Memorial Day Family Weekend – Camp-O-Rama

Celebrate the spirit of togetherness at Camp Wanake's Memorial Day Family Camp Weekend. Join us for a special weekend retreat where families can come together in the beauty of nature, create lasting memories, and kick off the summer with a fun-filled weekend.

Whether you like to hike, fish, rock climb, canoe, or simply relax around a campfire, you’ll find exactly what you need. Most importantly, your family will get to spend time together, building deeper relationships and meeting other families who will quickly become your lifelong “camp friends”.

Rough it in a tent, drive out in your RV, or rent one of Wanake’s cabins or retreat center rooms. Check-in registration will begin on Friday at 6:30pm and check out is by noon on Monday.

No meals are served this weekend.  Plan to bring your own food and cook over the campfire or in your RV.  Ice for all and refrigeration in retreat centers is available.
