Our specialty camps provide a perfect chance for campers with specific interests to explore and learn important skills in those areas, while still participating in the day-to-day structure of summer camp. Our specialty camps provide a focused program for campers by committing the three skill class periods in the morning and at least one of the afternoon cabin activities to their area of focus.

​New Heights

Session Dates: June 26 - July 1

If being off of the ground and zipping through the treetops sounds appealing to you, then this is the camp for you! Campers will become the experts of our challenge and adventure courses here at Camp Pepin. During their session, New Heights campers will practice the skills needed to setup, run, and maintain the climbing wall, high ropes course, and zipline course. Participants will also work through a series of teambuilding activities to experience the necessity of collaboration and communication during challenging scenarios. At the end of the week, campers will travel offsite to apply their newfound knowledge and take part in an exciting climbing excursion!

Prevailing Winds

Session Dates: August 7 - August 12

Our Prevailing Winds sailing camp is designed for campers looking to take full advantage of our incredible location on Lake Pepin. Campers will learn the ins and outs of a sailboat, the theory behind how sailboats work, and - obviously - how to sail! Guided by certified sailing instructors, campers will put our small fleet of sailboats to good use and harness the lake breezes to work for them. At the end of the week, campers will serve as crew aboard a larger sailing craft and test their skills as budding sailors!
