Kishwauketoe – Full Week (Grades 2-4)
July 30-August 4
Kishwauketoe (or “Kish” for short) is for the campers entering 2nd through 4th grade that are looking for an overnight experience at Covenant Harbor. Kish offers partial week (2 or 3 nights) and full week (5 nights) camp experiences for your camper.
Kish is a great way to introduce the overnight camp experience.
Because of its unique location, intentionally smaller group size and age appropriate programming, Kish is a great way to introduce your 2nd through 4th grader to overnight camp. We purposefully limit the number of campers at Kish to help them feel comfortable in the Kishwauketoe Village and to feel like a part of the community during their time at camp.
Kish is fun.
The programs are packed with activities like the waterfront, tree swing, adventure activities, arts and crafts, carpetball, campfires (and smores!) and so much more! Kish kids spend the week getting to know their cabin mates and counselor, making decisions about what activities they choose to do each day, growing in independence and decision-making at the canteen, and singing songs and playing silly games during sessions.
Kish is unique for them.
Our trained staff works hard each year to create opportunities for campers of this age to partake in experiences for the first time that they may not have the chance to participate in anywhere else. Each activity, session and interaction helps kids learn more about themselves, others and Jesus. Our schedule and Bible programs are designed to be age-appropriate and engaging so kids learn while having fun.
Kishwauketoe full-week programs begin on Sunday afternoons and conclude in the late afternoon on Fridays. Partial weeks are available on a few different time frames to meet a variety of schedules. Please see the complete schedule at the top of the page for more details. Our programs are unique for each age group of campers as well.

Note that the grade for our camp programs is based on the upcoming (2023-2024) school year. Therefore, during the summer, Kish (grades 2-4) camps will be filled with campers who have finished 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade. Kish campers must be at least 6 years old by their week of camp to register.
Finding the right camp fit for your camper is important, especially for those campers in between programs. Campers entering 4th grade have the option of a Kishwauketoe week of camp or our Pier 30 camp.
To help, start by asking yourself a few questions about your camper.
- Does your camper prefer to play with younger children?
- Does your camper enjoy being a part of a smaller setting?
- Does your camper prefer a more structured, routine, supportive environment with more boundaries in place?
- Has your child spent less than two nights away from home without you?
If you answered yes to some of these questions, Kish might be the right fit!
You know your camper best, so we encourage you to trust what you feel would be most beneficial for your camper. If you have any questions or concerns about which program is best for your camper, please give us a call at 262-248-3600.

Prior to camp (recommended) and at check-in, you will have the opportunity to deposit money in your camper’s spending money account. Campers have the opportunity to visit the camp store each day. Depositing spending money allows your camper to make choices without having to keep track of any cash. The store carries candy (.25-1.50), snacks (.25-2.00), drinks (.50-2.00), souvenirs (.25-25.00) and clothing (5.00-45.00). Campers are only allowed to go to the store once each day and are limited per day on the amount spent on candy and snacks. We do not limit water or Gatorade.
Throughout the week, campers will learn about this project and will have the opportunity to donate a portion of their spending money (between $0-$5.00) to our mission project.
