CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Wyandot Day Camp provides a wonderful opportunity for children going into grades 1 – 10 to experience the joy of nature in a fun and safe environment. We focus on building outdoor living skills and developing a greater sense of self reliance. Campers will master new skills, try new things, and develop great friendships. We value diversity, open-heartedness, and environmental sustainability and strive to instill these values in our campers.

Program runs from 9am to 4pm

Wyandot Day Camp composes small units or groups of campers based on age that are then guided by their assigned counselor. The unit cooperates to plan their upcoming week together as a family. Activities may include fishing, creeking, arts and crafts, nature hikes, cook – outs on Fridays and much more. The counselor to camper ratio is 1 to 8. The highlights of the summer for our campers are the field trip days each Wednesday where campers get to enjoy activities off site and experience other environments. Campers also love the unique guests and special programs, which occur once a week.

*Please note that a sack lunch must be provided except for Fridays when cookouts take place. There is no refrigeration available so please pack accordingly.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Weal Junior Counselor Program: “Weal” is the Native American word for helper. This leadership program is open to youth that have previous camping and outdoor experience or those that have the desire to learn those skills. If you have completed sixth grade, enjoy working with children, possess a positive attitude and want to give back to the community, then this program may be for you.

The program consists of 3 tracks: Outdoor Skills, Leadership, and Community Service. Teens will receive programming in all three areas and will have the opportunity to concentrate on one or more areas during the summer. Wyandot Junior Counselor program is an excellent way to earn community service hours for school and gain experience for the CIT program at Camp Wyandot. Space is limited to 15 teens per week.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Payment assistance/camperships available. Application deadline April 15. Visit Our Camp Website Link: for more information.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Wyandot Explorer Club Program is community based and volunteer run arranged by age and geographical location. Wyandot Explorers build on four explorer categories: Community Exploration, Self-Exploration, Environmental and Science Exploration, and Creative Exploration. Clubs meet during the school year and we provide the training, the framework, the materials, and the support for each club. A volunteer adult leader guides, coaches, and supervises the club’s progress which differ depending on age.

Weekend Themed Programs are offered at Camp Wyandot for families and individuals that highlight nature activities and exploration and provide networking opportunities.
