A Summer Away From Our Home Away From Home

• 

Giving back to the place that has given us so much for more than half a decade felt empowering, especially this summer. Knowing that our signatures will be tucked away on the inside of our project forever and knowing that we are starting our legacy of giving back to camp in new ways means so much to us. This summer has been pretty lackluster for us otherwise, but returning to camp for a few hours filled us with the energy, lightheartedness, and happiness we had six years ago when we arrived there for our first summer, and that is a testament to how wonderful CW is. While walking through camp, we found ourselves reminiscing, talking about camp and smiling the whole time. Even though we all had to spend this summer away from our home away from home, we want the entire Camp Wise community to know that camp still feels like camp, and that giving back to camp helped remind us of how much it has impacted us in our lives.

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.

Read more about all of our exciting activities on our Activities page.

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.
