Accommodations are available to the public, including (but not limited to) IU alumni and friends. Guests participate in a variety of age-appropriate recreational and leisure activities.
Family Camp Brosius has provided outdoor adventures to families and students for nearly 100 years. Located on the shores of Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, this treasured Indiana University tradition is waiting for you!
What will you do there? You decide!
At Family Camp Brosius, you and your family create your own vacation. Adults and children have the opportunity to participate in our exceptional adult and children's programming throughout the day, and we will provide fun-filled evenings for the whole family!
Adults choose from swimming, tennis, sports and game tournaments, hiking, field trips, learning to sail, crafts, educational lectures and more. Or, if it's respite you seek, you may prefer just to read a book and enjoy the serene setting.
Young people have an opportunity to experience a traditional summer camp, make new friends and learn new skills. Meanwhile, parents are able to relax and have fun knowing their children are safe and nearby.
Children engage in daily age-appropriate programming provided by trained college students. The fun includes swimming, crafts, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, sports, talent shows and more. Teens decide their activities and daily routine as a group.
Families with watercraft may dock their boats at camp and enjoy fishing or water sports. Nearby golf courses, outlet malls and area attractions provide fun alternatives (prices not included).
Your adventure begins on a summer Sunday afternoon of your choice. Pick from eight different week-long options. Upon your arrival, counselors will direct you to your lodging and help you unload your car. That evening, you will be served your first home-cooked camp meal. After dinner, staff will present to you an entertaining overview of your vacation. Children will meet their counselors and divide into groups based on age. Afterwards, guests sing, dance, learn Elkhart Lake’s history and bond during the opening campfire.
