Welcome Back to School from UW-Madison
The Good Times Rolled.. Our fourth summer of camp took place in Campbellsport, Wis., at Camp Matawa August 18-24, 2013. Campers and counselors enjoyed the week filled with board game themed activities. We watched a magic show, used clues to find Karl the caterpillar, competed in a colorful game of Capture the Flag and even spotted Coco, the gorilla! We were so excited to welcome our teens back for our second year of teen camp. They successfully hosted another fabulous talent show, and we had a ceremony for our four CK graduates. We look forward to having the graduates back next year as our first Counselors in Training (CIT: for ages 16-18)! CKUW 2013 was another successful week of camp and by far our biggest camp to date. We cannot wait for next year!!
