Join your Fox Nation Families at Camp Anokijig!

Fun and Family!

The Fox Nation is a compilation of “tribes” across eastern Lake County, comprised of boys (guides) tribes and girls (princesses) tribes of kids in similar age ranges, grades K-6.

Tribes meet on a regular basis for crafts and activities, in addition to participating in monthly Nation events throughout the year. The Nation hosts three campouts per year at Camp Anokijig in Wisconsin.

The Fox Nation has played an important role in the lives of North Shore families since 1961. The program’s rich history dates back to 1926 and is based on the strong characteristics of American Indian culture: dignity, patience, endurance, spirituality, connectedness to the earth and concern for family and community. Our goal is to support and encourage a father’s vital role as teacher, counselor and friend to his child(ren).
