BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: A summer tradition since 1935, Camp Pepin offers day camps, overnight camps, and specialty camps. With a large waterfront, a backwoods area featuring a target range and multiple high-ropes elements, and a variety of skill classes and all-camp activities, campers have opportunities to try new skills and challenge themselves in new ways. Plus, small, tight-knit cabin groups allow campers to develop friendships that can last long past their time at camp.

CAMP LOCATION: We are located on Lake Pepin with 200 feet of shorefront and have an extensive 40-acre backwoods area. Our 10 cabins all face a large field between the lake and the woods. Camp Pepin is accessible from the world-renowned Wisconsin Great River Road, and we are less than 2 hours away from many large cities - including Minneapolis, St. Paul and Rochester.

CAMP FACILITIES: We have 10 cabins (4 of these have attached bathrooms), a dining hall, bathhouse, rec hall, both a field and beach amphitheater for meetings and campfires, a 40-acre backwoods area filled with activities, and a 200-foot beach on Lake Pepin for all kinds of fun on the water.

their comfort zones and trying new things.
• Provides enriching activities and programs taught by passionate and educated instructors.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Leaders-in-Training, ages 13-15
• 2-week session from July 24 - August 5
The LIT program is a two-week session designed for teens who are still looking to attend camp, while also developing valuable leadership skills useful for the road ahead. As a group, LITs work through our challenge courses, assist counselors with instruction, and grow as leaders in a community – both at camp and in the “real world.” Our leadership programs focus on effective communication and collaboration, while also defining what it means to be a leader.

Counselors-in-Training, ages 15-17
• 2-week session from July 10-22
At the end of this two-week session, CIT campers will leave feeling confident in their leadership, mentorship, and teaching skills, and will be prepared to serve in this role both at camp, and in their communities. During the first week, CIT campers will gain insight into all aspects of a counselor’s job at camp. Mirroring camp’s own staff training, CITs will participate in a series of activities that address such topics as basic child development and behavior management, counseling techniques and best practices, communication and leadership, environmental stewardship, and community service. The second week of the CIT program acts as an internship, where CITs are placed with cabin groups where they shadow staff, and experience what it takes to be a summer camp counselor.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Camp Pepin has a variety of ways for your children and your family to reap the benefits of a camp experience. We offer families the choice of participating in a pre-camp payment plan that allows you to make smaller payments that fit your budget, as well as sibling and multiple session discounts. YMCA members also receive reduced tuition on camps, and the YMCA offers scholarships to those who qualify.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Camp Pepin is excited to introduce a new program designed to provide the summer camp experience for the whole family! During our Family Camp on Demand sessions, families can rent out individual cabins that will be assigned exclusively to their group. Access to the waterfront is available for guests, under their own supervision. If you’re looking for even more to do, guests can choose from a variety of camp activities to sign up for in order to create their own itinerary – all taught and supervised by Camp staff. Besides meals and activities, the rest of your family’s stay at camp is on your own time! Families can choose to opt into a meal plan while staying at camp, or prepare their own meals.
