Summer Camp

Join us on the shore of Walloon Lake in picturesque northern Michigan at the Alumni Association’s Camp Michigania. Open to all alums, Michigania offers activities from boating and tennis to horseback riding and archery. Children have even spied a unicorn that makes its home at camp. Whether you experience this unique and all-inclusive Up North adventure with your family or a group of friends, don’t miss a chance to unplug, make memories, and be a kid again. Plan a week devoted to unwinding and making connections with fellow alumni in one of the most beautiful areas of the country.

We’re excited to share a new fast and easy way to instantly book camp starting early spring 2022. Stay tuned, registration available by March 2022!

  • Cancellation before Tuesday of your week: 75% refund
  • Cancellation before Thursday of your week: 50% refund
  • If you are asked to leave camp due to a violation of camp policies: No refund

COVID-19 Policy

Our panel of medical and public health experts have recommended we require all campers 5 & up be fully vaccinated and boosted (if eligible) for COVID-19. Here is some additional information from the U-M health system on COVID-19 vaccines for kids under 12. You will receive information on how to upload your vaccination information in a separate email.

Our policy may be modified as health requirements and access to new boosters change in the coming months. We will provide more detailed information about any additional COVID-19 policies, including indoor masking requirements and any other possible policies, prior to the start of camp.
