Camp Wyandot Overnight Camp

In 2021, Camp Wyandot will offer Overnight Camp programs at our historic facility in the Hocking Hills! Wyandot is open to all youth entering grades 2 – 12.  Camp Wyandot is an inclusive, welcoming program and responds to children with respect and consideration and treats all children equally.  Camp Wyandot is pleased to include your child as a camper this summer and to have you as part of the Camp Wyandot family.

Whether it’s exploring Clear Creek or hiking the woods of the Hocking Hills, Camp Wyandot  offers a summer like no other – packed with friends, outdoor nature exploration, non-stop activities and fun.  See our “What is Camp Like?” page to discover why our campers return year after year!

Camp Wyandot operated overnight camp in 2020 with special safety guidelines required by the governor and CDC. Due to the uncertainty of the length of the Covid – 19 pandemic, in 2021 we will be following the current regulations and are confident in our ability to provide a fun and safe experience for our campers.

The bars at the right (bottom on mobile) have more information about camp, the session dates and rates and the registration process.

Why We're Unique

Why We're Unique

Camp Wyandot is in a unique location, known as one of the most bio-diverse regions on the planet. Our camp hosts a variety of habitats, including deciduous and evergreen forests, meadows, a lake, streams, and  one of the clearest creeks in the state. Giant hemlocks, brought by the glaciers, provide shade and humidity for the abundance of ferns, wild flowers, and creatures of all types. Within our forests are some stunning geological formations carved over the millennia from the famous Black Hand sandstone that rises into the Appalachian Mountains.

Why It's Important

Why It's Important

Today, more than any other time in history, our kids need to go outside to play. At Camp Wyandot we develop our natural senses and provide an intimate connection with nature; proven over the millennia to be critical to the health and well being of humans, and just as critical to the health and well being of humans today. We also provide an intimate connection with what makes us human; the ability to share emotions and form deep friendships. We work at developing our “inner senses” as well; an awareness of our personal strengths and weaknesses and our place in the world.

What are our goals and outcomes?

All of Camp Wyandot’s camps and programs address the organization’s mission and an overall goal to provide a quality experience that builds competencies and creates positive life-long memories in a safe and supportive environment.

In such an inclusive, engaging, and challenging environment, youth will:

  • Increase their social and cultural competencies and feel a sense of belonging
  • Develop leadership, teamwork, and cooperation skills
  • Increase self-confidence, independence and empowerment
  • Plan, make choices, reflect and learn from their decisions
  • Build a life-long appreciation and respect for the outdoor environment
  • Develop a sense of respect, responsibility and contribution to their community
  • Be involved in rich group experiences that are inherently interesting and fun
  • Be recognized for their accomplishments

Why is American Camp Association important?

American Camp Association (ACA) Accreditation means that your child’s camp cares enough to undergo a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at your child’s camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun.
