About Us

Camp Sinawa is situated on 280 acres of land on Pigeon Lake near Valders, WI. The land was purchased and protected in 1920 for the sake of outdoor recreation and education opportunities for youth.  Camp has a rich history of scouting.  It is non-profit, non-sectarian and state licensed.  The facilities we offer include a large dining hall with a fully stocked kitchen, shower house, dormitory and cabins for rent year round for your large group or your individual family.  Much of the property is managed forest consisting of mixed deciduous forest at the northern edge of the kettle morraine.  Activities include swimming, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, sledding, and indoor and outdoor games.

Meet the Rangers

Eirik and Sara Nelson along with their adventurous children took over operations of Camp Sinawa in May of 2019.  They’re originally from the Milwaukee area, but spent a decade in the Pacific Northwest developing their sense of adventure and love of the outdoors.  They’ve spent the last decade or so in Sheboygan raising their family and running a small family business, volunteering for various non-profits and serving on boards for various organizations.  They bring this passion and experience to camp and intend to work together with the community to bring excitement and excellence to camp.
