Camp Killoqua | Light the Fire Within

Overnight Camp

General Sessions

No matter a camper’s age or program choice, our staff work with each cabin group to create the session’s activities, making each week unique. Below are the types of activities and living areas that are typical for campers. We strongly recommend coming to one of our open houses so you and your camper can see and experience camp for yourselves! All sessions offer a general, age-appropriate camp program that includes cookouts, hiking, waterfront activities, singing, and crafts.

Camp Fire also emphasizes healthful living in our programs, encouraging campers to “hold onto health” by getting active, getting healthy, and getting involved.


Each summer, campers will live with their cabin group and a counselor in an age appropriate cabin. This may not be the traditional unit for that age group or gender. We will be assigning cabins and units based on registration numbers.

While we call each group a “cabin” please note that we have many accommodations at camp, including: cabins, tents, adirondacks, pole houses, and screened in cabins. Some have bathrooms inside the structure, and many have shower houses nearby. We strive to place campers in an age appropriate level of “rustic-ness” with counselors within eyesight and earshot at all times.
