Wavus Camp for Girls develops leaders who have a strong sense of self and possess the strength of character necessary to meet the challenges of the world in which they live. Our loving and experienced staff, many of them previous Wavus campers themselves, helps the girls of Wavus gain confidence while forming lasting friendships. We are a classic residential and wilderness tripping summer camp program that offers a wide variety of engaging experiences that shape, stretch, educate and enchant girls ages 8-16. Wavus is the sister camp to Camp Kieve for Boys.
Adventure! Since “life is either a daring adventure or nothing,” (Helen Keller), our campers return year after year to test themselves and to bond with their cabin mates through our integrated Wilderness Tripping adventures. Each girl discovers that there is more grit and grace in herself than she could have imagined prior to the journey.
Camp is also about play! In camp, where our younger campers spend many of their days, the counselors share the joy of paddling kayaks, the pleasure of pottery, the exhilaration of the ropes course, the silliness of sock puppets, the intensity of Zumba, the relaxation of yoga and sometimes the zaniness of the bouncy house! Visit our Daily Program & Activities page to learn more.
Our Introductory Program is for girls currently enrolled in grades 2 through 4 who, along with their parents, feel a 10-day session would suit them better than the full 26 day program. This Junior Wavus session, available in the middle of each full session, helps young girls gain the confidence to be away from home.To Discover more about us, or to meet the camp director Kirstie Truluck, see our Reunion & Slideshow Schedule or contact us at 207-549-5719.
