WELCOME TO CAMP LOHIKAN!
Camp Lohikan has been owned and operated by the Buynak family since 1957. For over 60 years we have provided a safe, nurturing camp environment where children are cared for and encouraged to try new things, learn new skills, make friends, and most of all have FUN!
Amazing things happen when kids are having the time of their lives! In our supportive camp community campers receive lots of positive reinforcement and come home after the camp experience with more independence, stronger self-confidence, and enhanced social skills. It's an experience with benefits that will last a lifetime!
What sets Camp Lohikan apart from other camps is our program and staff. Nowhere else will you find a summer program with more challenging, exciting activities than Lohikan. Campers get to choose from 65+ arts, sports, and adventure activities every day! And they're surrounded by highly skilled staff members who enjoy working with children. At least 50% of Lohikan's staff are experienced, returning staff members. Our key management staff have over 200 years of combined camp experience.
First-time campers receive special attention. Campers coming to Camp Lohikan for their first summer are assigned to senior staff members who monitor their needs and happiness on a daily basis. Our success with first-time campers is a Lohikan hallmark and we back it up with a Tuition Refund Guarantee!
If your plans allow, we encourage you to visit us during the summer to witness the spirit of Camp Lohikan first hand. If this is not possible, we provide tours of the camp during the off season for your convenience. We can also visit your home to answer questions you might have.
