The Traditional Summer Camp Programs at Camp Olson are the original and most popular option for kids of all ages. These are the perfect programs for first-time campers, allowing your child the opportunity to participate in all camp activities.
Voyageur Short Week Camp: Ages 7 – 12
Perfect for first-time campers! Half week campers will enjoy 4 action packed days of camp activities. Counselors will guide campers through many of Camp Olson’s fun and exciting activities such as: sailing, horseback riding, swimming, arts & crafts, all-camp games, and a whole lot more. Note: bus transportation is available only on the arrival day of these sessions.
Pathfinders: Ages 8-9
Geared perfectly toward younger, first-time campers, Pathfinders will spend their week with their two counselors who will lead them in all daily activities. See the activities page to learn more. Counselors also accompany Pathfinder campers through evening all-camp games and evening campfire programs.
Discovery Camp: Ages 9-15
Discovery Camp offers Camp Olson’s traditional camping at it’s finest. Campers live, learn, and discover the “Spirit of the Northwoods” through new friendships, independence, and exploration of the outdoors. Campers are assigned a cabin at the beginning of the session and will live with two counselors and fellow campers similar in age. Mornings are spent with their cabin group and are structured to include all of the fine activities Camp Olson has to offer. During the afternoon, campers are given the freedom to choose their own activity. Discovery Campers will also camp out 1 night with their cabin around our beautiful Shurds Lakes. One-week sessions are available for campers ages 9-15 and two-week sessions are available for ages 11-15.
