Since 1984, we have been holding our Family Camp at the conclusion of boys’ camp and, for many families, it has become a tradition and a highlight of their summer season. It is a great way to finish the summer and rest up prior to the school year. In addition to families who are looking simply for a relaxing holiday, we also welcome alumni returning to relive their past camp experiences and also parents interested in introducing their sons to Nominingue and their children to camp. It is a family camping experience without the hassle of setting up the tent or doing the cooking. Wondering what to pack? Click here for a suggested packing list.
In 2023, Family Camp began on the afternoon of Wednesday, August 23rd, and ended after lunch on Sunday, August 27th. The entire camp is four nights, and guests are welcome to choose any length of stay in one-day increments, based on availability.
Our camp chef and kitchen staff look forward to Family Camp because it gives them an opportunity, after the boys’ camp, to show the full range of their talent. They receive “rave reviews” every summer.

The majority of our older and more experienced staff stay for Family Camp. They are eager to show you what a great place we have at Camp Nominingue and to make sure that your vacation is everything you wish it to be.
Evening snack is served before the children begin going to bed and there is usually something to nibble on during the day in the Main Lodge. Soft drinks and chocolate bars are also available for purchase.
