This year, Camp Mountaineer will again capture the boys’ imagination as each is challenged to grow in character, strategy, and spirituality, accompanied each step of the way by high school mentors and Legionary priests and brothers. The realism mounts with new characters and another brand new storyline!
Once again, Camp Mountaineer teams up with YMCA Camp Nissokone. Camp Nissokone was founded in 1914, and ever since has been a jewel of the YMCA and a premier Michigan Summer camp. The Camp Nissokone staff are known for their ability to combine classic camp activities with exciting experiences to meet the needs of every camper, which they have been doing for the last hundred years. Located in Oscoda township on the picturesque Van Etten Lake, Camp Nissokone offers climbing walls, canoeing, horseback riding, team challenge courses, fencing, theater and drama, a high ropes course, zip lining, archery, paintball, gaga ball, outdoor skills, swimming, sailing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, tubing, kayaking, a pontoon boat cruise, and a giant water slide!
Camp Mountaineer, 3-time winner of the Best of Clarkston Award (2015, 2016, 2017), is also supported by ConQuest, 2016’s largest provider of summer camps in North America.
Combine the tradition, activities, and forest/lakefront venue of Camp Nissokone, the support of ConQuest, which was the largest provider of summer camps in the United States of America last summer, and the top notch formation and Catholic spirituality provided by the Legionaries of Christ, and you are in for a life changing experience!
