Community. Competence. Confidence.
LETTER FROM THE DIRECTORS
Welcome to Camp Wicosuta! The foundation of everything we do at camp is our 3 C’s: Confidence, Competence and Community! Our goal for every girl is to gain confidence in herself and competence in both activities and life skills, while being a part of a physically and emotionally safe environment. The combined and varied personalities and backgrounds of our campers and counselors creates a truly special camp community. We look forward to learning about your daughter’s interests and

Careful Cabin Consideration Fueling Our Bodies & Community
We create cabins of girls with similar interests, while mixing returning campers with our first-year campers. A 3:1 ratio of campers to counselors ensures that each child receives the care and attention she needs. By the end of the summer, girls with whom you share the beautiful

Health & Wellness Our health center team, which includes five nurses and a health center assistant, lives on-site. Our health center is open seven days a week, and a nurse is on call 24 hours a day. We partner with a local pediatrician who sees campers on an as-needed basis. Our nurses are sensitive to the physical and emotional well-being of our campers and deliver plenty of TLC! CAMP LIFE
Experts in Welcoming New Campers BIG/LITTLE SISTER PROGRAM We assign each new camper to a returning older camper who acts as a pen pal leading up to camp. Communication during the school year helps first-time campers quickly feel connected to their big sisters and a part of the Wico community!

FOR EVERY AGE
Programs & Activities A WELL-ROUNDED PROGRAM THAT GROWS! Our program is designed to enable each girl to feel successful and is based on her developmental needs. We emphasize instruction and participation in each activity area and challenge each camper based on her ability level.
EACH DAY IS NEW & DIFFERENT Our schedule is based on an 8-day cycle. Regular program days are designated as A, B or C days. After three days of a regular schedule, campers either participate in a special event day or go on an off-camp trip. This cycle repeats throughout the session. Our elective schedule encourages decision-making and independence, and most importantly, creates a culture where all of our girls participate. Girls choose the

Our Staff Sets Us Apart Wicosuta counselors are highly skilled, well-trained and enthusiastic. Our staff have strong backgrounds in working with children and in their activity areas.

WHY 4 WEEKS? Wico is long enough to settle in and enjoy all camp has to offer and still have precious time for family vacations, special interests and old-fashioned downtime.
TWO DISTINCT SESSIONS Our campers attend for one session which means they share the journey – beginning, middle and end – together. In this way, girls bond over their shared experiences. No one ever feels like they are leaving early or arriving late. Whether you select the first or second session, your daughter will receive a complete, traditional sleep-away camp experience.

HOW TO ENROLL
Schedule a Visit We strive to meet each first-time camper before she comes to camp. These visits, whether done on a camp tour, in the home, or virtually are the foundation of our relationship with each family! Go to campwicosuta.com/enroll and complete a camper application.
HOME VISITS We regularly meet families from September to May and appreciate the chance to spend quality time with you in the comfort of your own home. During these visits, we share photos of camp, answer questions, and get to know your daughter. Meeting face-to-face allows us to tailor our time together to meet the needs of your child. We schedule visits on weekdays afterschool or in the early evening.
VIRTUAL VISITS Sometimes, whether due to distance or schedules, it’s challenging to meet in person. In lieu of this, we often “meet” campers and parents over Facetime or Skype. We find these meetings especially effective for families who live overseas or are unavailable to meet in person.
TOURING CAMP Touring camp provides the best opportunity to feel the “Wico spirit”! Tours are led by our key leadership staff. Plan to take a walk around camp, meet with Corey and Justin and observe a slice of a typical camp day! Tours are offered at 10:15 AM and 2:15 PM while activities are in session and typically last 90 minutes.
Please call or email our office to set up your visit.

WICO EXPLORERS: TWO-WEEK SESSION
Wico Explorers: Two-Week Session Wico’s Two-Week Explorer Session is designed for first-time campers currently in Grades 1-4. Although many first-time campers come to Wico for a complete session, a Wico Explorer is a girl who prefers a shorter first-time camp experience.
THE EXPLORER EXPERIENCE • 5 traditional program days, so that girls may try a number of camp activities including swim instruction, waterfront, court and field sports, visual arts, performing arts and outdoor adventure • 2 Special Event Days • 1 day-long off-camp field trip • 3 days of intra-camp competition known as either Wico Challenge Cup or Color War
