Specialty Camps

SOME CHANGES MAY BE MADE TO PROGRAMS DUE TO COVID - CLICK HERE FOR MOST RECENT UPDATES

Day Camp Programs for ages 10-14

Your camper might want a new challenge without missing his or her favorite Wabansi traditions.  Specialty camps are made for your child. Our specially trained staff offer adventures and excursions during the week that allow campers to try something new while also being able to spend time at the camp they love so much.  It's the best of both worlds!


 

Survivor Camp

We never vote your child off the island, but they might feel like they are on a special island. Your tribe will be challenged with many outdoor skills including fire-building, basic first-aid, raft-building, and making shelters. They will create some awesome meals over the fire and, if they choose to stay overnight on Thursday, their tribe and counselors will camp out in Wabansi's famous "Yabwe" campsite and experience a special tribal council ceremony.  Don't miss out on this camp tradition - stay overnight!

Do not hesitate to come twice!  Survivor camp changes each session based on our counselors' specialized knowledge and campers' unique interests.  Campers came twice last year because it was totally different and crazy cool.

Typical Week Schedule:

On Monday we meet our tribe and the counselors that will lead us through challenges and adventures all week.  Every day we learn something new!  It feels like we're on our own island because we get to spend a lot of time at Wabansi's "Yabwe" campsite, learning outdoor living skills and doing team-building activities with our tribe members.  At the Thursday overnight we get to camp out and we have a special tiki-lit Tribal Council where we talk about how well our new friends showed the core values of Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Caring throughout the week.  At the end of the week we go home with new skills and new friends.  Everybody wins at this Survivor!

 Finale Friday

Friends and family are invited to Camp Wabansi on Friday afternoon for our Friday Finale closing campfire. Join us for hilarious skits and songs, and camper recognition! Guests may begin arriving at camp and check in at the camp office anytime after 2:00 pm.  (Please do not plan to arrive earlier than 2:00 pm.) The campfire will begin at 2:15 pm. Camp Wabansi has several benches in the amphitheater, but parents are also encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets for seating. An ice cream treat will be provided after the campfire for all campers and guests.  If parents do attend the campfire, plan on taking your camper home at 3:45 pm on that Friday afternoon.  If parents do not attend, then your camper will be sent home on the bus as usual and arrive for pick-up at their pre-arranged location at the usual pick-up time. 

IMPORTANT:

  • There will be before and after care offered at the West Side YMCA for a small additional fee.
