Camp Wydaca

2020 Summer Camp Information:  


The “CAMP LIFE” includes:

Traditional Camps:

The Camp Team is busy planning for Summer 2020 Camp Wydaca The Power of Kids. A typical day will offer a wide range of activities that encourage learning and creativity to meet the needs of every child while incorporating or weekly themes. Our plan is to have our Campers have a true "Outdoor Experience" and extra time for learning especially because of our current state. Campers participate in Instructional and Free Swim, exercise through Sports and Games, share experiences in Activity/Choice Time, and of course, take a break for Lunch. 

Specialty Camps:

Campers in our Specialty Camps participate in Free Swim, Instructional Swim, and Lunch, along with their specialty of choice. Campers improve their skills with an in depth look to become the best Artist, Performer, Chef, Scientist, or Athlete they can be! Impactful, adventurous field trips, on-site educational assemblies, and jam-packed Fun Fridays, help expand and round out the Camp Wydaca experience.
