Winter Weekends at Onaway

Beat the winter blues with a trip to Onaway! All winter weekends share common activities that can only be enjoyed during Wisconsin winters including ice fishing, ice bowling, broomball, skating, snowshoeing, sledding, cross-country skiing, and fort building. Onaway Island provides comfortable accommodations in the year-round facilities of Headquarters and the Mess Hall. Don’t miss the chance to see Onaway in all its wintertime splendor. Winter weekends are a great chance for parents to come see the island! Stop by the Brigade to pick up a registration form or download one by clicking the link below.

2019 Winter Weekend Registration Available in November

10th Grade & Co-Leader Weekend (Dates TBD) - In addition to all the regular winter activities, we stage the Wintertime Cross-Country Race, have a bonfire on the ice, and…a number of other activities that we won’t tell you about until you get there.  There’ll even be an opportunity for those who dare to experience the dreaded Chain o’ Lakes Birkebeiner! Participants for this weekend are required to ride the bus.

Girls’ Weekend (Dates TBD) - Three-day winter weekend designed specifically for girls and a parent.  Moms, an older sister or other mentor, or dads are welcome to come along. Get away from town for the weekend and spend it at camp.  There’s a ton of fun to be had on the ice and on the island; games, activities, and lots of great food that you help make.

Family Weekend (Dates TBD) - Three-day winter Onaway experience geared toward family participation. Bring a parent or your whole family and get away from town for a few days in the middle of the long Wisconsin winter!  All ages can participate in a nice balance of planned activities, events, and free time.

Boys’ Weekend (Dates TBD) - Three-day winter Onaway camp designed specifically for boys.  Dads (or an older brother or other mentor) are welcome to come along. Get away from town for the weekend and spend it with the “guys” at camp. There’s a ton of fun to be had on the ice and on the island; games, activities, and lots of great food that you help make!
