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.

2018 Campership Needs

Every summer we offer a number of camperships to various families who need a bit of assistance in sending their children to Camp Wyandot. These camperships allow children who may not otherwise be able to attend summer camp to have memorable and educational experiences through our programs. Camperships come from a variety of grants and donations both from businesses and Alumni.

Due to unexpected costs and fewer grant opportunities, we are running low on campership funds for the summer of 2018. We have had a large number of requests for campership applications, more than in recent years. We would love to be able to award camperships to as many families as possible, so we are asking for your help.

If you, or anyone you know, is able to donate to our campership fund, it would be greatly appreciated. Our campership awards range from $104 all the way up to $409.50 depending on income and program requested. Any donation amount would be helpful.

Donations can be made online here or mailed/dropped off at our office: 1890 Northwest Blvd, Ste. 130, Columbus, OH 43212

As always, thank you for your generosity! Because of you all we are headed toward our 90th consecutive summer of programming at Camp Wyandot!
