What are the driving directions to Camp Anokijig?

You've remembered to pack everything for your child's first week at summer camp and you even made it out of the house on time.  Now, you suddenly find yourself 30 minutes from your house, heading in the general direction of Camp Anokijig, without actually knowing how to get there.  What do you do?  If you're like many folks, you summons the Internet, via your smart phone and begin searching for directions to Anokijig.  We thought we'd post them here, just in case you were having trouble with your navigation system.

If you're coming from the South, take I-43 North and exit to the left at the split for Highway 57, which directs you toward Plymouth.  At this point, you will be about 30 minutes from Anokijig.  Stay on Highway 57 North all the way through Random Lake, Waldo & Plymouth.  You will pass 23 as you head North of Plymouth and  a few miles up the road is Highway J.  Turn left on Highway J and head West.  The next major road is Highway E.  Turn right on Highway E and head North.  Camp Anokijig will be just a few miles up the road on the left hand (West) side and you will see our Indian head sign as you come up the hill.

If you are coming from the North, exit off I-43 at Highway 23 in Sheboygan and head West for several miles.  You will cross over Highway 57 and shortly after that, you will come up on Highway E.  Turn right on Highway E and head North for a few minutes and Camp Anokijig will be on your left (West) side of the road.

If you are coming from the West (or Madison area), take Highway 151 North to Highway 23 and head East on 23.  Shortly after you cross over Highway 67, you will come to Highway E.  Turn left on Highway E and head North for a few minutes and Camp Anokijig will be on your left (West) side of the road.

If you are coming from the East (or Sheboygan area), take Highway 23 West, crossing over Highway 57, until you reach Highway E.  Turn right on Highway E and head North for a few minutes and Camp Anokijig will be on your left (West) side of the road.

We hope these directions help you find Camp Anokijig, but if you still need assistance, please don't hesitate to call us at 920-893-0782

Equestrian Teen Tour Summer Camp?

We thought our eyes were playing tricks on us when we read the story about the Equestrian Teen Tour Summer Camp.  Accommodations at Joseph Stalin's former estate, near Moscow, roudtrip airfare from New York, morning riding lessons, museum and cultural tours of Moscow, St. Petersburg, including ballet and opera performances.  How can we possibly compete with that?

The answer is we simply cannot.  Even though we have about 50 horses and nearly 400 acres of pristine rolling hills and forest land, our ranch program simply cannot hold a candle to the Equestrian Teen Tour Summer Camp.  However, families who aren't able to swing the $8,500 price tag for this one week "camp" experience may be able to afford to send their son or daughter to Camp Anokijig's ranch program, where we charge $7,905 per week less, although ground transportation (the camp bus) to and from Anokijig is not included in that price.

We must be doing something right, because Anokijig is nearly sold out for the remainder of the summer.  We do have some availability remaining, but space is limited.  Call the camp office today to save your spot at 920-893-0782

Anokijig's Newest Skill: Drumming

Each year we try to add new and interesting skills at Anokijig. This year, drumming was added to the lineup, although that title is a bit misleading. Our head drumming (no pun intended) instructor, Sandy Stewart, has brought with her a host of percussion items, including a wide variety drums, as well as castanets, maracas, cowbells, claves, & g├╝iros, to name a few.

The end result is an enchanting musical experience, that adds a very cool ambiance to all of Anokijig, as the sounds of the drums echo through the hills and valleys of Anokijig.
