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.

Everyone had the opportunity to make their very own Camp Wyandot terrarium, to take a piece of camp home with them! They also we able to cook their own lunches over a fire! Dinner was served in the Dining Hall and we wrapped up the evening with a Council Fire, complete with awards and skits, followed by S’mores and sing-a-long!

In addition to these projects work continued on Egypt and began on Khru. Earlier in the week the concrete floor was poured for Khru and Chuck, Sr. and his brother, Rick, cut the doorway for the new entrance. On Friday, Sandy Clapp, Terri Smith, Connie Coutellier, Karen Brooks, Jolyn Vita, Michele Carpenter, Sue Lavitchka, and Sharon Kellum – the crafty and skilled team of women who are responsible for the wonderful addition on Cook’s cabin – started work on the boys side addition. With the help of Chuck, Sr., they were able to get all the walls framed and finished, and the roof put on. This project will be complete by the end of May and will include 2 toilets, 2 urinals, and a new double sink. These additions will double the use for the boys side just in time for summer!

 

 

 

IMG_2247Construction continues on Egypt shower house. As of today the walls are completed, the porch is poured, and the IMG_2246roof is finished. Next step will be the inside! We are so excited about this project and are eager to see the finished results of Phase One by the beginning of June! If you are interested in contributing to this project in any way, please contact Connie Coutellier: connie@campwyandot.org.
 

 

We are so enthusiastic and appreciative of all the wonderful improvements happening at Camp Wyandot this year! It is so nice to see people coming together to help enrich the beauty and stability of this place we all love so much.

THANK YOU.

Kathleen Murphy: YWCA 2016 Women of Achievement Award Recipient

We congratulate Kathleen Murphy for being selected for the YWCA 2016 Women of Achievement  award.  In 2011 Kathleen’s company, MurhpyEspon, helped us develop a marketing plan for our camps and develop marketing tools, some of which we still use today.  The result of her efforts was a 19% increase in campers at both the overnight and day camps.  Kathleen supplemented the fee for her services with several thousands of dollars of services provided at no charge.  In 2012 Kathleen and Alice Foeller worked together to develop our website.

 

We appreciate all the good work and advice we received from Kathleen and agree that she is certainly a Woman of Achievement.
