Program Descriptions

When registering, there are three different programs that were designed to fit your unique family needs for you to choose from.

Program 1: Oaks

This program will give campers a chance to do all of the signature Camp activities they know and love while also doing new and exciting games, activities and crafts – the possibilities are endless! Campers in this program will also have the opportunity to go on fun field trips with their friends and counselors. This will run all summer starting May 22, 2023 and ending August 11, 2023.

Save $1,000 compared to our regular per-day pricing, when you sign-up for the Oaks program. This program was priced and designed with families in mind as we accommodated for vacation-time and other activities. Upon registration, an $100 deposit is required and the full summer cost is $2,300.

Camper Supervision

All Camp Wartburg’s staff are background checked and complete an intensive two-week training program. They are supervised by the Camp Manager.
