Keep the Fire Burning.

About Friends of Camp Eagle Ridge

We are a group of family, friends, and alumni of Camp Eagle Ridge, a boys and girls leadership summer camp in Northern Wisconsin. We have experienced either first hand or through our children and friends the wonderful life-changing lessons that a summer at a quality camp can teach and are interested in continuing and expanding that opportunity for generations of children to come.

Friends of Camp Eagle Ridge is a 501c3 that strives to reconnect the past with the present while creating opportunities for the future through scholarships, volunteer opportunities, and camp enrichment programs.

Together, we can keep the fire burning for future campers to enjoy forever.

Our Events


October 2nd, 2016

We celebrated a day of family fun & festive fall activities and raised money to send deserving kids to summer camp. It was a great event with live music, games, a bonfire and an auction with amazing items including Disney Park Hopper Tickets and American Girl Doll. Money raised during the event went toward camperships to give children the experience of a lifetime at summer camp.

Alumni Week 2018

June 14 - 17, 2018

Join us for a few work and play days at Camp Eagle Ridge! Help us prepare camp for this summer, reunite with old friends and make a bunch of new ones! To attend Alumni Week, you need only be a friend of Camp Eagle Ridge and over 18 years old! (Children ages 6 and under are welcome with their parents) This is a great time for friends and family to visit and experience the magic of Camp!

Our Impact


We believe that every child deserves a great summer camp experience no-matter their finacial situation. We strive to connect campers in need with the support they need.

Connecting Past & Present

The magic of camp doesn't end when the bus pulls away. FOCER provides opportunities for alumni campers to keep the spirit alive and give back.
