ARCh Camp Pow Wow 2014

This season promises to be our very best, with a new Life Skills program, specialized equipment and resources for campers with sensory needs, and some great new theme weeks along with some exciting surprises.  Of course, camp will still be chock-full of traditional favorites like swimming, fishing, sleeping overnight in tents, rowdy songs around the campfire, and moments our campers will treasure forever!

Camp Pow Wow offers residential and day camp options for people of all ages and a variety of abilities.  Campers make friends and develop new skills through experiences in swimming, fishing, canoeing, arts and crafts, recreation, music and nature.  Theme weeks provide campers with the opportunity to explore science, the outdoors and the arts through visits by special guests.  As one of the first camps in the area established to serve people with disabilities, Camp Pow Wow remains committed to accommodating all needs; no one is turned away due to disability or financial circumstance.

Since 1959, Camp Pow Wow has been providing outdoor recreational opportunities for adults and children with disabilities. Located in scenic Menomonee Park, Pow Wow gives campers a taste of the camp experience without going too far from home. In 1998, a lodge was built as the camps home base, providing us with a full service kitchen, bathrooms, nurse's office, and air conditioning to help cool off those hot summer days. Last year, more than 200 campers joined us for "fun in the sun" at Camp Pow Wow.
