The Value of our Staff-In-Training Summer

• 

SIT year was a phenomenal experience—it was truly life-changing. We had so many opportunities to bond with each other as well as campers and staff, and we lead activities that utilized our critical and creative thinking skills. Truth be told, more than we ever expected. The transition from camper to ILS to SIT might seem intimidating, but the SIT program was a perfect capstone to our past few years’ camp journey. We have all had counselors who significantly impacted us when we were campers, and to have the opportunity this summer to be that person for our campers was incredible.

Activities

Camp Wise offers an incredibly diverse range of programs that meet the desires of every camper.  From tubing and kayaking on our private lake, to learning to play guitar or creating your own podcast, to riding a horse or shooting a basketball kids are able to do the activities they know they love, and try things they never pictured themselves doing.

Camp Life

At Camp Wise, we understand that children of diverse age groups are at varying developmental stages and have different needs while at camp. Unlike many camps who then organize their cabins on a girls side and a boys side we intentionally group our cabins in distinct age-group “villages”.

Mission

Camp Wise provides a friendly, supportive, and cooperative atmosphere that fosters individual growth at each camper’s own pace. Campers are encouraged to learn new skills and master old ones, to make decisions, to take responsibility, to be expressive, to live with others, and to have fun. Complemented by our Jewish environment, campers develop a deeper understanding of and appreciation for Jewish heritage and traditions while also developing a true sense of community.  Camp Wise is committed to making sure that every camper leaves with a greater sense of self-esteem and self-confidence; and with memories that will last a lifetime.
