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.

Wyandot Explorers Events December/January

On December 16th a group of Wyandot Explorers visited Heartland of Westerville to make crafts and do some caroling. We started out the afternoon creating unique jingle bell necklaces with beads and cut outs which we later gave to residents when we went around to sing. A variety of songs were sung including Frosty the Snowman, Winter Wonderland, Jingle Bells, Hanukkah Oh Hanukkah, and others. The residents enjoyed our time with them and were appreciative of the necklaces. Thanks to Alice Foeller, for organizing and leading this event!

Our next Wyandot Explorers event is coming up on January 20th. We will be meeting at COSI  at 1pm for an afternoon of exploration. This event is open to everyone! There is a registration fee of $10 per person (both youth and adult). If you would like to attend and have a COSI membership, no fee will be required but we ask that you register so we have an accurate count and don’t leave anyone behind! We hope to see you there!
