95 Years of WeHaKee: Water-Ski Fun!
With thoughts of the warm & sunny weather, we have each summer at WeHaKee Camp for Girls, it seems like a good time to take a ‘then-and-now’ look at one of our most popular waterfront activities, water-ski! Enjoy!
Waterskiing has been enjoyed at WeHaKee for decades. Many girls got up to water-ski for the very first time during their summer at WeHaKee. In this 1958 photo, we have a camper negotiating the chop on the waters of Green Bay. Check out the bathing caps! And notice the lack of life jackets or other PFD’s. Safety was approached quite differently back then!
Here is a shot from a recent summer with a WeHaKee camper enjoying the smooth waters of Hunter Lake! Then or Now, this has been a great activity at WeHaKee allowing girls of all ages to challenges themselves and taste success gliding across the waters of WeHaKee. And everyone has a PFD!
Did you learn to water-ski at WeHaKee? Please tell us about your experience and how much fun you had! Or tell us about other things you did for the first time at camp!
