Camp Wyandot is located on over 100 acres of prime nature. Expect hilly terrain and rustic facilities! Be prepared to walk to the cabin and carry whatever you bring with you to camp. Our facilities are considered rustic, which is a step above primitive and below modern. Although a few cabins have electricity and plumbing, camper cabins do not. Bathroom and shower facilities are within walking distance of all cabins.
Camp is located in a valley running North to South divided by Lake Atagahi. On the West side of the lake is Cabin Row and our health center. On the East side are our Advanced Units and the Dining Hall.
Cabin Row is made up of 12 rustic cabins along the banks of Lake Atagahi and on the hill above it. Cabins are open-windowed with screens and have 8 beds. There is a small back room for luggage and changing. Campers have nearby access to our recently renovated Egypt Showerhouse. Our Health Center is also on Cabin Row, along with access to our pool and the Staff Lodge.
The Welcome Center is one of our newer structures, and serves as the registration and program area, and is home to our camp store. It is located in The Flats, across from the Woodsmoke Opening Campfire Ring.
Older campers stay on Advanced Hill. Shawnee is for counselors in training, and Sioux, Kiowa and Seneca are for older campers. All of these units are cabin-tents, or “Tebins.” These cabins do not have electricity or plumbing, but share a community shelter with electricity and Alps is the modern bathhouse, with electricity and water. Kiowa is our treehouse unit, made up of 4 small treehouses and a shelter with no electricity.
As you come into camp on our driveway next to Clear Creek, you arrive at The Flats – the only flat place in our camp of Hemlock – treed hills. Upon arrival and departure it is a parking lot. The rest of the week the archery program, Gaga Pit, basketball, tether-ball, other team games and evening programs that are shared by the entire camp, happen in that area.
Our Dining Hall is a beautifully spacious log lodge with a modern kitchen, maintaining all state and local codes. It is the beloved hub of summer camp. The Dining Hall also houses the open and airy Craft Room. All meals are prepared and served in the Dining Hall aside from some lunch hikes and cookouts. It also serves as a shelter for rainy day activities and various evening programs.
Aquatics has two focus areas in camp. Beautiful Lake Atagahi is the center of boating, fishing, and nature study. Meanwhile, the pool area provides water play, swimming, and quick cool-off activities in the summer!
