The Story

Welcome to YMCA Camp Nissokone, an "up north" retreat with nearly a mile of shoreline on beautiful Lake Van Etten in Oscoda, Michigan. Founded in 1914, Nissokone means ‘Three Fires.’ With more than a hundred years of tradition, Nissokone is one of the most experienced camps in the country. Whether you’re enjoying the breeze from Lake Van Etten, taking in the view on horseback or building confidence on our High Adventure course, there’s something for everyone at Camp Nissokone.  Let us show you how we’ve made camp a safe, fun and unforgettable experience for over a hundred years.

 

Your generous donations make it possible for children facing financial hardships to attend camp. 100% of your donation supports scholarships for campers of all abilities.
