Camp Wigwam - A Summer Fun Boys Camp
The Wigwam summer camp experience is a very personal one with only four boys and one counselor in each cabin. One seven week program begins in late June and runs through the middle of August, with a four week option within that time frame. With a high percentage of returning staff, experienced administrative personnel and the involved ownership of the Strauss family, Camp Wigwam fosters individual, physical and emotional growth in a less competitive atmosphere, guiding each camper to live and learn within a community of his peers.
A Typical Day at Camp Wigwam
Each day spent at Wigwam is different. However, to give you an idea, a typical day in the life of a camper at Wigwam might look like this. Playing basketball, soccer, going for a sail with a friend, fencing, tennis match, a morning at the driving range or an afternoon at one of our local golf courses, waterskiing or exploring their more creative side in ceramics, arts and crafts, sewing or rocketry.
