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 non-profit organization and is no longer affiliated with Camp Fire. We have been preserving the property and educating children and families on the importance of nature and conservation by providing outdoor experiences at that site since 1928. Today, Camp Wyandot has been expanded to serve a broader audience, opening the camp to the public with programs for both boys and girls, families, community groups, schools and individuals.
Camp Wyandot provides an inclusive nurturing environment for youth to have fun, make friends, serve others, and explore the great outdoors.
Providing transformative experiences by connecting youth with the natural world in a rustic group environment.
At Camp Wyandot, we value:
- quality experiences
- the natural world
- positive youth development
- our past, present, and future
