Parents' Weekend JW

We encourage parents to visit during Parent’s Weekend at the end of each session. This is a time to reunite with your daughter and meet the other campers and counselors who have been part of her life for the past 10 days.

We open many activities including the waterfront and ropes course, give awards to each girl, and feed hundreds of hungry families who have been on the road to reach Wavus. It is a perfect time for parents and siblings to enjoy the natural beauty and restfulness of a Maine summer at the Wavus Camp for Girls.

Please click here Directions to Camp for detailed directions.

Please note: If you are arriving on Friday afternoon/evening, you may want to consider avoiding the likely traffic bottleneck on Rt 1 in Wiscasset and take an alternate route. CALL 511 ON YOUR CELL PHONE TO HEAR IF THERE ARE ROAD DELAYS THROUGH WISCASSET ON RTE. 1. A reasonable alternative is to take Rt 126 from Gardiner (just south of Augusta) to Rt 213 right near Wavus. More details are available on the directions page.

We can send luggage home if you would like. We’ll mail you any lost and found stuff that turns up (that has a label on it). 

We look forward to seeing you at Parent Weekend!
