Retreats: Unique Experience

What's unique about Camp Weloki Weekend Retreats?

Personal growth, self awareness, and building life skills.
Our vision for camp has always been to bring a diverse group of kids together for self discovery, life skills building, fun and community. 

Camp Weloki has weekend overnight retreat experience designed for kids ages 8-11, middle schoolers age 11-14 and teens 14-18.

We have "courseroom", our group learning time.  See our weekend schedule for a full outline of the weekend activities.  In courseroom, campers get a chance to have real, honest discussions about what is going on in their lives and in the lives of their peers. Our campers tell us it's the only place in their lives where their peers get real and where they can talk about anything going on in their lives without feeling judged or criticized.  And this unique part of our camp is what brings campers back year after year to deepen and enhance their personal awareness and growth.  And they love the deep connections they make with fellow campers and our staff.  Check out "What Kids Learn" and "Just for Teens" for more information about what campers learn.

During the weekend retreats we offer a lot of relaxing down time to children out in nature.  Dr. Tim Jordan and many studies have found that time in nature helps kids to relax and focus.  Todays children do not have enough unscheduled downtime and so we love taking them on a hike, play basketball, making friendship bracelets or just hanging outside and enjoying the quiet sounds of nature.  It is this environment of acceptance, closeness, relaxation and fun that make Camp Weloki one of a kind and the kind of camp that campers want to return to year after year. 

2:1 Camper to staff ratio for weekend retreats is an important part of our success. Kids get lots of personal attention and chances to connect with and learn from our experienced staff.  It also allows us to be more flexible to allow kids to create new, fun camp activities.

We are committed to keeping Camp Weloki intimate and smaller in numbers

We have one age group at a time during our weekend retreats, with a maximum of 20 campers in each group. We keep it small compared to other camps because it gives everyone a chance to share and be recognized. Campers get to know each other and the staff very quickly because of our low numbers and because of the sharing in courseroom time.
