Lifelong Friends. Lifelong Memories.

Over 100 years ago, the first group of campers to visit Camp Nissokone looked up at the stars. Many years later, we still look up at those same stars. A lot has changed since Camp Nissokone began in 1914, but the sky never has, and neither has our commitment to creating life-changing experiences. Here’s to 100 years of stargazing, campfires, deep conversations, s’mores, new best friends and the kind of growth that happens best where the stars shine bright – ‘far above VanEtten’s waters, with its waves of blue.’

There’s a common shared feeling from Nissokone alumni who stop by to revisit their summer memories; “I remember it like it was yesterday,” they say. We’d love to hear your camp story and to have you back at camp to visit.

Our family camps are also a great time to bring your family to camp and share the experience with loved ones.

April 28-30: Alumni & Friends Volunteer Weekend

Come back to share your story, meet up with other alumni, and pitch in to help prepare camp to be a magical setting that will set the stage for a summer full of memories, laughter and friendships for next summer’s campers.
