Camp Icaghowan has small cabin groups of 8-10 campers and 2 staff. Campers sleep in rustic cabins on Lake Wapogasset. After enjoying enriching outdoor activities, cabins provide a space for reflection before going to sleep each night.
Icaghowan (eye-KAH-goh-wahn) is of Lakota origin, meaning "To Grow in Every Way." YMCA Camp Icaghowan nurtures character development in campers to grow in self-confidence, self-reliance and leadership skills that will last a lifetime. We have been helping boys and girls learn and discover the excitement of overnight camping for over 100 years.
At YMCA Camp Icaghowan, campers try new skills, develop teamwork and leadership skills, and discover a sense of adventure in a resident camp setting on a beautiful 44-acre island in Lake Wapogasset near Amery, WI.
Days are action-packed and filled with memorable camp experiences focused on traditional camp favorites including archery, swimming, climbing, canoeing, campfires and more. A highlight of each week is sleeping or playing in one of Icaghowan’s tree houses.
Campers can choose from our unique specialty camps such as Horse Camp, Skateboarding, Teen Extreme, Two-Week Camp, River Canoe Trips, or Leadership Training Programs.
Programs and activities at Camp Icaghowan seek to instill the four core values of the Y: Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. Three-day, one- or two-week sessions are perfect for the new or experienced camper.
Our commitment to nurturing the potential of children and teens, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility come alive at YMCA camps.
