Designed for girls ages 8–10 who may not feel they are ready for a full 3 1/2 week session, the 10-day Introductory Session program offers an introduction to The Wavus Camp for Girls’ many activities, including an overnight adventure!
Girls arrive at camp on the second Thursday of each session and depart ten days later on a Saturday. While on-site, they are housed together and are continually supervised by staff selected for their sensitivity to the needs and interests of these young campers..
Campers enjoy daily in-camp activities, from the waterfront to archery and ropes adventure course to arts and crafts – lots of in camp fun! Intro campers also enjoy trips to our Bremen oceanfront property for an overnight stay and for a fishing trip on Snow Goose III. There is also a good chance we will visit Jefferson Scoop for ice cream as well.

Returning JW Campers: If your daughter was a JW Camper last year and she doesn’t yet feel ready to come to the 26-day session, then she can join us for another summer in JW as long as she is currently in 2nd to 4th grade. We would love to have her back with us and will be sure to help her cultivate her leadership potential in her unique role.
