Summer Camp

Summer Camp




Located near Wagoner, Oklahoma, Camp Waluhili's 219 acres include almost three miles of shoreline on Fort Gibson Lake, a bluff line, forests, and meadows. Campers and staff share semi-rustic, air-conditioned cabins with electricity and a restroom with shower houses nearby. Throughout the week campers will gain knowledge about the outdoors, explore new activities, make new friends, and, most importantly, have fun. Camp Fire trains all camp staff members to include campers with all abilities and disabilities and hires one male and one female staff member specifically for children needing an individual buddy. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience camp!  Camp Waluhili is the ideal place for campers to learn new skills, make new friends, and discover who they are.

FAQ'S

What should my camper bring to camp?

-Our camper packing list  is a great resource when packing! We have found that when you and your camper pack together it increases their responsibility for their own belongings and helps them know exactly what they have at camp. It also prevents campers from bringing inappropriate or prohibited items to camp. Learn more about preparing for camp here!

 

What will my camper be doing all day?

-A typical day at camp begins around 7:30 AM. Campers and staff will eat breakfast together and then join their groups for the morning activities. Lunch is around 12. After lunch they will have rest hour and swim time followed by dinner and an all camp activity. Detailed schedule varies based on specialty session chosen.

 

Can my camper have their cell phone?

-No. To support our staff member’s efforts to build a camp community, we request parents and campers to leave cell phones and other electronic devices at home. If seen, camp staff collect them, turn them off, secure them in the camp office, and return the items to parents at check out. See the full explanation here.

 

How will I communicate with my camper throughout the week?

-Campers can receive mail and emails throughout the week. In case of emergency, parents and guardians are provided with appropriate phone numbers and contact information.

 

What are Kapers?

-Camp Waluhili emphasizes community responsibility to all campers and staff. Kapers, or chores, are done as a group to keep the cabin and community spaces clean.

 

What is your staff training?

Camp staff are background checked and trained in first aid, CPR, life guarding and across Camp Fire's youth development methodology. Additionally, all staff leading activities, such as pool time, rappelling, water front, archery, and shooting sports are trained and skill checked in their program areas. Camp Fire is accredited by the American Camp Association to meet national standards for health, safety, and program quality.

 

What is the Trading Post?

Campers will visit the Trading Post, or camp general store, everyday and are able to purchase one can of soda/snow cone and one package of candy/snack each day. The Trading Post also sells items such as t-shirts, sunglasses, water bottles and stuffed animals ranging in price from $2-$10.

Make New Friends

Campers participate in special sessions each morning and spend the afternoons and evenings with their cabin. Meals, pool time, and "all camp activities" provide your camper the opportunity to interact with other youth who are different ages, genders, and have different interests and backgrounds. There are endless opportunities to build new friendships with others while doing new things your camper loves. They are sure to create meaningful, lasting friendships while at camp!

Everyone is Welcome!

We believe every youth should have the opportunity to attend summer camp. There is no extra charge if your child is not currently a member of a Camp Fire Club. We also train all camp staff to include campers with special needs or disabilities and hire one male and one female staff member specifically for children needing an individual buddy. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to attend camp!

Work at Camp

Camp Fire Green Country is looking for fun and energetic people who are excited about working to provide a life changing summer for the leaders of the future. Camp Waluhili is a residential camp located in Eastern Oklahoma on 219 acres on Ft Gibson Lake. We focus our campers’ experiences on building friendships and leadership skills, self-confidence, an appreciation for the outdoors, and an awareness of community responsibility – all in an inclusive environment. Camp staff achieve this by promoting active learning within small groups while progressively challenging campers as they grow older and gain experience.
