Main Camp

Main Camp

Located in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, Fort Wilderness’ Main Camp is open for year-round fun. In the summer, Main Camp hosts families for week-long family camps. During the fall, men and women gather for weekend retreats. Youth groups from churches around the Midwest gather in the winter for snowy fun. Students participating in Fort’s gap year program, TruNorth, live onsite during the school year. In addition, over 60 summer staffers and volunteers call Main Camp home while they serve. Whether you like roughing it or prefer to camp in style, our facilities provide comfort for everyone.
