Camp Culture

At Camp Icaghowan, we nurture character development through the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our well-trained counselors lead quality programs that are safe, fun and enriching.

Campers will:

  • Develop integrity, self-reliance and leadership skills.
  • Build friendships that could last a lifetime.
  • Enrich spirit, mind and body through challenging and fun activities.
  • Gain an appreciation for the natural environment.
  • Experience a sense of community by living with campers in small age-appropriate, single-gender groups (8–10 campers and two staff members).


Camp Icaghowan’s 120 acres are located near Amery, Wisconsin. Our grounds include a 44-acre island on Lake Wapogasset.

Camp programming

We host programming for kids and teens throughout the summer, as well as Memorial Day Family Camp and a special winter weekend camp. Programming ranges from general to specific interests, from beginner to advanced.

This assures you that camp practices have been measured against 300 national standards that go a step beyond our state's basic licensing requirements. ACA-accredited camps voluntarily go through a rigorous risk-management process to provide a supervised, positive environment with controlled boundaries where children can grow.
