Why Summer Camp?
Located just 2 miles north of Wisconsin Dells, Upham Woods is 310 acres of beautiful mixed deciduous/coniferous forests and sandstone formations right on the Wisconsin River. Whether your child has never been to Upham Woods or wants another chance for an amazing Upham Woods camp experience, we’re here to make a memorable summer. Studies have shown that going to summer camp helps youth grow in areas such as self-confidence, independence, making friends, exploring, and learning new activities. Even for a short time period, time spent at camp can benefit a child all the way through adulthood.
