2015 Camp Registrations are Strong!

With 2015 camp season fast approaching, our Day Camp and Overnight Camp registration numbers are strong – 400 registrations for Day Camp, and 416 for Overnight Camp!

We still have open slots in some of the sessions for both camps, so we urge you to register soon in order to claim your preferred week(s) to attend. Parents should know that every Camp employee is background checked through the BCI records database. Every staff member who interacts with your child has successfully completed this background check. Further, our camps are operated within ACA (American Camp Association) standards and by experienced staff who love kids and work very hard to help them learn essential skills in order to appreciate and have fun in the natural world.

The Big Give Was Great for Camp Wyandot!

The preliminary results from the May 12 Columbus Foundation Big Give are in! During the designated 24

hour period, you responded by giving $15,856.98 to Camp Wyandot, a near-21% increase over the 2013


Thank you!

Your generosity will be very helpful in allowing us to continue to provide the high

quality camping experience that is the bedrock of our reputation to an ever increasing number of kids

each year. Your gifts and your ongoing commitment to the future of Camp Wyandot are greatly valued

and appreciated.

Spring Skills 2015

Spring Skills was held May 2-3 at Camp Wyandot. Wyandot Explorer Groups came down for a day of fun and activities including boating, archery, crafts, and more! One of the special projects everyone was able to participate in was the building of 12 new picnic tables for Camp Wyandot! Lisa Graham and her Explorer Club received a Kiwanis grant which was used to purchase these new tables! We send a SUPER THANK YOU to both Lisa’s club and the Kiwanis of Downtown!!!

We wrapped up the evening with a Council Fire, complete with awards and skits, followed by S’mores and sing-a-long!

Thanks to Ben Searfos (Arktos) for doing an amazing job hosting the event and thank you also to Mountain Smith (Fran), Teri Schaefer (Skittles), Reese Farrow (Pieces), Mackenzie Crenshaw (Doo Wop), and everyone who helped make this event work!

See you all next year!

Summer Camp Season is happening soon, and there are several items we still need!

Your gift helps us control the expenses of operating Camp, which keeps our costs competitive. Please contact our Camp Director, Connie Coutellier, at ccoutellier@gmail.com and let her know what you would like to purchase or donate.

Camp Wyandot is a 501(c)(3) organization. We can help you make 100% of your donation go to Camp Wyandot (by avoiding sales tax), and you may list the cost of your donation item as a charitable deduction when you file your tax return.
