Camp Wyandot Activities
Camp Wyandot is an exciting adventure! Photos of the facilities are on the website, by clicking on “Wyandot Facilities” on the white bar at the top of the page. Camp Wyandot experience is magical! Part of that experience is the partnership we form with our camp families and the support of parents and guardians to help us build caring, confident young people that appreciate our natural world. Campers will master new skills, try new things, and develop great friendships. Camp Wyandot campers live with their counselor in small units or cabin groups of 6 or 7, based on their age. The unit cooperates to plan their upcoming week together. Find more about the activities in the pictures below.

Camp Wyandot Outdoor Living Skills Progression Program (OLS) is designed to help campers be more confident and comfortable in the outdoors. The outdoors can be a safe environment and an adventure where campers can be doers rather than viewers. As they progress through each of the five levels they build outdoor skills and learn to work as a group.
Campers get a glimpse into the ins-and-outs of running. Campers meet in the parking area and learn proper runners stretches before running, jogging, or walking to the entrance gate of Camp and back. Campers who complete Morning Mile twice during a session will receive a patch at the end of the week. No Sweat!
This program addresses areas including sensory awareness games, camp improvement projects and activities involving the ecology and ecosystems, weather, camouflage, mammals, flowers & plants, birds, reptiles, insects, geology, trees, and more. At the end of the week every cabin will have completed requirements for their chosen level of progression and will be awarded accordingly.
Cabin units wake up early in the morning and go for a quick jump in the pool when the water is warmer than the air. This activity is supervised by licensed lifeguards and is a great way to wake up and start the day! Campers who complete Polar Bear twice in one session will be awarded a patch at the end of the week. Chomp! Chomp!
Every morning while campers are enjoying their breakfast, members of the Leadership Team visit all the cabins and inspect them for cleanliness & organization. The Golden Dustpan award is given to a Cabin Row cabin & an Advanced Hill unit every morning. The Golden Dustpan patch is awarded at Council Fire to the cabin and unit who showed the most consistency throughout the week.
