Camp Brosius color

The sailboats of Camp Brosius, ready to take to the water, provide a rainbow of color on the shores of Elkhart Lake. Originally built as a resort in the late 1880’s by William Schwartz, William Fleck purchased the cottage in 1899 and renamed it Fleck’s Resort. This property is now known as Camp Brosius and is owned by Indiana University. It was purchased in 1921 by the Normal College of the American Gymnastic Union to offer summer physical education courses to its students. Named for George Brosius, long-time Normal College director, the camp continues operations through and beyond the college’s 1941 merger with Indiana University.
