An Anokijig-Style Open House

About four years ago, Camp Anokijig was hosting "open houses," but they were very different than the ones we host today. Back in 2005, realtors brought land developers and speculators in to size up Anokijig for various construction projects that had nothing to do with camping, kids or the great outdoors.

Although we are not very far-removed from those days, Anokijig is now hosting a much different open house, one that celebrates all the great things Anokijig has been since 1926 and continues to be well into the 21st Century. This weekend Anokijig will host their Annual "Taste of the Outdoors" event, which is our own version of an open house, except the only thing we're trying to sell is a great time in the great outdoors.

Our doors will be open from 11AM until 4PM on Saturday and 9:30AM until 3PM on Sunday and we'll be serving up an all-you-can-eat buffet the entire time. Admission is just $8 for campers 13 and older and $5 for campers 4-12 (campers 3 and under are always free). All of our program areas will also be open for visitors to enjoy, including boating on Little Elkhart, archery, arts & crafts, archery and pony rides. If you've never been to Anokijig before, but you've always been curious about what it entails, this weekend is the perfect time to visit. If you're an alumni (either camper or counselor) of Anokijig and you'd like to come back and remember some great times, we're waiting for your visit.

If you're thinking about sending your child to Anokijig, but you'd like a closer look, come on up. If you're a parent on the East Coast, who couldn't get their child into one of those $1,000/week summer camps out there and you're looking for alternatives, we'll even offer complimentary round-trip shuttle service from the Milwauke airport*

Anokijig is also using this weekend to help our local food pantry. We will be raffling off five family weekend packages and each non-perishable food item our guests donate to the food pantry is good for one raffle ticket (they can also be purchased, in case you forget to bring food).

As always, if you have any questions about this weekend or Camp Anokijig in general, you can always call our camp office directly at 920-893-0782. We hope to see you this weekend!

*Offer good only for parents or guardians of camper-age children, who have sent their children to $1,000+ week East Coast camps in the 12 months and are flying to and from Wisconsin specifically and exclusively to tour Anokijig for the same purpose.
