Our mission is to provide a safe place for youth to have fun 

while participating in outdoor activities that help campers build respect

for themselves, for one another, and for the environment.

Welcome to Camp Bovey, where young people have been creating memories and friendships for over 60 years! Located in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin on Lake Metzger, Camp Bovey’s 200 acres offer the perfect setting for campers to experience the wonders of nature in a safe and exciting environment.

At Camp Bovey, every day is a new adventure, full of intentional learning and memories. Our days are filled with educational activities, games, and of course, swimming! Campers learn about nature, outdoor living skills, working with each other and impacting their community. Our exceptionally trained staff come from area colleges and ensure that all campers make the most out of their experience. Campers leave Camp Bovey with plenty of memories and new friends, along with life skills such as cooperation, confidence, and independence. Keeping their cabin clean and helping with dishes helps youth understand how important it is to help at home.

This makes the Camp Bovey experience unique, as we operate a family-like atmosphere that fosters the healthy development and well being of our campers, while strengthening our diverse community.
