Camp Wantago

STEP FORWARD! With field trips twice per week, fun activities, games, time for learning and building friendships, these 10 weeks are filled with excitement! Every week has a new and exciting theme. Our emphasis on S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities ensure that children stay sharp and keep learning all summer long. Campers also head over to the Family Center twice per week* for instructional swim lessons supervised by trained and certified lifeguards.

*There is no instructional swim during weeks 9 &10 due to annual pool maintenance. Other activities are substituted.
