Father Son Weekends

The Tradition of a Lifetime! 

There is nothing quite like spending a weekend enjoying the northwoods at Camp U-Nah-Li-Ya with your son. Father Son weekends are one of our longest running traditions here at camp. This program is more than just playing in the mud and sitting around a campfire; the father-son outdoor experience is uniquely transformative to your relationship as it will be integral to some of your fondest memories together. The opportunity for young boys to be outdoors surrounded by positive male role models is beneficial to their character and development as a young man. Join us at Camp U-Nah-Li-Ya for a weekend of hearty laughs, new experiences, and bonding with your son that you will remember for years to come.

COVID Procedures

You can expect to see some adaptations to our typical family programs in order to best mitigate the risks of COVID-19. Upon check in, we will do a basic screening and tempurature check to ensure that all guests are healthy. Bathrooms and shared spaces will be cleaned and disinfected twice daily by traning camp staff. The program is designed to provide engagin opportunities to interact while maintaining safe physical distance. Hand sanitizing stations have been installed at every building, and each cabin, program area, and restroom will be equipt with disinfecting kits to be used by guests before and after use of high touch items. A full and detailed description of our COVID-19 related policies and procedures will be available in the resources below. 


During Father Son Weekend, dads and sons stay together in our cabins. Each cabin has a firep pit and wood is included in your stay. When registering, be sure to list the friends you would like to bunk with, that way you all can stay together. You’ll need to bring a sleeping bag and pillow for our bunk beds, a twin sized set of linens works well too. Check out our virtual tour of camp to view the cabins on site. 


All meals are provided by camp!  Our outstanding kitchen staff prepare a huge spread of food for each meal with different options for young and old alike.  From Friday night to Sunday morning you will have all the fuel you need to stay full and active!  If you have any special dietary needs please indicate that during registration.  We can accommodate most special diets.
