Each week begins with check in from 2-4 pm on Sunday afternoon. Parents should plan on the check in process taking about one hour from start to finish.
Pick up at the end of the week is between 2-4 pm on Friday.
Campers are placed into cabin groups by grade level. Cabin mate requests are honored whenever possible, taking into account camper age.
We will be posting photos from each day on the Camp Wakonda Facebook page as time permits.

Camp Wakonda is partnering with Pack For Camp, a national vendor who can help you shop for camp right from your computer. They have matched our packing list with items for you to choose. Camp Wakonda will receive a portion of the proceeds from each order to support Financial Assistance for our campers.
For your reference, our Parent Handbook is available any time. You can also pay any portion of your camp balance here.
Mail and E-Mail to Campers
Please allow five business days for mail to reach camp. Campers LOVE to receive mail! Please write to your child at least once before their camp session begins. This will ensure the camper will receive at least one letter from home while at camp. We deliver mail each day. Make sure your letters are cheerful and enthusiastic, while focusing on camp events and involvement – not what is happening back home. This will help to prevent homesickness. Parents can drop off mail during check in to ensure your camper receives a letter right away.
