Remember the sound of a keylog bouncing off of a stone and into a hot Friday night campfire, the smell of the red pines on that long walk to the stables, the sight of an orange moon hovering over the lake casting a trail of light through the darkness, the call of a loon at sunrise?
Tucked away in the beautiful North Woods of Wisconsin, Chippewa sits, flooded with heartwarming memories and a constant hum of energy and spirit. That same energy and spirit still resonates through these woods over half a century later…long after Chippewa campers built their first campfire. And just as the cabin lights go out and the owl sings it’s final tune, you return for one last visit, for one last long walk, for one last hug, for one last memory. Welcome back to camp.
Thanks for taking a moment to revisit your old stomping ground. We feel very strongly about staying in touch with all of you, and keeping in tune with the great history of Chippewa Ranch Camp. Please take some time to look at a few photos, converse on our alumni message board, and update our database with any new info that you might have available.
In our efforts toward restoring Chippewa’s history, we are looking for any fragments of camp treasure, however small they may be. If you have some photos, an old logo tee shirt, a song, a tan and white cheer lost in time or even an old Chippewa year book, please email to Cliff Lissner or mail them to 8258 County O Eagle River, WI 54521. We will gladly return them after we are finished photographing and documenting. Please let us know if you are planning to send something via mail.
We look forward to staying in touch and hearing from you all soon.Camp for All Kids
