When Calumet was purchased by the Lutherans way back in the late 1950s, all attention was given to creating the best summer camp experience for boys and girls. Over the years, Calumet's Resident Camp for Kids grew to be the best place for a kid to spend a week or two learning about others, sharing laughs, developing skills, growing in friendships, and experiencing God's unwavering love. It didn't take long for adults all over New England to want this for their whole family! Thus, Family Camping began -- and it's been going strong for many, many years.

Families, couples, groups,and individuals come to the 65 site campground as a way of unplugging a bit from all that has the family's attention back home. Some who "don't camp" opt for a room at the Conference Center or one of the private-bath Village Cabins. All guests love relaxing by the beach each day.

Due to COVID-19 guidelines and for the safety of our guests and staff, some of our usual group activities will not be scheduled for the summer of 2022.
