CAMP LOCATION: We are located 46.4 miles southeast of Columbus, OH on over 100 prime acres in the Hocking Hills region surrounded on three sides by the Clear Creek Metro Park.

Our camp hosts deciduous and evergreen forests, meadows, a lake, streams, and one of the clearest creeks in the state with over 40 different species of fish inhabiting its waters. Within our forests are some stunning geological formations.

Camp is an explorer’s paradise! There are cliffs, caverns, creeks, nooks and crannies to investigate. There is a lake for fishing and a large field for activities.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our camp facilities are rustic. Camper cabins do not have electricity and plumbing. There are bathroom and shower facilities within a short walking distance. Most overlook the lake. We have a recreation/dining hall, craft room, garden, lake for canoeing/kayaking and fishing, pool for swimming, and garden.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Wyandot, Inc. was founded as a Camp Fire Council in 1913. In 1928, the council became an Ohio nonprofit corporation and purchased Camp Wyandot in the Hocking Hills. As of April 31, 2013, Camp Wyandot, Inc. became an independent organization and is no longer affiliated with Camp Fire.

Today, Camp Wyandot serves boys and girls with summer day and overnight camps and our Wyandot Explorers Club program.
Camp Wyandot provides an inclusive nurturing environment for youth to have fun, make friends, serve others, and explore the great outdoors.

Young people are interdependent with the natural world, yet know relatively little about it through direct experience. Through our overnight and day camp programs, we encourage development of natural senses and provide an intimate connection with nature while youth learn leadership, cooperation with others, and community responsibility while building self-awareness and forming friendships.

Camp Wyandot Overnight and Day Camps are offered during the summer for youths of all ages and include activities such as outdoor skills, camp outs, creeking, hiking, crafts, swimming/swimming lessons, kayaking/canoeing, archery, and special themed programs. We offer leadership programs at both our overnight and day camps. Currently, our day camp program is held at Highbanks Metro Park. We have American Camp Association (ACA) Accreditation which means that Camp Wyandot has undergone a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.

Camp Wyandot’s overall goal is to provide a quality experience that builds competencies and creates positive life-long memories in a safe and supportive environment.

In an inclusive, engaging, and challenging environment, youth will:

-Increase their social and cultural competencies and feel a sense of belonging
-Develop leadership, teamwork, and cooperation skills
-Increase self-confidence, independence and empowerment
-Plan, make choices, reflect and learn from their decisions
-Build a life-long appreciation and respect for the outdoor environment
-Develop a sense of respect, responsibility and contribution to their community
-Be involved in rich group experiences that are inherently interesting and fun
-Be recognized for their accomplishments

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: A CIT (counselor in training) is a camper enrolled in a specialized leadership program which is designed to build up behavior management, risk management/safety awareness, communication, decision making, team building, and interdependency within a community.

The program aims to utilize this combination of skills to develop effective future leaders. A CIT should gain not only greater confidence and sense of accomplishment, but also a variety of skills and knowledge that will help them develop as competent leaders in all walks of life, not just a camp setting. The program accepts a limited number of applicants per session.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Payment assistance/camperships available. Application deadline April 15.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Fourth of July Family Celebration - Join in a special family camp program with your whole family in your own cabin. An assigned counselor will help with scheduling and leading activities. During the day and the evening of the 4th of July, there will be a special celebration for the whole camp.

The cost for Family Camp is $45.00 per person which includes two nights lodging and 4 meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday and breakfast on Saturday). Children age 3 and under are free.

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.
