Fridays with Franky: Did you know?
Hi everyone! It’s Franky the WeHaKee camp dog here with another Fridays with Franky! We are on the road again looking for great campers and staff to join us on the shores of Hunter Lake in our 95th Summer! Check out the trip schedule HERE. We are always willing to make small detours and stopovers, so if we are coming anywhere near you and you want to chat, please contact us!
Did you know that WeHaKee has been around for 95 summers? I wonder what that is in dog years…
Speaking of things you might not know, we always seem to get new and unique questions about camp every year. It makes me really happy when people ask questions about camp, because I know they are curious and intrigued by what we do in the summer!
So I thought I would give you a few useful but unusual facts about WeHaKee… some are real questions we have gotten, and we hope to hear more from you leading up to the summer!
Session Swap-We know that you are juggling lots of opportunities for the summer, and I’m so lucky that campers make time to come to camp. You know how much it means to get to have a great summer camp experience and work hard to fit it into your schedule.
Don’t feel like you have to wait for things to fall into place to register though. If you sign up for your usual session and have to switch later in the year, there is no fee, and no work for you, as long as the session is not filled. Just email Bob or Maggie or Thatch and they will take care of it for you… plus you get to keep the Early Bird discounts from your original registration!
Cabin Arrangements- Lots of parents ask if the cabins are arranged by grade or age. The answer is… BOTH! Kind of. Girls in a cabin are all similar ages, and it depends on how many of one age attends. They are a mix of new and returning campers, and two great counselors.
I spend a lot of time napping by Maggie’s desk while she works on cabin assignments, so I know she works hard on them!
Tough Decision- The activity card can be another conundrum. It’s best to complete it as soon as possible, but don’t feel like you’ll be stuck if you change your mind. Maggie and Thatch always have their pencils at the ready to switch things around if something new catches your eye.

Wildlife Spotting- Wondering what cool creatures you will see at camp? Worried they won’t be so cool with you? Never fear, the animals at camp keep their distance because we can be a noisy pack of people sometimes, especially singing at meals. They are there for you to observe quietly on nature walks.
You can help by keeping food and drink out of the cabins and keeping the grounds clean. That way we can observe the squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, geese, and foxes when we want to!
What is your wackiest question about WeHaKee? Send them my way!
And see you at camp!
