Camp Weloki for Girls is a one-week overnight sleep-away camp for girls going into 4th - 12th grades. We are family owned and operated by Dr. Tim and Anne Jordan for the last 30 years. Our camp is a safe home away from home that teaches girls to be their authentic selves, gain confidence, use their voice, learn about friendships, and practice leadership skills, all while having a blast.
Camper activities include pool and lake swimming, canoeing and kayaking, hiking, star gazing, arts and crafts fun, hair wrap and friendship bracelet making, tye-dying, dance parties, talent shows, beach party, outdoor movie, and Goddess/Warrior night.
There is no stronger bond than the one between a child and their dog! At this dog-friendly half-day camp, kids and teens will spend the day with their furry best friend at Purina Farms. They'll learn about the most popular sports of canine agility, flying disc, and diving dog from the expert trainers that make up the Purina Incredible Dog Team, and then they'll be given the opportunity to apply what they learned to training their dog on-site. Not only will they get to perform for their parents and guardians at the end, but they will also get to go home with a sports pack filled with a t-shirt, dog treats, 4-foot leash and training pouch. Camp enrollment is limited and camps fill fast.
