Arrival & Departure Times

Registration is between 1:30 and 4:00 p.m. Monday afternoon. Camp officially begins with scheduled activities at 4:15 p.m. We recommend that campers get here early enough to get settled and get to know their cabin-mates and counselor before heading to dinner. Camp ends after breakfast at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. Please plan to pick up your campers between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. on Saturday.

Please call our office if other arrangements need to be made.

Late Arrivals: If your arrival will be delayed past 5:30 p.m., please phone our office at 715.324.4200 to hold your reservation and give an estimated arrival time.

Activities

Activities offered during a week of camp will include field games, climbing wall, miniature golf, water slide, archery, swimming, and many more. We recommend campers bring spending money for crafts and shooting activities (teens only) as well as our Snack Shop and the Daily Grind Coffee Shop (which also serves non-coffee drinks for juniors).

Camper Mail & Phone Use

When writing a camper, please use the address below and write the camper's first and last name on the envelope as well as which camp they are attending.

Camper Name
c/o Northland Camp - Junior Camp 1 | Teen Camp 3 | etc.
W10085 Pike Plains Rd
Dunbar, WI 54119

You may also email a camper (include the camper's first and last name in the subject line as well as which camp they are attending - i.e., John Doe | Teen Camp 4) at office@northlandcamp.org. Please do not email attachments or pictures. The email will be printed and distributed during mail call. Please note that campers are unable to respond to emails they receive.

Because of the limited number of phone lines, campers are not permitted to make calls. Parents are asked not to call their children during camp except in an emergency. Cell phones must be turned in at the office upon arrival and will be returned to campers Saturday morning.

Dress Guidelines

Camp is an exciting place with lots of fun activities! Because of the schedule of camp, we stay active and fairly busy most of the day. Guys and girls can plan to wear knee-length shorts with loose-fitting, modest shirts throughout the day. Of course, pants and jeans are fine as well. Please avoid tank tops, except for use at the beach.

We try to create a different atmosphere in our evening services, so we encourage but do not require guys to wear collared shirts and long pants. Girls are encouraged but not required to wear skirts and dresses. All clothing should come to the knee.

At the Beach

Girls: Swimsuits should be modest 1-piece bathing suits. A t-shirt and knee-length shorts or a towel or cover-up should be worn while going to and from the swimming area. Guys: Exposed undergarments are not permitted. Swimsuits should be modest, trunk-type suits. We require all clothing to be modest and appropriate. Northland reserves the right to ask any camper to change his/her outfit if, in the estimation of the staff, the outfit does not comply with these standards. Please call our office if you have any questions.

Special Diets

All meals are included in the price of the camping program. Those on special diets must bring their own necessary supplements. A refrigerator, microwave, and toaster are available to store and prepare special diet foods. Food from a meal served at the Dining Hall may be set aside for a future meal.

What to Bring

Please bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towels, toiletries, flashlight, Bible, note pad, pen or pencil, and spending money for snacks and souvenirs. If you have not sent in your signed and completed medical form and waiver, please bring it with you. You may also want to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, flip-flops to wear to and from the lake, and a camera.

Do Not Bring

Food (see Special Diets), pets, cigarettes, drugs, alcoholic beverages, matches, fireworks, weapons of any kind, CD/DVD/MP3 players, cell phones, electronic games and other electronic devices, clothing promoting worldy activities, large amounts of money or valuables. We do provide a method of depositing money for safe-keeping.
