Wanake Adventures

July 9 - July 14


For Grades 1-12 in the fall of 2023

Wanake Adventures is the classic “build-your-own-adventure” style camping.

Each group plans their own week choosing from a variety of activities and projects at Wanake, creating and enjoying a unique camping experience.

Activities for all groups include swimming, building fires and shelters, Bible study, arts & crafts, camp-wide games (wide games), worship, hiking, ice cream breakfast, cooking out, singing, 9-Square, and GaGa Ball.

Groups choose from the following activities to round out their week: Canoeing, Visiting the Wanake Farm, Star Gazing/Telescope Watching, Rock Climbing, Fishing, Video Games, Visiting the Frog Pond, and more!

Registered campers are divided into small groups of 12 campers and two counselors with similar aged campers.  (For example, 2nd-4th graders, 6th-8th graders, etc.).  Most groups will have both boys and girls.

Campers are challenged to build skills and grow in age-appropriate ways.  Campers practice:

  • decision making,
  • friendship building,
  • outdoor living,
  • taking responsibility for themselves,
  • leading,
  • living as disciples of Christ, and more.

As campers become tweens, teens and young adults, they are progressively challenged to develop their skills further, have opportunities to try more challenging activities, and take more leadership of their group for a super fun week!

Housing is in Retreat Centers or Cabins with the option of a sleepout under the stars or in the Survival Cabin, Adirondack Shelters or The Rock Lodge.  If your camper requires a specific housing option, please contact Wanake to arrange for their housing.
