Since 1982, our Explorer Program is still our pride and joy. Explorers live, eat and play in the out of doors for 5 days and 4 nights, which means they are able to accomplish some incredible things, both as individuals and as a group. After all…why should the fun stop at 4:00? Our Explorers program is no country club experience. Your young adventurer will sleep in a tent close to the earth and learn to cook with the group over an open fire. Each Explorer session has an exciting theme….It may be tough to choose just one!
Session 2: July 13th - 17th 2020
Perfect for our first time overnight campers. This program is designed to be supportive, challenging, and adventurous. Built around creating a respect for one another and the environment, kids are sure to dream big and come home proud, dirty, and full of stories to share.
Ropes & Rivers
Session 3: July 20th - 24th 2020
Alongside our standby activities like kayaking and hiking, the group will spend time together stream hiking, river snorkeling, and conquering our ropes course. Each day will be filled with new skills, locations, and memories. This overnight week is everything that summer camp should be, and a great opportunity for kids to make new friends and reach new levels of self-confidence.
Survival Skills & Adventure Race Week
Session 4: July 27th - 31st 2020

These adventurers will work together to follow clues and solve puzzles that will guide the day's events. They will be so busy having fun they won't realize how much that are learning! This week is where true outdoor skills are able to combine with excitement, play, and some friendly competition. Expecting this week to fill up fast!
Mystery Week - The final session of 2020 camp!
Session 6: August 10th - 14th 2020
We’d tell you more, but that would ruin the fun! Some say we save our best week for last, and that might be true! Our staff prepares unique adventures for this week, keeping even our most experienced campers feeling surprised, challenged, and excited. Our last week of the summer is always most special. Our annual fireside celebrations and closing ceremonies have made this week always the first to fill.

2-Week Leadership Program
This is where our program really starts to shift focus from being an active participant in the outdoor adventure world to being a focused, talented, and responsible leader. This two-week program (NOT weekends) was designed for kids who are looking to do more, know more, and share their knowledge (new and old) with others. Our most experienced staff will lead this group on daily adventures while showing and sharing with them the important different roles safety, responsibility, emergency preparation, self-confidence and leadership skills play in outdoor programming.

Leaders in Training (LIT) Program
Two Week Program: Sessions 2 & 3
Our leadership programs have grown to become the greatest source of pride for us here at WEU. These programs are thoughtfully designed with the goal of challenging your young leader to challenge themselves, grow as an individual and make a difference. Leaders will learn what it is like to take care of themselves, their peers and mentor younger groups in the out of doors. Communication, problem-solving, trust, cooperation, preparation and survival skills are just a few of the important goals we will be busy working towards. This is a two-week program with no weekends.

Advanced Leadership Week
For those who have attended our LIT or Leadership Quest program already and are looking to explore, challenge, and push their limits. This week is meant to foster the exploration of values, goal-setting, finding a leadership voice, and challenging the physical body. A large part of the week will be spent working with our younger day-camp group and nurturing their experience will offer your teen leader the self-confidence and pride they have perhaps been searching for.
Will be back again in 2021!
