    We would love to give you a tour of camp! Just give us a call, or send us an email to set up an appointment to visit us. All visitors must check in at the office, wear a name tag and be escorted by camp staff.

  • Giving back to Highlands

    Camp changed your life, and now you have the opportunity to make camp a possibility for another boy by making a donation to the Illinois chapter of the American Camping Association and designating it to go to the Mike Bachmann Campership Fund

    Tell us your Camp Stories

    Camp Highlands is a special place with a rich history of inspiring boys to be amazing men. We want to collect your special stories and memories of your time at Highlands. Memories, mentors, friends, funny moments, epic or disastrous trips, cabin life – we want to hear it all!
