This camp is set on a gorgeous, clear lake in Minocqua, Wisconsin, and has been open since 1933. Upgrades have been made over the years and the camp is very well kept, but it’s special for what has not changed. After every meal, the girls sing songs that have been written by campers over the years, and every Sunday night, the girls spend time listening to poems and writings on certain themes, then have dinner al fresco on the tennis court. At Council Fire, campers wear historic voyageur hats and share stories about trips taken, called “trip sparks.” Clearwater is truly a safe haven for girls to discover themselves, while learning every skill from archery and sailing to canoeing and horseback riding. For ages 8 to 16; half or full summer, or a two-week introductory session.
