95 Years of WeHaKee: WeHaKee Wear
As we approach our 95th Anniversary summer at WeHaKee Camp for Girls, we thought it might be fun and interesting to look back and compare how much WeHaKee has changed and how much it has stayed the same! Each week we will post a photo from the past and then a comparable one from the present while chatting a bit about the differences and similarities for the uniforms girls would wear. Hope you enjoy our first installment of 95 Years of WeHaKee!
Being on the Green Bay of Lake Michigan (near Marinette, Wisconsin), girls at WeHaKee Camp for Girls back then would often wear a uniform with a nautical theme for special occasions. Here are three girls in 1923, modeling their stylish ensemble of dark knickers and stockings, white sailor style shirts and ties, topped off with a sailors cap.
Now the clothes have changed quite a bit over the 95 summers of WeHaKee. No longer is there a specific camp uniform (although the campers do wear a Camp WeHaKee tie-dyed t-shirt for our weekly flag ceremonies), clothes have changed significantly since 1923. This photo (taken during a recent summer) shows a cabin group of girls presenting their cabin call-out for the rest of the camp community!
Hey Alumni – those of you who attended camp decades ago or just a year or two ago, we would like to hear from you. Do you have some photos of your summers at WeHaKee? Share them with us and tell us your stories!
