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

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 • We offer transportation to camp (included in tuition) from Boston, NYC, • 5 traditional program days, so that girls may try a number of camp activities

Westchester County, NY, Connecticut, and Boston Logan and Manchester Regional Airports.

including swim instruction, waterfront, court and field sports, visual arts, performing arts and outdoor adventure

• Our last day of camp, Visiting/Departure Day, allows parents to enjoy a day of camp prior to taking their daughter home. For those who prefer, we also offer camp transportation home.
