Wavus Camp for Girls is a residential and wilderness tripping summer camp program for 8-16 year olds. Through our fun, adventurous, non-competitive environment, we develop leaders who have a strong sense of self, and possess the strength of character necessary to meet the challenges of the world they live in. Our incredibly caring and experienced staff helps campers gain confidence while forming lasting friendships with peers from diverse backgrounds. Wavus is a sister camp to Kieve Camp for Boys.

2nd to 4th grade girls coming to the Wavus Camp for Girls for the first time have the option of attending a 10–day Introductory session if they and their parents feel this would suit them better than the full 3–week program.
