TOP 7 REASONS TO CHOOSE CAMP WICOSUTA... AND WHY THEY ARE SO IMPORTANT!
The 4-Week Camp Experience
Long enough to settle in and enjoy all camp has to offer and still have precious summer time for family vacations, special interests
and old-fashioned downtime!
Two Distinct Sessions
Having our campers attend for one session means our campers share the journey beginning, middle and end together. No one ever
feels like they are leaving early or arriving late. Whether you select the first or second session, your daughter will receive a complete,
traditional sleep-away camp experience.
3 C's - Confidence, Competence, Community
Our 3 C's philosophy is a part of everything we do. Our goal for every girl is to gain confidence in herself and competence in a
variety of skills, while being a part of a physically and emotionally safe community. All of this is accomplished in an energetic,
positive atmosphere charged with Wico Spirit!
The elective schedule encourages decision-making and independence, and most importantly, creates a culture where all of our girls
participate. Girls choose the activities they like, so they can't wait to get started! Wico is filled with happy, active girls!
While we want our youngest campers to get a taste of everything we offer, even they get to choose one elective period a day as
they start to develop personal tastes and interests.
The Wico Social & Emotional Toolkit
We have developed a series of tools I-Messages, Bunk Contracts, Assigned Dining Hall Seating, Weekly Questionnaires
that give our girls outlets for communication, conflict resolution, and connectedness. Each camper feels her voice is heard and
that she is an integral part of a strong community.
Pressure-Free All Girls Environment
At Wico, the uniform/dress code eliminates peer pressure to wear certain clothes or dress a certain way. We go one step further
with a one-piece bathing suit policy to avoid pre-occupation with body image. Our sisterly atmosphere promotes camaraderie not
Our staff sets us apart. Highly skilled, well-trained and enthusiastic, we have a high percentage of returning staff each year.
Additionally, we look for new staff with strong backgrounds/interest in working with children and in their activity area. We
have a series of staff orientations to train counselors prior to the campers' arrival and continue training throughout the summer.
