Pick-Up / Drop-Off
Sign-in is from 4:00 to 5:00 pm Sunday in the Welcome Center. Pick-up is at the cabins from 10:30 to 11:00 am Friday, following a 10:00 am closing program in the Chapel. Also see transportation option below.
Horse Camp Option
Horsemanship Camp can be added as an option to the B.A.S.I.C. camp program for an additional $70. It is geared toward those who want to learn the basics of how to care for horses and spend some fun time in the saddle. The camper will “adopt” a horse for the week. Under the supervision of the staff, it will be the camper’s responsibility to bring in, groom, and tack their horse before riding each day. Once chores are done, it will be time to hit the trail where the stables staff will be there to guide and answer questions. On the trail we will maneuver around obstacles, improving control and management of the horse. Horsemanship Camp runs about two hours each day as a substitute to regular youth camp programming.
Youth campers who are not taking Horsemanship Camp may sign up for horse rides. The cost is $25 for a 45-minute ride if they are registered for camp. We recommend adding your horse ride before you register for camp. You may be able to add a ride on the day you sign in to camp, but since horses are limited, a ride may not be available at that late date.
Contacting Your Camper
If you are interested in contacting your camper during their stay at Camp LuWiSoMo, you can do so either by letter or email. Letter should be sent to Camp LuWiSoMo, Attn: (Camper Name, Cabin), W5421 Aspen Road, Wild Rose, WI 54984. Emails, which will be distributed at meals times, should be sent to [email protected] and include the camper name and cabin in the subject. Campers will not be able to email back, but they can mail a letter if they bring along an envelope and stamp.
A wide variety of activities are offered to help campers develop skills and knowledge they can use for the rest of their lives, including archery, swimming, canoeing, fishing, hiking, camping, nature skills, arts & crafts, horseback riding, orienteering, team-building, and more. We are a Christian camp, so each day campers will participate in morning devotions, afternoon chapel service, nightly campfire with sing-along, and bedtime devotions. Add to these all-camp games and free time, and no one complains about a nice rest break during the heat of the afternoon!
To assist week-long campers in getting to and from LuWiSoMo, we’re offering transportation from designated locations in Hales Corners, Menomonee Falls, and Fond du Lac. See location details and fees below. If you are outside of these pick-up areas and need transportation for a larger group of campers coming in the same week, please give us a call and we’ll do all we can to help. All rides are chaperoned by LuWiSoMo staff. Ride times may vary slightly from week to week. We will contact you to confirm details about two weeks prior to the start of your camp week. Rides may be provided with a 15-passenger van, bus, or staff vehicle. Sunday night dinners and Friday breakfast are included. A bag lunch for Friday afternoon is available for $6.50.
