4 TOP REASONS WHY WA-KLO IS THE BEST CAMP FOR GIRLS IN NEW ENGLAND!!!
- We are both OPEN-MINDED and OPEN-HEARTED
- We are both DOWN-TO-EARTH and DIVERSE
- We are both UNPLUGGED and STRESS-FREE
- We provide COUNTLESS CONNECTIONS and ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES
Most girls start Wa-Klo knowing no one; they want a new and fresh experience and trust that they will make great friends once they get to camp. Because most returning campers start alone and somewhat vulnerable, each knows the importance of providing a warm and welcoming spirit to all of the new campers no matter what age they begin. Within 2 days of the start of camp, many times it is impossible to discern who is new and who began camp 8 years ago, because a family is formed almost instantaneously.
Camp Wa-Klo’s environment is comfortable yet rustic. All buildings are nestled within the trees allowing camp to merge with its natural surroundings seamlessly. Wa-Klo’s facilities are 5-star, and many visitors describe camp as “sweet” and “close knit.” Campers come to Wa-Klo from all over the world representing a multitude of different cultures, religions, languages, backgrounds, upbringings; all travel to this “little corner of the world” to create a lifetime in a summer. Everyone coming together, getting along, respecting and loving each other, truly sets an example for the world to follow.
In a world where constant contact and 24-hour news cycles are status quo, camp provides a sanctuary to unplug, slow-down, take a breath, and enjoy each other. Cell phones and electronic devices are not allowed, and kids realize that they are happier without them. Uniforms are cool at Wa-Klo, and the all-girl environment gives girls a chance to just be girls. Uniforms and the single-gender environment, take away a few social stresses that most girls experience during the year.
Camp Wa-Klo develops a girl’s connection with the community, environment, and within herself. We are a terrific balance of improving skills in a multitude of different areas yet not being too competitive. The girls celebrate effort and personal achievement; sportsmanship builds a strong community. Wa-Klo provides an emotionally safe place for campers to take risks in activities, which builds a girl’s confidence and enables her to be more courageous out in the world. We have over 30 activity choices; with a different program happening every evening and special event days varying from year to year, the magical spark to the summer never stops glowing.
These four attributes are just a few of the many reasons to send your daughter to Camp Wa-Klo. We have a stellar reputation, a creative spark, and supportive staff members that make Wa-Klo stand tall above all!!
