A Letter to Our Parents

Dear Parents,

We are thrilled you are considering Camp Wayfarer and we look forward to sharing our camp family with your family.  As parents, we understand that your children are your most precious possessions and that great care must be taken in selecting the proper summer camp for them.

We consider ourselves one of the few remaining “mom and pop” summer camps. As a result of our size and key values, Wayfarer has been able to retain the spirit and intention set forth during our very first summer in 1991. We know all of our families by name, not by number, and we always cater to the individual needs of our campers. We’ve never forgotten why we’re in this business and we strive to show this through every aspect of our operation.

We gladly accept the responsibility of caring for your children and are committed to providing the best overnight camp experience possible.

Please do not hesitate to contact us through email or call our office at: 828.696.9000 with any questions. It is our priority during the school year to meet new Wayfarer families in person to answer any questions. If you would like to learn more about our camp, we would be happy to visit your home to share Wayfarer with your family! We understand the leap of faith it takes to send your child away to camp. We know the value of a summer camp experience and invite you and your child to join our Wayfarer family and tradition!
