A Brief History
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 30, 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.

Making Old Egypt New

I hope you received a letter in the mail last week with pictures of the Old Egypt or as one camper said “ancient Egypt”. It also had pictures Egypt today with the girls side of the bath house and where we are on Phase One, the boys side. One of the female camper’s evaluation said their bathroom was gross. It is time for us to move ahead before next summer and complete Phase Two, the girls side. This is a major improvement and another turning point in our organization. We need your help. Please complete the card that was enclosed and mail to our office soon. If you did not receive a letter we may not have your correct address, or you are not on our mailing list. Please let help us update our files or go to the website www.campwyandot.org and click the yellow “donate” button. There is an option to designate your donation to the Egypt Renovation Phase 2. We are proud of what has been accomplished and know Camp Wyandot means a lot to you so help us and the over 500 campers that will attend camp next summer.

Wyandot Love,

Connie Coutellier (Luige)

The weekend of September 9-11, around twenty people joined us at Camp Wyandot for Fall Work Weekend! We were able to get quite a bit accomplished before the rain (and power outage) and we are so thankful to everyone who attended! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Some of the projects we worked on were:

  • fixing doors
  • cleaning cabins
  • repainting signs
  • putting up windows on the dining hall
  • inventory in the kitchen
  • and the large task of cleaning out the green shed by the dumpster!

Thanks again to everyone who helped out! See you in the Spring!!!

We had another great turn out at Alumni Weekend down at Camp Wyandot! Close to 80 people attended the annual event this year! There was boating, crafts, swimming, hiking, archery, and more! As usual there was reminiscing and browsing through old photo albums and articles dating back to the 1920s when camp began!

Our beautiful Venetian sing was rained out, but we improvised and had a beautiful fire in the dining hall accompanied by over a dozen pretty camp songs and topped off with s’mores at the end of the evening!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for this special event!

Mark your calendars, Alumni Weekend 2017 will be:
Friday, August 18 – Sunday, August 20, 2017!
