Windsurfing Camp

Camp Facilities

Panther Pond is three miles long and one mile wide. It is shallow so it warms up easily in the summer. The wind is perfect for beginner and intermediate windsurfers. The waters are patrolled by loons, ducks, beavers, and bald eagles.

We have a fleet of windsurfing boards and sails that allow surfers of all shapes and sizes to excel. Campers will also experience the joy of sailing in a Vanguard 15 and our Hobie 16 Catamaran.

When campers drift too far away, they will be quickly picked up by our motor boat or jetski and brought back to the beach by our lifeguard certified waterfront staff.

Lake

The lake has good breezes usually blowing into the camp shore, making it easy for campers to return. Our beach faces a smaller section of the lake with gentler winds perfect for beginners, while the winds around the corner get pretty strong for more advanced campers. The clear water is over 80 degrees Fahrenheit in the middle of the summer.


Waterfront

Open swim is never dull with a water trampoline, floating toys, water basketball, and numerous docks.


Cabins

Most cabins feature built-in pine wood bunks with storage shelves built in between each set of beds.


Servery

Our buffet style serving line always features a vegetarian option on top of a well balanced meal and friendly servers.

Beach

The natural beach is flat, wide, fifty meters long, and composed of fine golden sand that makes it a great site for swimming, beach volleyball, D-Day invasion, and sand castle building. The beach is bordered by great shade trees under which there are beach chairs that provide a beautiful setting for reading.

Woods

The forest trail system is used for tennis ball fights, guerilla warfare, nature hikes, and capture the flag. Trails traverse the peninsula and follow the shore of the lake providing spectacular views.

Dining Hall

The dining area is the oldest building at camp. It sits on the water's edge, and the reflections of sunlight dance on the ceiling at breakfast each morning.

Carlson Colosseum

The Colosseum is a huge indoor space ideal for volleyball, floor hockey, indoor soccer, baseketball, small dodgeball games, and our weekly trivia night. It is also our storm shelter in case of high wind or thunderstorms.

Our campfire area is located right next to the lake. It seats over 150 people on large log-style benches. Our dance floor is the site of many competitions, performances, and dances.

Most of our bunks are built of white pine along the edges of the cabins to give campers proximity to the windows.
