Army Lake Camp has developed a variety of programs in various fields of outdoor education.  Whether your goal is plant and animal study, wilderness and camping skills, teambuilding and personal challenge, or just an awareness of the natural environment, Army Lake Camp has something for you. 

 Choose a program from the list or we can create a custom program for your group.  Students of all ages will enjoy our seasonal nature hikes as we look for signs of animal activity and interesting natural finds.  Students learn how plants and animals co-exist and which ones make southeast Wisconsin their home.

 Army Lake Camp is home to deer, coyote, fox, raccoon, opossum, skunk, muskrat, mice, owl, hawk, turkey vulture, sandhill crane,   great blue heron, woodpecker, and a host of other animals and includes forest, marsh, fields and an 80 acre lake.

 Teachers: Ask about our activity sheets to continue the learning  back in the classroom.
