Another Year in the Books

It was my 30th year up at PorterCamp and it just doesn't seem to get old.   I have taken year over year vacations to the same places and it always seems that the location and the activities just get dull over time... but never up at camp.   I've been to 30 closing campfires.  Every year the emotion our campers and staff show when leaving a place they have only been at for a week astonishes me.  

It was another great year.  The kids had a lot of fun and I know some learned some great new skills.  The weather cooperated all but one day but let's be clear, rain doesn't really slow us down.  

We are working on dates for next year, working on updating the site and working on closing out PorterCamp2014.   If you have questions please email us at   We will be in touch soon with links to register for next year, links to apparel and our year round canteen, and reminders about where all the photos we took this year are posted and how to get to them.  

I want to thank all the campers, parents and staff for another amazing year in the North Woods.  Looking forward to next summer!  Enjoy your year.  Stay in touch.  Keep the shark song fresh in your heads.
