Welcome to Camp Timberlane

Meet Our Directors

Camp Timberlane is a camp for boys located in Wisconsin's North Woods, just north of Minocqua, WI. 2018 is our 55th summer of camping fun and friendship. Each year 160 boys from over 30 cities across the US join us for 4 or 8 weeks of wholesome, outdoor fun in a genuinely non-competitive environment.

Directors Leslie and Mike Cohen have over 50 years of camp directing experience between them. While Mike spends his winter preparing for the summer, Leslie teaches at the University of Arizona. They have 2 children, Dustin (24), and Samantha (21).

We invite you to contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss camp with us in more detail.

Our cabin groups consist of 8 - 12 campers who are all going into the same grade level in school, and each cabin will have 3 or 4 counselors.

Our Amazing Staff

Our staff is the most crucial part of a positive and successful summer for our campers. We're very careful in selecting them. We have roughly 85 folks on our staff, a large number of whom are returning from prior summers. Many were campers at Timberlane, growing up through our leadership training program. Our recruiting and selection process for new counselors and trip leaders is meticulous and comprehensive.

Our Non-Competitive Philosophy

Timberlane is a place to be yourself, have fun, and make the best friends you'll ever have. In all aspects, our camp is genuinely non-competitive, meaning that we place the value of teamwork, sportsmanship, and fun waaaaay above all else. On the few occasions that we play games with other camps, we hold no tryouts! Anyone who wants to play is on the team and gets an equal amount of playing time.

We believe the summer at camp should be filled with experiences that develop self-confidence and self-esteem, and teach us how to build each other up. That's where true friendship derives, and that's what enables us to accept new challenges and adventures!
