An Ideal Place to Begin the Camping Experience!
Play cards on a bunk bed, draw a picture, rake a path, shoot some hoops, sail around the lake, and do it all with the cutest faces in camp!
Girls who have completed the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades have an excellent first experience at a residential camp, because Wa-Klo provides a safe program full of fun activities, lots of friends, and new discoveries. We have found that the youngest campers dive into the camp environment very quickly. The magic of camp captures the spirit of the youth surprisingly fast.
Our youngest campers live in a great big house called Sleepy Hollow with one staff member for every 3-4 campers. The staff hired for the Juniors express a strong desire to work with the youngest campers. During the first week of camp, there are staff members in charge of making sure that all the young campers get to the correct class with the proper equipment and clothes, there is a unit leader that looks after everyone in the house, and all the counselors and kids in Sleepy Hollow develop an incredible family like bond. The juniors participate in everything the camp does, and each junior camper gets to choose her own schedule.
Although, we encourage a 3, 4, or even 7 week commitment for Juniors, we understand that the 1st time away from home may be more comfortable for a shorter 2-week period. The Junior Program at Wa-Klo truly is a wonderful way to introduce a young girl to the benefits of summer camping.
