As legend has it, a group of about 30 boys hiked from Milwaukee to camp on the shores of Phantom Lake over 110 years ago. Respect for each other and for traditions is valued. This is a week that boys can be boys and all ages enjoy it. Kettle games, or games in the woods, are a favorite all camp activity. The Great Battle kettle game has taken on legendary status. All boys look forward to the traditional awards night on Friday followed by the Square ceremony. Boys return home having grown in wisdom and stature, knowing they have left their mark on Phantom Lake YMCA Camp.
