YMCA Camp Icaghowan mess hall, located on a 40-acre island on Lake Wapogasset, near Amery, Wisconsin

Real-photo postcard with image of the two story mess hall in wooded area. "All rights reserved, A. Pearson Co. Inc. 2014 NO 3rd St. Minneapolis 11, Minn." YMCA Camp Icaghowan is located near Amery, Wisconsin, on a 40-acre island on Lake Wapogasset. Camp Icaghowan was started by the Minneapolis YMCA to help support their work to build the “body, mind and spirit” of young people. Icaghowan opened in 1909 on a 15-acre site on Green Lake near Chisago City, Minnesota. In the early years, campers would travel to camp by street car, horse drawn wagon and hiking. As the popularity of camp grew, the Minnesota site became too small. In 1945, the YMCA bought the current 120-acre site on Lake Wapogasset near Amery, Wisconsin. The special feature of the new site was that 44 acres of the property is an island. The island and mainland property is connected by a narrow land bridge built in 1903 by the Wallace Family. Like most camps of the early 1900s, Icaghowan started as a boy’s camp but welcomed girls in 1970.
