The Honeymoon cabin is a very small guest cottage that was moved to the campgrounds in its earliest years and housed Courage’s founder, Wilco Schoenbohm and his wife, Virginia in the first year of their marriage. This 11×15 cabin was dubbed the Honeymoon cabin and kept that name until it was taken out of use about 8 years ago. This rustic little cabin became prime, highly prized housing for summer camp staff. It was really the only private housing unit on the grounds for decades.

When planning started a couple of years ago for Camps 50th anniversary, staff and volunteers got the idea to resurrect this little building and move it to the middle of camp to serve as a museum to preserve camp memories. Staff alumni, led by a memorial gift from the family alumnus, George Ludcke, helped fund remodeling costs for moving the building to its new place and restoring it to look pretty close to its original state. Led by alum Gregg “Spike” Carlson, a group of summer staff alumni that spanned four decades got donated materials and volunteered their time to bring the structure back to life. This was the first alumni-sponsored building or remodeling project at Camp Courage.

The building will house scrapbooks, a camp timeline, and a patchwork quilt sampling the camp logo
