About Camp Wamp
A magical place for learning and growth.
Camp Wamp Life!
Camp Wamp encourages teamwork, among campers with physical disabilities where they get to experience the great outdoors and create memories that last a lifetime.
Camp Wamp offers one-week camp sessions for campers of all ages with physical disabilities. Camp sessions are divided into the following categories: Ages 10-14, Ages 15-18, Adults Ages 19+, and Family Camp, which is designed for campers of all ages and their families. Stephen and Elizabeth Wampler are the Owners and founders. They are joined by their Camp Director, Annie Warner who has over 13 years of summer camp leadership experience.
At Camp Wamp children enjoy a sleep-away week of camping under the stars, and experience everything the outdoors has to offer. Campers enjoy a variety of outdoor activities including; fishing, canoeing, singing around the camp fire, hiking, making new friends, participating in survival challenges, and much more.
All Camp Wamp sessions with campers ages (10-18) offer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) experiences. STEAM will be introduced in an outdoor classroom setting where professionals introduce STEAM throughout the week at camp. STEAM is geared towards problem solving specific to the disabilities of each child. We are thrilled to offer this unique experience to our campers.
Camp Wamp's survival challenges encourage teamwork, self education, and fosters goal setting. We believe being a part of a team is one way to enjoy adventures that the wilderness of the High Sierra’s has to offer. Nature is our living classroom, and the more children are exposed to elements, the more they tend to appreciate the natural environment.
Many years ago, the children of Camp Wamp named themselves Wampers. It is great fun for them to have a name of their own, and to be a part of an important club. When you come to camp, you become a Wamper for life!
