Upham Woods’s Family Camp Weekends are places where families play, laugh, and grow together in the spectacular, natural beauty of the Wisconsin Dells.

Take your family on a vacation that gets them unplugged from their iPhones, laptops, X-Boxes, Wii’s and televisions.  Enjoy land and water activities, yummy meals each day, campfires, camp crafts, family adventures, the toboggan run in winter and more!  Families have the option of a stay full of adventure, relaxation or a little bit of both.

Start building your family memories and traditions today through a weekend of outdoor adventure, together at Upham Woods.

“I just wanted to THANK you for a phenomenal experience together! It means so much in our incredibly busy world  to take this kind of time to simply connect with our families, ourselves, each other, and the great outdoors. Great memories were built this last weekend for sure…”

Challenging and fun activities for the whole family. Families will sign up for activities each day.  Many outdoor activities are weather dependent. Examples include…

Stay in your choice of a cabin or dormitory room. Cabins may hold up to 1-3 families (of similar age and gender children).

Cabins are completely winterized – nice and toasty for our winter and autumn camps. A shower house/bathroom is nearby.  Dormitory rooms have four beds each and gender specific bathrooms are available on separate floors.  Meals are served family style along with loads of dining room fun. A fleet of high energy and talented professional staff are ready to entertain, teach and support your needs, while helping your family grow stronger through shared outdoor experiences.

At any time, families may choose to walk the trails or just relax together in your cabin/dorm room, at Sunset Rock, or at our picnic area overlooking the Wisconsin River. Family Camp is open to all ages and includes lodging, meals, staff, and program supplies.
