Goals and Programming:

Camp Winnamocka is a one-week summer adventure camp for boys and girls ages 7-15.

The Winnamocka experience: Winnamocka is a place where the imagination soars as you sail across a lake on a miniature pirate ship, a place where “please” and “thank you” get a smile; a place where a child discovers the wonderful feeling of being a part of a “team;” a place where the most common sight is a smile and the most common sound is laughter.

Winnamocka’s Shared Vision Statement (as written by Team 2000)

Our Team is like a bridge in that we trust each other to provide encouraging links of self discipline, positive reinforcement, and responsibility while maintaining a fun atmosphere, bringing to our Winnamocka kids confidence through self discovery, friendships rooted in respect, and an attitude of good sportsmanship through teamwork and encouragement.
