Welcome to Camp Bovey, where young people have been creating memories and friendships for over 60 years!
Located in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin on Lake Metzger, about 2.5-hours northeast of the Twin Cities, Camp Bovey’s 200 acres offer the perfect setting for campers to experience the wonders of nature in a safe and exciting environment.
Our Mission: to provide a safe place for youth to have fun while participating in outdoor activities that help campers build respect for themselves, for one another, and for the environment.
Our Vision: Camp Bovey sparks a lifelong connection to community, discovery, and our natural world: inclusive, accessible, and fun for all.
There is something for everyone at Camp Bovey. Our days are filled with traditional camp activities such as canoeing, fishing, singing, and large group games— plus innovative experiential outdoor living and science education.
At Camp Bovey, we ensure the highest safety standards for your child. Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), which requires that we adhere to 290 standards that measure safety aspects of camps. Campers are always supervised by camp staff, who carry walkie-talkies at all times so that they can communicate with each other in case of emergency, injury, or any other need.
