Wayfarer’s strong camp community and traditions allow each boy or girl to gain independence within a healthy, active program. Each day offers a variety of programs supporting skills development and decision-making that build self-confidence.

Surrounded by friends and a solid staff, every camper learns to ‘stretch’…physically, socially, emotionally and mentally. Self-assured in these new skills, campers come away with increased capabilities and new found independence for this ever-changing world.

…to make our actions and words always pleasing to God. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is the motto we live by in our boys’ and girls’ camp. When recruiting staff we seek strong, Christian individuals who feel they can contribute to this community built on faith.

While we are a non-denominational, Christian based camp, we focus on values important to all faiths. Many of you have noticed Wayfarer’s logo is the compass. This symbol reminds us to keep our compass bearing on God’s will, so that He may provide guidance and direction in our lives.
