About Camp Halcyon
Camp Halcyon summer camps are located on the grounds of beautiful Camp Lakotah in Wautoma, Wisconsin. Situated on Little Hills Lake, Camp Lakotah's grounds have been the base for our camp sessions since our inception in 2016.
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.
The grounds create 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! For more on our grounds and location, check out our Campus tab.
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 2023 season, our all-inclusive adult camps cost $500. If you choose to take part in our early pre-registration, the cost for that is $100/early registration. Prior to the beginning of the camp season, anyone who has pre-registered will receive a link to complete their remaining $400 balance. An early deposit is not required to attend but does help guarantee you a spot if we sell out early.
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? Below is a list of just some of the activities you can expect at Camp Halcyon: Canoeing Kayaking Beach Volleyball Archery Spirits Tasting Arts + Crafts Jerky Making Karaoke Beer Tasting Axe/Knife Throwing Cooking Classes Wine Tasting Yoga on the Beach 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? 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? There are plenty of spots to park your vehicle but they 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.
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 Seasonal daytime clothing Warm evening clothes Skivvies Swim gear, including a beach towel Sleeping bag and extra blankets (depening 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 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.
