Wanakee's EXPO Camp and Open House is June 23, 2018. Children ages 4-12 are invited to a FREE day of camp, where they'll swim, play games, get creative in the craft zone, explore nature, enjoy lunch and songs in the dining hall, and finish their day with S'mores. Registration required; visit www.wanakee.org During the Open House, families can meet our dedicated summer staff and tour the camp facilities including the ropes course, cabins, dining hall, and swim area. This is a wonderful way for new campers and their parents to learn about camp life. Camp tours run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
It's not too late to sign-up for camp. Many programs still have space remaining. From Toddlers in Tow, to performing arts, to High Adventure, we have programs for all interests and ages. Visit www.wanakee.org to learn more.
