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.

We are working to reconnect alumni with each other. We are categorizing alumni by decade and by club leader or years at Camp Wyandot. Please submit the form on the “Are You an Alum?” page and we will try to get you in touch with others.

Real tools for connecting people

We’re fortunate to live in a time when great tools have been created to help people get in touch and stay in touch. Social networking is like being able to see the highways that lead from city to city (the networks that connect people). A map with cities but no highways would be pretty useless! Help your friends find each other by showing the connections between you and other people you know.

The best tool created for this so far is Facebook.

Never used Facebook? Don’t worry, we’ll help you get started.

  1. Go to www.Facebook.com
  2. You’ll see a signup form right on the front. Don’t worry about private information. If there is a question in the profile that you don’t want to answer, just skip it! You DO need to give your real name and email. It’s helpful if you add your maiden name to your First Name (Anne Brown Smith) to help people find you who might not know your married name. Your email address will not be published on the Internet publicly. However it’s needed so when someone sends you a message on the Facebook site, that message can be relayed to you. (Facebook knows not everyone wants to check their site every day for messages!) It’s also helpful to list your city, especially if you have a common name. If someone searches for Anne Smith, they are likely to get hundreds of results. Facebook automatically sorts them by city, as long as you identify your city when you sign up.
  3. Now, use the search bar to search for “Camp Wyandot.” You’ll see a page with some news updates. Click the button that says, “Become a Fan.” (If you can’t find it, click here.)
  4. After that, use the search bar to type in the names of old friends you’d like to find. That’s it! You’re off to the races!

As we progress with getting more alumni on Facebook, Groups will begin to form there for certain groups of alumni, such as Camp Wyandot clubs looking to reunite. As long as you are a Fan of the Camp Wyandot page (see step 3) you’ll receive updates when this happens, and you can join groups you are interested in.
