Frequently Asked Questions
Camp Wyandot is an independent non-profit organization whose mission is to provide an inclusive, nurturing environment for youth to have fun, make friends, serve others, and explore the great outdoors.
Most of our campers are from central Ohio. Approximately half of our campers are female and half are male. About 60% of our campers are returning campers which is above the national average. Many of our campers enter the Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program and go on to become counselors.
Camp Wyandot is open to all! We welcome campers who are participants in other youth organizations. Campers who are members of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, 4H and other scouting organizations, as well as children who are not affiliated with a scouting program are welcome at Camp Wyandot.
Our counselors are college-aged adults who receive extensive training. A thorough background check is performed on all counselors. We hire counselors who are enthusiastic, encouraging, and caring. They have often been former campers or have participated in our Counselors-In-Training program as 16 & 17 year olds.
Younger campers stay on cabin row along Lake Atagahi in screened-in cabins. Older children stay in secluded units on the opposite hill living in tebins (½ tent, ½ cabin) or tree houses. More information about our facilities is found on our website.
At Camp Wyandot we focus on small group living and group decision making grounded in Camp Wyandot traditions. With their counselor the children develop their own schedule for the week including activities such as boating, creeking, hiking, swimming, crafts, singing, storytelling, fishing, cookouts and games. In addition, they may choose to go on an overnight and sleep under the stars for one or more nights.
Older campers learn advanced skills such as making or choose special teen sessions.
No matter the age, your child will not be bored!
All staff are trained in Red Cross first aid and emergency procedures. A Registered Nurse is on staff the entire summer and dispenses prescriptions and administers medical care. Camp Wyandot follows Hocking County Health Department and CDC guidelines to address covid – 19 safety.
Our cooks prepare nutritious meals. All meals have a vegetarian option. Should your child have dietary restrictions we will accommodate them (gluten free, allergies, etc). Please include all dietary restriction in your registration and on your medical forms.
