A Brief History
Camp Wyandot, Inc. was founded as a Camp Fire Council in 1913. In 1928, the council became an Ohio nonprofit corporation and purchased Camp Wyandot in the Hocking Hills. As of April 30, 2013, Camp Wyandot, Inc. became an independent organization and is no longer affiliated with Camp Fire. Today, Camp Wyandot serves boys and girls with summer day and overnight camps and our Wyandot Explorers Club program.

Alumni Weekend Wrap Up 2016

We had another great turn out at Alumni Weekend down at Camp Wyandot! Close to 80 people attended the annual event this year! There was boating, crafts, swimming, hiking, archery, and more! As usual there was reminiscing and browsing through old photo albums and articles dating back to the 1920s when camp began!

Our beautiful Venetian sing was rained out, but we improvised and had a beautiful fire in the dining hall accompanied by over a dozen pretty camp songs and topped off with s’mores at the end of the evening!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for this special event!

Mark your calendars, Alumni Weekend 2017 will be:
Friday, August 18 – Sunday, August 20, 2017!
