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.

Update from the Board of Directors: August 2017

Update from the Board

 

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer! There has been a lot going on with Camp Wyandot, Inc. and hopefully you have had an opportunity to be part of it. If not, there is still time, Alumni Weekend is just around the corner and there is still time to register. Over the past year the Board has been working on strategic planning and we would like your input as we move forward. First, our mission has not changed:

“Camp Wyandot provides an inclusive, nurturing environment for youth to have fun, make friends, serve others, and explore the great outdoors.”

 Second, as part of this process, the Board has established a vision statement.  It is our vision that Camp Wyandot is:

 Providing transformative experiences by connecting youth with the natural world in a rustic group environment.”

Third, we have established our core values.  At Camp Wyandot we value: quality experiences; the natural world; inclusiveness; positive youth development; integrity; service; responsibility; sustainability; our past, present, and future.

Finally, we have identified three pillars to focus on for long-term planning.  These pillars for future planning include Financial (stability); Programming (resident and day camps and club programs) and Organizational (staff, volunteers, members and alumni).  As part of programming we are looking for your input on the future of the club program and are holding a discussion session on August 16 at 6:30 at Columbus Metropolitan Library, Northside branch. This is your opportunity to provide input on what you would like the year-round group programming to look like for Camp Wyandot. Hope to see you there.

Memories of Camp Wyandot Brick Campaign

Memories of Camp Wyandot Brick Campaign

Add to your special memories of Camp Wyandot by purchasing an inscribed brick to create a lasting memorial of your commitment to Camp Wyandot. These bricks will be installed – combined with flagstone – creating a path between the bottom of the steps towards Hoskins and the parking lot.  We will be taking orders indefinitely, but plan to start creating the path late this summer, we then will add to it as later orders accumulate. The sooner you place your order, the sooner you will be able to see it along the path!

Camp Otonwe 2017

Camp Wyandot, Inc is excited to announce the return of Camp Otonwe to the Central Ohio area!!! We will be having 5 sessions of Day Camp at John Beltz Retreat Center just East of the Hoover Dam in the Westerville area. We are so thrilled to have found this beautiful location that pairs so well with  our Camp Wyandot in the Hocking Hills.

While all the program details are still being finalized, we can tell you our Day Camp program will go back to its nature and outdoor skills roots. We will have creeking, hiking, nature exploration, arts & crafts, games, and more with an optional overnight every Thursday. The overnight will include cooking several meals over a fire and sleeping outside under the stars!

We are also planning to bring back our Weal program for older campers going into grades 7-10. The weal program teaches leadership, outdoor skills, and teamwork to young teens who then have the opportunity to assist counselors with younger campers throughout the week. We are very excited to bring this program back to life!

We are currently hiring for Camp Otonwe, check here for more details!

Camp Otonwe registration is now open!!!
