Icaghowan (eye-KAH-goh-wahn) is of Lakota origin, meaning To Grow in Every Way. YMCA Camp Icaghowan nurtures character development in campers to grow integrity, self-reliance and leadership skills that will last a lifetime. We have been helping boys and girls learn and discover the excitement of overnight camping for over 100 years. At YMCA Camp Icaghowan, campers try new skills, develop teamwork and leadership skills, and discover a sense of adventure in a resident camp setting on a beautiful 44-acre island in Lake Wapogasset near Amery, WI. Days are action-packed and filled with memorable camp experiences focused on traditional camp favorites including archery, swimming, climbing, canoeing, fishing, campfires and much more.
