Waunakee Up Down & All Around
Campers will experience a wide-range of activities during this adventure-filled week. We’ll will travel high up in the trees at Heightened Adventures Aerial Park and delve deep down underground at Eagle Cave. We’ll explore the beautiful natural areas all around Southern Wisconsin such as Ferry Bluff, the Mackenzie Center and Mirror Lake State Park.  

Waunakee Water Lovers
Does your camper love swimming, boating and fishing? If so, they are probably a water lover! During this water themed week, campers will paddle along local waterways such as Brittingham Bay, Lake Wingra and Devil’s Lake. From canoe to kayak, each day we will focus on a different aquatic activity and always make time for a swim. We’ll finish off our week with a splash at a Wisconsin Dells waterpark.

Wander Encore!
A summer of adventure often leaves us wanting more. Campers can join us for one last hurrah as we say ‘encore!’ to Wander.  Campers will hike at Governor Nelson State Park and build their self-esteem on the Kennedy ropes course. We will all be fascinated as we unveil mysteries at Ripley’s Believe It or Not and Wizard Quest! From the sky to the sea, campers will be amazed as we explore the Horwitz Deremer Planetarium and the Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium.
