Welcome to the original “self-directed” summer camp experience! Camp WOW, now in its 22nd year, is called a World of Wonder because it is the place where Kids RULE – and on the first day of each week, campers make the “rules” for the week! No strict schedule to follow and tons of activities to choose from throughout the 3 acre secure facility!
