Wow, all that we can say is Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Camp Wapiti is now all wrapped up with our summer programming, and the weeks ahead will be full of reviewing and evaluating everything that happened this summer. But to say that this summer was a success would be putting it mildly.
To everyone who was a part of making this summer so special, Thank You.
If you have a favorite memory of the summer, send it in to us via our Facebook page, or else comment on it here on the website, and we’ll share it with the world!
Thanks for a great summer!
Sr High Camp was a blazing success! Thanks to all who made it a great experience for all, especially Beth Bellamy and her team of leaders, as well as our special guest speaker: Pastor Doug.
Jr High Camp 1 (including Horsemanship 1) starts wit Registration on Saturday July 10th @ 6pm
*note for Horsemanship Campers – your finish time on July 16th will be at 4pm, not 12 noon as it is for the regular camp.
This comment was submitted to us by one of our Campers from last year’s Jr High Camps. She’s obviously very excited about the summer and can’t wait to be back again!
“hahahaha this camp is the best one i’ve ever been to! i’m 12 and when i went to this camp i found friends, interesting fact about wildlife, God, and hahahhaa how to TRY to start a fire, and great leaders! in the craft shack i created lots of interesting items, such as my leaf collection, i also got to collect cool bugs and i got the special treatment of getting wrapped in plastic wrap! on about the 3rd day my friend and i were going on a long trail. it was a game kinda thing, but what we found was amazing! we found a large skull! we weren’t exactly sure of what kind it was but it was kool! when we showed the leaders they were like WOW! and put it on desplay in the mess hall! its there to this very day! and every group gets to try to make a “believable” story on what it was and how it died!, and that was only a fraction of an inch of what all happened there! but i cant ruin the surprise! hope i see ya there!”
We’re now 2 weeks away from the Summer 2010 Camping season. Come Join Us!!!
As we get ready for Summer 2010 and “Camp Wapiti Rocks”, we start to hear more and more questions from parents about that dreaded plague that inevitably visits every camp every season – “Homesickness”.
Camp can be a scary place for some children, especially if it’s their first time away from Mom and Dad. Our friends over at Charis Hills Camp have a great Blog Entry that we’ll point you too, showing some great tips on how parents can help their children overcome Homesickness.

As we get ready for the summer, we’re also getting ready for some of the projects that we will have going on out at the camp. One of those projects includes finishing the outside of our chimney with “river stones”.
As you make your way out to Camp Wapiti for a visit, or for your camp, feel free to help us by picking up a rounded stone from the old gravel pits. We’re looking for everything from a tennis-ball sized stone to a larger (6-7 inches maximum) melon sized stone. We’ll need lots, and if everyone brings one stone, we’ll have more than enough in no time.
This will be an exciting project that will happen while some of the campers are with us. We’re excited to share this experience with you as we explore together and meet with God in nature!
