“This was our child’s first overnight camp experience, and it was really excellent. Her cabin auntie really worked to foster a sense of unity and acceptance, and the activities planned by the camp seemed really enriching and fun. We plan to send her again!”- Grade 6 Parent
As part of our core values, we want campers to connect as friends who feel like family. Our goal is to build a community of campers, counselors and volunteers who experience camp together and in turn learn from and appreciate each other.
In an overnight format, campers gain independence through making their own choices, working together with others to problem solve, taking responsibility for themselves and their belongings, and challenging themselves to learn new things.
Cabins consist of kids of the same gender/age range, with an adult volunteer providing oversight. Each cabin has its own bathroom and sleeps 8-12 kids in bunk beds. Linens, sleeping bags, blankets and towels need to be brought by campers.
Everyone eats together inside our dining hall or outside on the balcony & picnic areas. Buffet-style meals are served three times a day, and grab & go options are available for snacks throughout the day.
IFNet volunteers work with Camp Wicosuta’s kitchen staff to inspire vegetarian and non-vegetarian menu choices, a variety of cuisines (including Indian), and safe options for those with food allergies. Milk, cookies & fruit are always served before bedtime!
