Why Choose Camp Wekeela?
Camp Wekeela offers a safe, fun, nurturing environment in a scenic mountain lake setting. We are a family oriented program for boys and girls 7-16, led by on-site owners/directors Lori and Ephram Caflun with talented instructional specialists and counselors (staff/camper ratio is 1 to 2.5). Since 1997, Wekeela has been the Caflun’s summer home. Building community is what we do best here at Wekeela. Our campers extend these skills and values well beyond our shores.
Wekeela campers are from all over the United States - and the world. Wekeela is proud to have an incredibly diverse group of campers from 24 states and 18 countries! Each of them feels at home at Wekeela. Camp Wekeela provides children with the opportunity to connect with nature, to participate in humanpowered activities, and to benefit from personal and primary relationships. We continue to build a strong sense of community, leadership and tradition. To reach our goals, we believe that we do not merely serve campers, but we serve their families. We strive to be partners with our parents as we help their children grow and thrive. Nothing is more important to us than your children and their wellbeing.
