Families don’t have to choose between focused sports instruction and a traditional sleep away camp experience. Camp Winadu is the leader in camping because we provide the best of both worlds with a well-rounded program built upon our values of brotherhood, character-building, and compassion.
Our Big Brother, Little Brother program pairs boys up to establish a special camaraderie between campers that helps our youngest feel at home before camp and within hours of stepping off the bus. Our older campers benefit by building their leadership skills! As they get older, Winadu Big Brothers and Little Brothers become lifelong friends.
At Winadu, everyone knows each other, no matter a camper’s age. We are one camp. We eat our meals together and conduct several camp-wide events as one brotherhood. Although our campers vary in age and experience, we are very much one camp. What makes our program so unique is that Winadu grows with campers as they get older. This allows each year to bring something new and exciting, yet familiar. Whether your son will be a Brave or an Olympian, they’ll feel right at home at Winadu.
Everyone eats as one family in the Winadu dining hall. Campers are served three delicious and nutritious meals buffet style. Campers love the grill where they choose from a wide array of favorites including chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, steak, and more. Pasta & Salad Bar complete every lunch & dinner. Fresh fruit and granola are available all day as an energy boost for our campers. Most importantly, we’re attentive to the nutritional needs, dietary restrictions & allergies of all campers.
We believe in working together to give back to our community as much as possible. One of our biggest initiatives is the Winadu Sports-a-Thon designed to raise funds for the Ethan H. Freed Winadu Scholarship Fund. This fund is an academic scholarship for members of the Winadu community who are in need of financial aid in order to achieve their educational goals. All donations go to our Academic fund and the whole Winadu community comes together in support of this worthy cause.
We also have a Ethan H. Freed Scholarship Fund – Young Leadership Council (YLC). The YLC is comprised of former Winadu campers entering their Senior year of High School and returning to camp this summer as counselors/Lobos. The YLC meet throughout the year organizing fun events, such as a March Madness challenge.
