GRADES: 6-8 (IN FALL 2024)

It’s all about the critters! Goats and rabbits; horses and cats! Enjoy time with the many guest critters at Wanake and learn about the many wild animals including hummingbirds, chipmunks, deer, frogs, and groundhogs. Feed, water, and exercise the Wanake farm animals, and try your hand at pony-carting. Swim, craft, explore the Bible, cookout, play games, canoe, and enjoy s’mores and the ice cream breakfast. Live in the cabins nearest the Wanake Farm with the option of a sleepout under the stars.

If your camper requires a specific housing option, please contact Wanake to arrange for their housing.

My child loved her counselor and the friends she made the most. She loved that her counselor prayed with them daily and sang to them.

Camper Parent

I enjoyed Morning Watch because we got a chance to listen to God speak to us.

Camper

When I became a counselor I found that working as a team of two taught me how to be in positive, healthy relationships with others.

I took another look at Bible stories I’ve read before, looking at them from a different point of view.

Camper

At home, I don’t really connect with God, but now I am going to try my hardest to do so. Wanake makes me a better person. I love it.

Camper

I am constantly in awe of the real-world skills working at camp taught me, and so many of them apply to me daily!

Summer Staff Member

My daughter loved everything! I think the frog pond, making friends, and singing songs ranked pretty high because she kept returning to those experiences.

Camper Parent

I did feel challenged this week at Wanake to be my best and become a better person because I tried lots of things I probably wouldn’t have.

Real friends aren’t measured in years, they’re measured in connection and happiness - making you feel like your best self.

Camper

The best part of camp was my child being able to have pure fun, encouraging kindness, and making new friends. She also said the food was delicious!

Summer Staff Member

I feel that living without electricity, running water, and mattresses made me realize how grateful I am for the things I have, but also know I can live without them.

Camper

I am coming back to camp next summer because these weeks here have been some of the best in my entire life!
