Clearwater Camp's 67 acres include a five-acre island, connected to the mainland by a picturesque footbridge, where the older campers stay. Clearwater is also surrounded by dozens of acres of conservancy lands, which feature winding trails that our campers enjoy in activities like riding. Clearwater Camp is also near state forest lands across the lake, which often serve as a campsite for our youngest campers.

CAMP FACILITIES: Since 1933, Clearwater Camp has been providing a traditional, sleepaway adventure camp for girls and young women. Many of our green-and-white painted mainland buildings or outlying brown camper cabins have stood the test of time. Clearwater's features include 20 camper cabins, a hilltop dining room, a lakeside gathering hall, an overwater boathouse with upstairs arts and craft shop, two tennis courts, a riding stable and riding ring, a campfire amphitheater, an archery ring, a tripping shed, a swimming area and separate waterski and sailing bays.

Activities include: Sailing, waterskiing, riding, tennis, arts and crafts, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, archery, campcraft and outdoor cooking, mountain biking, nature exploration, land sports, creative writing, drama, music, photography and ceramics.

In addition to our main activities, each camper has the opportunity to take a camping trip during her time at Clearwater, an important and valued aspect of the Clearwater experience. Trips range from canoeing down local rivers to hiking trips around the Porcupine Mountains and Isle Royale to kayaking trips and sailing trips in Lake Superior to even longer canoeing trips in the Boundary Waters.

Clearwater Camp customizes activity and trip schedules for each camper. Before camp begins, each camper fills out a preference sheet indicating what activities most interest them. Clearwater then bases the camper's schedule on the preferences of the camper and her parents, with the opportunity to try new activities along the way.
