Camp Waluta 

A 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 10:1 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  referenced and background checked counselors. 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, skits & songs, nature/outdoor skills, arts & crafts, World Builders (STEM), Cooking, Health & Fitness, Gardening, Instructional & Free Swim*                                                       

*Camp Waluta's outdoor pool is watched over by two full time lifeguards and is supervised by the team of counselors from each group participating in Swim.  The pool measures 2 - 4.5 feet in depth, and is roped off according to swimmer's abilities.  All youth participate in swim lessons as a part of their daily schedule.  Swim lessons are considered a prerequisite to free swim periods in the afternoon.

Discovery Camp 

Camp Fire North Shore's summer program option for youth entering the fifth and sixth grade in the fall.  Youth participate in age appropriate team building activities including outdoor skills, service projects, and weekly field trips.
