        Spring camp at Camp Icaghowan is the most popular event of the year.  This special and amazing weekend on the island provides you and your kids with a lifetime of treasured memories.

        For those of you who have never been to Camp I., here are some additional details:

        • Camp Icaghowan is a YMCA camp situated on a 44 acre island on Lake Wapogasset near Amery, WI (about an hour away).  The island is connected by a narrow isthmus, so you can drive to it, and is great for kids to be able to run off and explore on their own.
        • The event starts Friday evening and runs through Sunday morning.
        • Lodging consists of a variety of cabins (some with gas fireplaces and others heated only by wood burning fireplaces) and a lodge with various rooms.
        • Events keep you busy for a fair portion of the weekend, but there is plenty of time for father-kid exploration of the island
        • Events include, blindfolded rowboat races (Dad's Regatta), turtle races, scavenger hunts, field games, looking for trinkets, campfire songs, skits, candy scramble, climbing wall, archery/slingshots/hatchet throwing, the "Magic Fire", and more.
        • Kids build or strengthen friendships and dads get to know dads from their bands and others a lot better as well.
        Additional Details: 
        • As usual, camp is scheduled over Mother’s Day weekend (Friday May 8 – Sunday May 10).
        • Arrive between 4:00 and 6:00 on Friday the 11th (Dinner served at 7:00 but you’ll need time to check in and get your bunks set up).
        • Check-Out on Sunday at 11:00 so you can get home and spend some time with all the moms that helped make this weekend possible.
        • Cost is $60 per kid and $120 per adult – why is there a difference between kids and adults?  We don’t know. Ask the YMCA. Registration deadline = April 28th. 
        • Early-bird pricing is $55 per kid and $100 per adult. Early-bird pricing expires April 12th.
        • Registration fees include all costs for Camp I, including Magic Fire donation, t-shirt for each adult & child, and meals. 
        • All payments must be made online! No registration or payments will be allowed at Camp I.
