Camp Bovey is a camper-focused, nature-centered residential summer camp in Wisconsin, accredited by the American Camp Association. Since 1949, our camp has provided fun, safe, residential camp sessions for youth ages 7-14.
The purpose of Camp Bovey is to provide fun and encouraging outdoor experiences that ignite curiosity, create connections, and grow confidence.
Core values that help us fulfill our purpose are Caring, Sharing, Curiosity, and Connection. We instill our core values in campers through meaningful activities, thoughtful discussions, and lots of opportunity to try new things. We want all campers to leave camp curious about everything, more confident about their ability learn, and set up with life skills that will guide them to greatness.
We hope to one day meet our vision: To spark a lifelong connection to community, discovery, and our natural world: inclusive and accessible for all. To help us reach our vision, we offer competitive sliding scale fees.
