Classic summer camp games & activities
Camp Weloki is the best girls’ summer camp in Missouri because of the amazing growth campers experience while they are with us. The activities campers participate in teach teamwork, resilience, responsibility, courage, and perseverance. Dr. Tim and Anne Jordan, the Camp’s owners, have full careers behind them in child development, healthcare, and research. They know firsthand how important these activities and experiences are to personal growth for adolescents.
Many of us here at the camp (and we’re sure many of you as well) remember our own experiences at summer camp growing up: singing songs, scavenger hunts, arts and crafts sessions, outdoor adventure, and friendly competitions. Here at Camp Weloki, we offer tons of fun opportunities for all ages, skill levels, and interests:
Capture the Flag
Water Balloon Fights
Why is this the best overnight camp in the Midwest?
Overnight camps are an exciting opportunity for children and teens to grow, learn, and find their strengths. They can become leaders, work on building relationships with their peers, and become more self-reliant – all in a matter of weeks. Camp counselors and supervisory staff provide a positive, uplifting environment to challenge camp-goers and help them grow through personal development and working with their peers.
Individual growth does not happen alone, however. Providing a friendly, positive environment with peers and leadership ready to support brave new steps allows young girls to push themselves to new heights. Taking on new challenges, trying new things, and building new friendships alongside a mentoring staff creates a camp experience that will not soon be forgotten!
Our camp staff is mainly comprised of teachers, social workers, nurses, and college students, and many return year after year to continue providing the best teen camp experience. The camp leaders are mainly ex-campers that went on to pursue careers in leadership, education, and healthcare, making them the perfect mentors for youths that are growing, learning, and searching for their own calling.
