Staff:

The Camp Bovey team includes 15 qualified and trained staff: Camp Director, Operations Coordinator, Environmental Education Director, Program Coordinator, Outdoor Living Skills Instructor, Water Front Director and Assistant, Head Cook, Kitchen Assistant, Camp Nurse, Maintenance Assistant, and six Cabin Counselors.

We also have Counselors in Training (CITs) and Junior Staff who work alongside the Cabin Counselors. CITs/Jr Staff are often former campers who return in a leadership role to share their love of camp with younger campers. 

Safety:

At Camp Bovey, we ensure the highest safety standards for your child. Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), which requires that we adhere to 290 standards that measure safety aspects of camps.


Campers are always supervised by camp staff, who carry walkie-talkies at all times so that they can communicate with each other in case of emergency, injury, or any other need.


All camp activities are led by trained instructors. Staff hold certifications to teach swimming, archery tomahawk throwing, and fire starting lessons. Each staff member is trained in Basic Water Rescue sot hat they can assist the Waterfront Director and Asisstant while campers are in the water. All water activities, including fishing, canoeing, kayaking, boating, and swimming require the presence of a lifeguard.


Activities:

There is something for everyone at Camp Bovey. Each day, campers have opportunities for swimming, sports, art and nature education, boating, fishing, archery, singing, environmental education, performing arts, visual arts, team building, hiking, large group games, and making new friends. Swimming lessons are provided for beginning swimmers by a Water Safety Instructor (WSI).


Camper Mail:

Everyone loves to get mail at camp! You can write letters to your camper ahead of time and give them to camp staff at drop-off to be passed out throughout the week. You may also send mail to us during the week at 11770 East Townline Road, Gordon, WI 54838. However, since mail takes a while to reach camp, we occasionally do not receive your letters until after your camper's session is over.

Additionally, emails can be sent to campbovey@esns.org throughout the week, and the Camp Director will print them and give them to your camper. Please note that the Camp Director is spending most of their time enjoying the program with your camper and may only check email once or twice each day.

We do not allow campers to receive phone calls or call home unless in case of an emergency or illness. If a camper is very homesick or having a problem at camp, we do make exceptions to this rule. If you need to reach camp staff or your camper during their session, please call the main camp line at 715-378-2914.
