Camp Waluta is our traditional Summer Camp program that serves school-age youth, age five - entering 4th grade.  This program is designed to provide opportunities for campers to explore safe and fun outdoor camp activities, all under the guidance of qualified specialists and counselors in a low  5:1 camper to staff ratio.

Children in Camp Waluta are placed into groups with children of the same age for each session.  Each group is led by a team of  reference and background checked counselors including two Senior Counselors and a C.I.T.  Our low camper to staff ratio gives each child the individual attention they need to make friends, participate in new activities and have fun, while still allowing room for self-expression.  Campers will stay with their group for the duration of the week and rotate throughout the specialty activity areas on a daily basis with their group. Activity areas are instructed by our college-aged staff, many of whom are currently pursuing degrees in Education or related fields. Specialists are assigned to an activity area and focus their planning to coordinate with weekly themes. 

                                                   Activity areas include:

                                                                                               Sports & Team Building
