About our camp

Red Arrow camp is the summer camp that time forgot. Founded in 1920 and is located on the shores of Trout Lake in Northern Wisconsin. Eight boys and two counselors live in rustic cabins, totaling twelve in number. Built nearly a century ago, they are in excellent condition and have electricity and windows for natural light.

The camp combines decades of history with modern facilities – a soccer field, tennis and basketball courts, a riding ring, a horse stable, archery and rifle ranges, as well as canoes, kayaks, sails and various types of boats for water activities. Also important to Red Arrow is it's appreciation of the Arts with it's boys choir, camp play, and woodworking classes.

The staff plays an integral role in creating success stories for Red Arrow Camp. They are counselors, teachers and instructors – all of them serving as role models for campers. Each summer 65-75% of the staff comes back to foster leadership, dedication and discipline and be part of the Red Arrow family.

Camp programs & activities

It is during the offered classes, activities, and trips that resilience, teamwork, strong character, and appreciation for nature are born and nurtured. Boys take part in trips with their cabin mates and the two counselors. Canoe and hiking trips, lasting for 2 days and longer, provide exciting challenges and an opportunity to learn how to face & fight them. Specialties at Red Arrow are the "Salad Bowl" legendary flag football game, Camp Olympics, Aquagatta, the Carnival, the Fourth of July and more.

The best decision you’ll ever make!
I was a camp counselor from 1997-2000 and In my opinion, RAC remains one of the last great Northern WI summer camps. Quite simply this camp was one of the best decisions of my life. The history and life long friendships that follow you long after you leave RAC is priceless. From the first bell announcing the start of camp until the last award won at the closing ceremonies, your child will experience everything the Northwoods of WI has to offer. Canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, skiing, sailing, archery, sports, ropes courses, acting, woodworking, scuba diving, are just some of the activities your child can participate in. This is truly a great boys camp. “Yes I can,” is heard throughout the summers here encouraging each and every child to do their best whatever the task, weather as an individual or as a group. On Red Arrow!
