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.

Locationoutdoor day camp

The John Beltz Retreat Center of just over 100 acres is located at 4834 Harlem Rd, Galena, Oh. The property includes a barn for gathering with 11 picnic tables. The restroom facilities are not modern, but clean! There are several camp sites with picnic tables and fire rings. The facility also has a large open field for playing as well as a sand volleyball court.

There are over 10,000 pine trees which have been planted by Overbrook Members and Scout Troop 474. There are numerous trails and walk areas.

Two streams of water flow through the property and into the Hoover Reservoir. There are about 10 acres that are mowed and the balance is wooded area with lots of wildflowers, mushrooms and many other plants.

The wildlife on the property includes fox, deer, turkey, woodchucks, squirrels & many others. The streams have salamanders, snails & other animals. There are always things to look at.

Why it’s importantkids playing at outdoor day camp

Today children are plugged in and don’t have many opportunities to play and explore the great outdoors. We are on a mission to get kids up and playing outside again! At Camp Otonwe, campers are given the opportunity to connect with nature through hands-on experiences, without distractions of video games, televisions, and computers. Connecting with nature enhances creativity,  coordination, and concentration and it relieves stress! The campers are empowered to try something new and take a skill to the next level. Daily decisions are made as a unit which helps children learn to get along with others and creates a sense of belonging, an important aspect of day camp.

Our trained staff will make the most of this incredible experience and campers can look forward to a week of growth, learning, and fun!

Weal Program
(Campers Grades 7-10)

“Weal” is a Native American word for helper. This leadership program is open to youth going into grades 7-10 who have previous camping and outdoor experience or who have a strong desire to learn! If you enjoy working with young children and possess a positive attitude, then this may be for you. Weals will learn leadership skills and participate in team building activities as well as work on advanced camping and outdoor living skills. Weals will also mentor younger campers on a daily basis. This program is an excellent stepping stone to the Camp Otonwe Junior Counselor program and the Camp Wyandot CIT Program!
