Brotherhood At Camp Horseshoe Summer Overnight Camp For Boys

Hail to your village! Hail to "The Shoe!"
Arm around your brother, it's the spirit of Horseshoe!

Integrity. Leadership. Fellowship. These values are the essence of everything we do. Whether our boys are canoeing the Namekagon River, racing for clues in an all-night treasure hunt, shooting hoops on Big H Court, or discovering the joys of camping in the Northwoods, at Camp Horseshoe they are learning to act with kindness, loyalty and honor. Building boys of character, boys who embody integrity in their actions and hearts, that is the Horseshoe way.

Each Boy Matters!

At Camp Horseshoe, each Horseshoe boy is cheered, included, and accepted. We honor each camper's individuality, while building a vibrant spirit of community. Horseshoe campers come from many different states, allowing lasting friendships to be forged among boys from across the country. With camper to counselor ratios of 4:1, small cabins, family style meals enjoyed at round tables, and big brother/little brother mentoring programs, we join together as a family. Here boys can be themselves—alive with laughter, infused with energy—running, laughing, living, and learning, all in the best place for boys to get the very most out of summer!

Time Honored Traditions

Entrance into the Na Ta Ne and Golden Horseshoe Honor Tribes are milestones towards which every Horseshoe camper has the opportunity to strive. These goal-oriented programs encourage campers to set goals and achieve honors through participation in all areas of camp. Catching a regulation size bass, lighting a one match fire, becoming a Master of the Waterfront—everything our boys do at Horseshoe has a purpose; each activity builds character and skills for a lifetime. On Sunday evenings all our boys gather for an incomparable Horseshoe tradition, Council Horseshoe. This magical ceremony, filled with 75 year old customs and rituals, bonds together each member of our Horseshoe community in an unrivaled brotherhood.
