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 will my child do at camp?

  • swimming with trained and certified aquatics staff

  • creeking (splashing in Clear Creek, catching and identifying critters with the nature specialist)
  • fishing from the shores of Lake Atagahi
  • hiking, including orienteering for older campers
  • outdoor cooking over an open fire, planning meals, taking lunch hikes
  • overnights away from the cabin, sleeping under the stars and cooking out

  • crafts and other quiet activities
  • archery and outdoor team building games on the flats
  • songs, camp traditions, closing ceremonial fire, and much more!

Why is American Camp Association accreditation 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.
