Family Camp Facilities at WeHaKee Camp for Girls
The facilities at WeHaKee Camp for Girls are exceptional. And, they are consistently well maintained for each participant’s comfort and safety. Take a moment to check out some of the highlights of our camp:
Our cabins are fully enclosed and spacious structures with space for up to 10 people. They are well lit and have excellent ventilation and are each equipped with a ceiling fan. They feature fully finished interiors with twin size beds.
Our shower houses are equipped with individual shower stalls (including a changing area) for each shower – you can shower and change in complete privacy. Each shower house is finished with pine paneling and skylights giving them a warm and welcoming atmosphere. And, they are professionally cleaned daily.
Built by legendary Notre Dame football coach, Knute Rockne in the 1920’s, the dining lodge (known as Sinsinawa Lodge) is a beautiful log hewn building that has been well maintained and preserved. The kitchen facilities have been completely modernized to provide professional food preparation and service. With an array of lakeside windows it provides a panoramic view overlooking Hunter Lake.
Another structure built by Knute Rockne, Lauerwood is a beautiful log hewn structure used as a multipurpose facility by our campers. With its hardwood floors and stage area, it is perfect for drama, dance, and gymnastics as well as performances and all-camp dances.
Although our waterfront on Hunter Lake provides for fun & comfortable swimming activities, our 40’ x 100’ heated pool provides space for competitive, synchronized or recreational swimming.
Participants begin in the barn, where they can groom and tack each horse safely in large stalls. From there they can head either to our riding ring or to our more than 100 acres of private trails.
We have several court sport options including tennis (with two professional surface, fenced tennis courts), volleyball, basketball and badminton.
One of the first structures built after WeHaKee moved to this wonderful setting, the Chapel provides space for Evening Prayer, weekly Mass as well as a beautiful space for reflective prayers and solitude.
There are four stone-lined fire circles found at our camp. For Welcome Fires and Council Fires, we take the Chicagami Trail to the Teepee Fire Circle and share our final fire together at the end of each session at our waterfront fire ring.
‘The Point’ provides another fire ring where your cabin group may spend a night enjoying s’mores, banana boats and songs around the fire.
