Family Camp Brosius provides activities for children, adults and the whole family!
Each week, our children's programming begins Monday morning at 9am, with the raising of the flag. Children are engaged in structured group activities from 9-11:30am and from 1-4pm, breaking only for lunch. During this time, adults have their own time to do what they please, which could include participating in our adult programming or simply relaxing by the lake.
In between and after scheduled programming, families can enjoy all that camp has to offer. We have planned special evening programs for you and your family each night at Family Camp Brosius.
Engaging programs are age-appropriate and facilitated by college students. Each group is facilitated by counselors whose job becomes helping your kids to have a memorable adventure!
While at Family Camp Brosius, your children will have the chance to establish life-long friendships and strengthen family ties. Self-esteem, confidence and communication skills are nurtured in a safe environment that encourages children to try new things and meet new people. Lastly, a love for the outdoors and physical activity are fostered, putting children on their way to life-long wellness.
Your child(ren) will be placed into one of the following groups, according to his/her age.
Infant care is provided during the day by college students as part of the camp registration fees. Care is indoors and air conditioned. Naps are encouraged. Parents should bring diapers, changes of clothes, special foods, blankets, bottles, pacifiers and other comfort and care items just as you would provide to a regular child-care provider.
