A Summer Camp for Girls!
Where alums feel as if they never left...
Although the faces at Wa-Klo constantly change, the traditions that built Wa-Klo still remain firm today. The same songs are sung during the opening and closing of Council Fire, the Sunday night Reflection service still begins with “Here We Are,” Christmas/Hanukah is still celebrated in August, the counselors present Final Council Fire and Reflections, flag lowering and raising happens daily, and the tribe chiefs design and conduct the famous song and tribe formations for Parents’ Weekend. The list is long of the traditions that remain unchanged. Of course, as the times change Wa-Klo keeps pace. Wool sweaters are now sweatshirts, saddle oxfords are now sneakers, bathing caps are long gone, and the wooden pool floats on large, metal barrels have also met their fate.
Since 1938, Camp Wa-Klo has all the same offerings a big camp has, but true to Miss Kloberg’s wishes, the camp population still remains small in order to know every girl that enters Wa-Klo gates. “Our Little Corner of the World” is still a safe and loving place full of special and very nice girls. Miss Kloberg’s favorite poem, “Fit to Know Yourself,” is often recited and the poem’s sentiments are seen through each Wa-Klo girl today.
We encourage alums to visit during the summer and see Wa-Klo. Just drop by the office, make introductions, walk along the paths, and allow the memories of yesterday and the newness of today fill you up.
Join our Wa-Klumni group by emaiing contact details, and we'll put you on our mailing list, so that you can be kept up-to-date with all that's happening.
The memory page is dedicated to all of those old memories from camps past. Just fill in the 'Record a Memory' form and follow the directions to sending it in. We love hearing all the stories of Wa-Klo and the gifts that Wa-Klo offered you when you least expected it. We love all of our alums and we truly look forward to hearing from you.
