Our staff are caring adults who interview with both the Camp Director and the Youth Program Director at East Side. All must be at least 18 years old and successfully pass a criminal background check in order to work with our campers.  Many are college students who have grown up at Camp Bovey and are now entering a career such as teaching or outdoor recreation. Our pre-camp training covers everything from behavior management and program management to outdoor cooking and camp songs! Additionally, all staff are CPR and First Aid-certified, and many are certified lifeguards. 



At Camp Bovey, we ensure the highest quality and safety standards for your child. Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA) and is inspected every year by the Wisconsin Department of Health and the local fire department and every three years by the USDA. We must pass and maintain their guidelines in order to be licensed. 

Camp Bovey goes through a careful review of items such as hiring policies, emergency procedures, staff training, program plans, and site and food safety. In addition, all camp staff go through a week-long training that includes CPR and first aid certifications. Many staff are also certified life guards.


There is something for everyone at Camp Bovey. Each day, campers have opportunities for swimming, sports, art and nature education, boating, fishing, archery, singing, environmental education, performing arts, visual arts, team building, hiking, large group games, and making new friends. Swimming lessons are provided for beginning swimmers by a Water Safety Instructor (WSI).
