The Meaning of Camp: A Staff Perspective

Each day, I am able to foster a cabin and larger community in which I get to see people fall in love with something I love so much (camp!). While the magic of Camp Wise is hard to make tangible, it surely exists and everyone who drives through the gates will soon feel it too.

Our Family’s Home of Happiness

The impact that camp has had on Liza is beyond words. She is trying new things without much fear. Her confidence has grown. My quiet, keep-to-herself, beats-to-her-own-drum daughter is now a JV Basketball cheerleader for her high school. I still do not believe my eyes when I watch her cheer.
I cannot help but thank Camp Wise for the transformation that Liza has made. She is ready for her Solel experience and cannot wait to see what the summer will bring.

Teach Your Children Well

Only a few months into my son’s first year of preschool, I heard him singing at the table as he ate his snack. It didn’t surprise me, my kid LOVES to sing (thank you, musician husband). It also didn’t surprise me that, at first, I couldn’t quite place (read: understand) what he was singing; he wasn’t even 2 years old at the time. But as I made my way back to the table, what I thought was just gibberish became clearer to me.

Check Out Our Winter Programs

This is just about the time of year when we are all missing those warm summer days at camp, but there’s no need to fear! With the cold and snowy weather, it is the perfect opportunity to participate in our Winter Weekend programs at Camp Wise. These programs are for current camp families with campers in grades 5-8, and for any age-eligible children that are interested in coming to Camp Wise for the first time this summer!

In The Words of our Campers…

When you’re at Camp Wise, you’re ALWAYS happy! I think that’s because you’re always doing something you love at camp. Even though sometimes people get homesick, the AMAZING counselors always help you feel good.
