Culver Family Camp: 2014

Family Camp dates for 2014 are TBD.

Family Camp is a one-week, all-activity camp for the whole family!

Take that long and relaxing vacation while the kids enjoy the many exciting opportunities offered by Culver Summer Schools & Camps. Relive your days as a camper or introduce your children to sailing, canoeing, or the wonders of Indian lore. This will be your last chance of the summer to relax, leave your worries at home and enjoy an amazingly beautiful wooded setting, and our 1,800-acre campus on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee.

Don't miss this opportunity to grow with your family!

HISTORY

Family Camp was established in 1968 to encourage alumni to return to their "former lives" and introduce their children to Culver's programs. It was discontinued in 1987 due to conflicts with public school starting dates.

When Specialty Camps were reduced to one week in 2008, Family Camp was re-established to again provide alumni and new families the opportunity to take advantage of the Academies' notable physical plant and enjoy the many amenities it has to offer.
