below.

3. Cabin changes are permitted after we’ve heard from present families within the 30-day “priority window,” and we evaluate availability.  Please contact us directly if you are interested in changing your cabin.

4. Upon arriving at camp, we will ask that you check in at the office and pay for your stay in full prior to going to your cabin and unpacking. By doing this, the financial aspect will be out of the way for the time you are with us. You will also know the final number of people in your group at that time.

5.  If you anticipate having guests join you for meals who are not staying on the camp property, please pay for these meals in advance.  Pricing is noted below.

Once a deposit is paid, you will receive an e-mail reminder during the summer asking for confirmation of number of people in your family planning to attend, so we may place food orders accordingly.
