About Camp Halcyon
Our 2024 Camp Halcyon summer camps are located on the grounds of 3 beautiful camps in Wisconsin, Michigan and the Poconos. Our Wisconsin camp, Camp Lakotah's grounds have been the base for our camp sessions since our inception in 2016. For 2024, we have decided to expand our operation to bring the joy of adult summer camping to additional states.
We strive to make Halcyon a place where everyone regardless of age, race, and identity feels welcome and creates unforgettable memories. In the style of a classic summer camp with a plethora of activities, we make sure campers have enough structure to choose from, while making free-time and leisure within that structure the main prerogative.
Each camp ground creates an intimate camp setting amongst the forests of red and white pines where campers are encouraged to enjoy the outdoors, sip, learn, party, play, and breathe in the crisp fresh air!
Who goes to Camp Halcyon? Anyone fun, not judgy and over the age of 21 is encouraged to attend Camp Halcyon. We will only have a limited number of spaces available and we do sell out, so apply early and lock in your spot! We pride ourselves on inclusion and do our very best to bring together the most eclectic and diverse group possible.
How much does Camp Halcyon cost? For our 2024 season, our all-inclusive adult camps vary in price between $600-$700 depending on the location. If you choose to take part in our early pre-registration, the cost for that is $100/pre-registration. Prior to the beginning of the camp season, anyone who has pre-registered will receive a link to complete their remaining balance. An early deposit is not required to attend but does help guarantee you a spot if we sell out early.
What's the difference between pre-registration and regular registration? Our "early bird" pre-registration allows an individual to put down a $100 deposit as a guaranteed placeholder for a camp the following camp season. This deposit is used toward the total balance of what is owed for the camp. This period typically runs from early December through the beginning of the following year. After the pre-registration period ends, we no longer accept deposits or partial payments. If you are unable to sign up during the pre-registration period, you will need to provide the full payment amount when registering for a camp. Full registration will remain open until one month before a camp begins or until a camp sells out, which happens often.
Do you offer refunds if I can't make it to camp? Full camp payments will be refundable up to thirty (30) days prior to the start of your chosen camp date. $100 deposits will be refundable up to fourteen (14) days prior to the start of your chosen camp date. Full camp payments and deposits are transferable to a camp date for the following year up to one (1) week prior to the start of your chosen camp date. Once a camp transfer has been requested, the camper forfeits any and all rights to future deposit and full payment refunds. If the total cost per camper increases the following year, any transferred campers will be required to pay for the remaining cost. Additional refunds and transfers will be approved on a case by case basis.
What are the sleeping arrangements? No glamping here. Our campers stay on cots in co-ed cabin shells in the woods. If you want to stay with your friends / significant other, we can make that happen too! Think of it like Vegas…you won’t be spending much time in the room.
What kinds of activities are included? Each camp offers something different. Below is a list of just some of the activities you can expect at every Camp Halcyon: Lake activities Beach Volleyball Archery Spirits Tasting Arts + Crafts Karaoke Beer Tasting Cooking Classes Wine Tasting Yoga And much much more! *Activities are subject to change based on demand and availability. We are ALWAYS adding new things to camp to keep it fresh.
Are drinks included? YES! Thanks to great sponsors like Lost Whale, and Ope!, we are able to offer a cocktail bar each night at camp, as well as Bloody Mary bars and Mimosas each morning. Many activities also include wine, whiskey or beer as well.
What if I don’t drink? That’s totally fine! We have several campers who don’t drink and we offer a variety of other options.
What about dietary restrictions and food sensitivities? We recognize in today's world that food allergies and sensitivies are more prevelant than ever. If you have special dietary needs or sensitivities, please let us know ahead of time so that we can do our best to accommodate you.
What’s the parking situation? Each camp is different. We strongly encourage carpooling. Spots to park your vehicle are on a first come, first served basis. If you plan on bringing anything larger than a pickup truck, please let us know ahead of time so we can plan accordingly.
Any physical requirements of camp? We do our best to be as accommodating and inclusive as we can. However, Camp Halcyon does include areas with multiple terrains and elevations as well as areas that can’t be reached via motorized vehicles. Expect to be doing quite a bit of walking while you're at camp.
What should I bring? In addition to a great attitude, our summer campers should plan on bringing: Sunscreen (lots of it) Water bottle Bug spray Fan for room (it can get stuffy during the day) Seasonal daytime clothing Warm evening clothes Skivvies Swim gear, including a beach towel and bath towel Sleeping bag and extra blankets (depending on season) Pillow Any medications or essential personal items Shoes, sandals Sunglasses Toiletries (showers and “real” bathrooms are available 24 hours a day) Flashlight or electric lantern Battery banks for charging devices. Electricity in some of the cabins is sparse. We will also have a selection of shirts, sweatshirts and other items available for purchase at the camp canteen.
Are cellphones allowed? While we do encourage everyone to put their phones away for the weekend and step back into a time when screens didn’t run our daily lives, we also realize staying in touch is important. We’ll leave it up to your best judgment how much or hopefully, how little, you need your phone. And who knows, you may not even have service!
Will there be Wifi at camp? While we'd love for everyone to be able to unplug while at camp, we understand that some things may come up with work or home life during the weekend. Unfortunately, we can't guarantee that you'll have service while on site, so if it's urgent, we would suggest heading into town as you'll have the best chance of getting service there.
