Camp Wyandot 2016 Annual Meeting
December 31, 2015


Wishing You A Happy New Year!


Fireworks don’t just happen on New Years. This picture is last summer’s 4th of July Celebration during Family Camp. Join us in 2016.



2016 proposes to be another exciting, successful year for Camp Wyandot, Inc. Join us at the annual meeting, help thank our retiring board members and meet the new ones.



The 2015 Annual November Luncheon was a success and our sincere thanks to all who joined us, helped and gave their support. It is a great time to renew friends, share memories and celebrate how we continue to impact the lives of children in our programs.  


Plans are underway for 2016 Camp Wyandot programs. Explorer Clubs are continuing their programs during the school year. Let us know if you are interested in starting a new club. Many of you have experienced the impact of this program. Our Day Camp program will be changing sites. Camp registrations will open in January. Watch for details on the Camp Wyandot Website.



imageThis fall has been a busy place at our overnight site in the Hocking Hills. Thanks to a grant from the
Harry Moore Foundation and a donation of labor from
JF Baker’s Sons Roofing Kiowa campers will have new roofs on the four treehouses and the kitchen unit.


With the addition of part of a grant by the Columbus Foundation Baker Roofing also completed new roofs on the Papoose and the Buck Cabins. The remainder of the Columbus Foundation grant will help us repair the pool deck and add a new 6ft fence this spring.



Thanks to donations from Sandy Clapp, her sister Jolyn Vita, Theresa Smith and labor from them and other friends and work weekenders the addition of two bedrooms, a new bathroom and a deck for the Cook’s cabin were completed. Our continued thanks to Chuck Jr and Senior for their help and expertise.


Last summer power outages not only gave us candle light dinners but caused concern about the possible loss of food and water. In 2016 two new generators will help provide continuous service and any candle light dinners will just be part of the program. The generators and a new freezer were funded out of Jeanene Dixon’s Trust Fund.


The beavers have temporally helped us with the hole in Lake Atagahi by packing mud and sticks in the hole. However, we are still looking for help in making a more permanent solution this spring.
