11th Annual Camp Wyandot Luncheon

It’s that time of year again!
Our annual luncheon will be held Saturday, November 14, 2015
at Villa Milano Banquet & Conference Center.

Please come join us, and bring a friend!
We begin at 11am with a silent auction and memorabilia display.
Lunch and our program begin at Noon and end by 1pm.
We will then have another social hour and wrap up the silent auction.
The cost?  YOU decide! There is no set price to attend.

If after hearing about our programs you want to help us thrive and donate, we thank you.
If not, that’s okay too.
Reunite, share your memories and introduce yourself to the next generation of Camp Wyandot.


If you have any questions or would like to donate to the silent auction,

please contact the office at info@campwyandot.org or 614-481-8227

or Nikki Spretnak, nspretnak@gmail.com.

Donate to the Silent Auction!

On Saturday, November 14, 2015, we will be hosting our 11th Annual Camp Wyandot Luncheon!
One of the key elements of the Luncheon is our Silent Auction.
This consists of donations from Camp Wyandot members, friends, and local businesses
which we auction off to help raise money for the organization.

Items which always do well are handmade gifts (scarves, blankets, paintings, wreaths, etc…) and gift cards.
But the auction is not limited to these items.

Greetings From Connie (Luige)

I am honored to serve as your new Camp Wyandot, Inc. Acting Executive Director.  For the past 4 summers I have enjoyed being the Wyandot Overnight Camp Director. This is a return to Ohio where I grew up in Camp Fire and went to Camp Wyandot as a camper, CIT, staff member, camp director and council district director. Since leaving I have directed camps in 4 states and Malaysia, and served on the national staff of Camp Fire, USA and ACA. I have had the pleasure of teaching CD courses around the world for the International Camping Fellowship.  I truly appreciate the solid background Camp Wyandot gave me.

Now back home I am adapting to changes, reconnecting with old friends and making new young ones.  Likewise, Camp Wyandot has both an exciting future and some challenges to face. Your board has taken us through some difficult times and worked hard to position us to continue to serve the children and families in Central and Southern Ohio. We have Explorer Clubs to grow, day and overnight camp programs to strengthen.  There are more alumni to find and involve.  We have continued to operate a beautiful camp in the Hocking Hills without missing a season since 1928. The maintenance and upkeep of our camp is critical to the experiences we provide.  Today’s kids need these kinds of experiences more than ever.

As a new nonprofit our support systems are different but many of our needs are the same. Our greatest asset is and always has been people working together to pay forward quality experiences for the next generations.  Youth participants, volunteers, staff, alumni, board members and supporting members give their time, talents and dollars to make these experiences a reality. You should be receiving a post card this week inviting you to come and hear more at our Annual Camp Wyandot Luncheon on November 14th. In addition, check our website for other ways to keep up to date and be involved.

Play a part in impacting childrens’ lives and help create new Wyandot memories for everyone.  Whether you are just beginning your involvement with Camp Wyandot or been around for a while we have a niche for you. I look forward to working with you.
