Just south of Petoskey, along beautiful Walloon Lake, sits Camp Michigania, the home away from home for Michigan alums and their families.

During Winter Camp, you can stay for a few days or spend a whole week at Michigania. Lodging, meals, and accommodations in modern cabins are included for all sessions. Plus, enjoy wintertime activities like cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding as well as movie nights, family games and tournaments, and more. It’s a delightful way to close out your year.
