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.

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!!!
