WANAKEE NEWS...

 Have fun exploring Wanakee at our annual free day of camp. Great for first time campers— have fun swimming and playing games, get creative in the craft zone, explore trails and nature, enjoy lunch and songs in the dining hall. Ages 4-12 years, and the cost is free. Registration required at wanakee.org
 
From 10am-2pm that day, Come meet the staff and see Wanakee's beautiful grounds at our annual Open House. Summer staff will be available to provide tours of the site, including stops in our Dining Hall and Rec Hall, a visit to the waterfront, and a trip to a cabin. If there are other sites you want to see, let us know! Families and individuals may also stop by and enjoy a picnic lunch, or take an independent hike to one of Wanakee's sites, including the cellar hole, Lookout, or Lemon Squeeze. Maps will be available.

For the first time, Wanakee is participating in NH Gives, a statewide, online celebration of generosity. Similar to a Walk for Hunger or Relay for Life, we are looking for fundraising champions—individuals, families, churches—who will join us as donors and advocates on 6/11 and 6/12. We've secured a $5,000 matching gift already, and now we need people like you to help us earn every penny!  

With 33% growth over the last four summers, increased demand for financial aid, and pressing facilities needs, your generosity is critical to our forward momentum. Proceeds from this 24-hours of giving will go toward: 

      additional beds/mattresses; our new (to us) 15 passenger van; ropes course equipment/inspection; additional staff training expenditures as we add more staff and seek robust credentialing; support for facilities upkeep due to the stress of increased usage.

  Join us! Click "fundraise" on Wanakee's landing page to become a leadership supporter.
