“The best part of Camp Shiwaka is that we have fun, we learn, and we get to be with all the other groups,” “we do archery, building things, and cooking.” “The best part is spending the night in camp,” “taking care of the plants,” “working together,” “being with friends and looking at nature, listening to mother nature's natural sounds,” “building and tending fires,” “cooking over the fire,” and “sleeping under the stars.” These are just a few of the comments from last summer's Shiwaka campers.

Shiwaka offers a wide variety of traditional camp opportunities including a low-element challenge course, an archery range, fire rings for outdoor cooking, and an outdoor amphitheater for the end of week closing ceremony. Craft activities are geared toward the camp theme. Campers earn a variety of nature awards as they learn to value the natural environment.

Each day opens and closes at the flagpole with spirited sessions of camp songs and camp capers, letters delivered from “Mr. Wriggles,” (the friendly camp “snake” and mascot) and announcements.

Campers grow close during a week with their counselors and the high school volunteers who serve as their Day Camp Aides.
