W.E.U. has been running summer camp since 1982 and we are still proud to offer brand new programs, activities, and locations. Whether your child is 6 years old or 16 years old…expect them to be challenged, have fun, make memories and be proud of their accomplishments!
Each summer, Wilderness Experiences Unlimited offers a variety of summer programs. In a small group format we provide a meaningful alternative to large impersonal summer camps. Activities are progressive beginning with Day Camp (ages 4-5, 6-7, 8-10, 11-13), the five-day Resident Camp (ages 10-14) or the Advanced Camp program for older campers (ages 12-17). For campers showing leadership potential, a Leaders in Training (ages 14-17) program offers an opportunity learn the challenges and responsibility of leadership! Hiking, climbing, kayaking, canoeing, caving, backpacking, survival and emergency preparedness are just a few of the skills that may be learned in our close-to-nature adventure programs.
About Our Camps
Wilderness Experiences Unlimited believes that summer should be a special time when all campers can appreciate themselves and their world! Utilizing the Out-of-Doors as the primary locale, W.E.U. provides exciting programs in a friendly, safe, and supportive environment. All programs incorporate the fundamental principles of recreation and education. Campers have the opportunity to develop their own skills and potential through individual and group challenges. Each camper is encouraged to respond to their challenges, feel good about themselves, and gain experience in personal decision making. Preservation and conservation are presented as a way of life.
Philosophy and Goals
Recognizing national and international problems related to the use and abuse of our natural resources, W.E.U. focuses on our New England “Wilderness” and the implications of responsible decision making by future citizens to protect the ecological balance.
We believe that all individuals have the right to:
Reach for their highest potential through out-of-door experiences
Learn to know the Wilderness as it relates to them
Ask questions and have them answered fairly and honestly
Accept defeat without “Failure” in a safe, supportive atmosphere
Feel the thrill of personal accomplishment
The most important part of our program is the placing of a child in a situation where they can help themselves to grow. That chance is what W.E.U. is all about!
