This distinctive day camp program for children in the community is housed at Camp Wawbeek. Its unique location (a day camp for children held at a camp that serves children and adults with disabilities) enables all campers to learn about differences, develop confidence, and make new friends in an environment filled with fun in the outdoors.
Activities blend nature, recreation and all of the traditional camp activities that are available at Camp Wawbeek. We provide 7 themed weeks June through August with daily activities like swimming, arts and crafts, sports and games, hiking, and rest/quiet time. Campers each week will be able to experience portions of our high and low ropes courses. Lunch and two snacks are provided each day.
Please note: It takes at least 1-2 weeks to process an application and confirm acceptance. If you apply on the weekend before the session you will need to call camp at 608-254-8319 or 608‐609‐7658. and talk to the Camp Kee-B-Waw director to confirm whether we can accept the camper on short notice. Camp is closed on Saturday, so messages will be checked on Sunday.
2014 Camp Dates will be announced soon
We will be trying everything camp has to offer including Arts and Crafts, Swimming, Nature Hikes, an Overnight Campout, Ropes Course, and much more! This is a great opportunity to meet new friends, try out new activities, and enjoy nature. It is the perfect week for children who have never been to camp before and want to do it ALL!
Do you have ideas for a wild game that you would never be able to play in school because everyone would get too wet? We will be slipping and sliding through a week of fun water activities and use your ideas as we create new, wild games to play at camp. We will also be doing arts & crafts, the ropes course, and everything else that makes Camp Kee-B-Waw fun! These activities offered will be both on and off camp. On Wednesday night campouts, we will be heading off camp for a water adventure before sleeping outside in tents!
Fly through the air, walk across a tight rope thirty feet in the air, venture through the woods, and take to the water in a canoe. This high flying week will be safe, exciting, and fun.
**NEW this summer. Adventure sessions will be providing a cultural twist to the week filled of events. Throughout the week, specific activities throughout the day will be dedicated to exploring a variety of countries and their different cultures, traditions, languages, music, and ways of living! These world culture inclusion activities will be offered through crafts, cooking, presentations, singing, games, and practicing teamwork.
While swimming, having adventures on the ropes course, and all of the other fun things we do at camp, these sessions will take us off camp to explore our surrounding communities. Waterfalls, natural bridges, circus tents and lakes are out there waiting to be discovered while rocks are waiting to be climbed, and we are up for the challenge of it all!
Swimming, arts and crafts, sports and games, hiking, and rest time/quiet time.

Every Friday we will go on a tour of the Wisconsin River with the Dells Boat Company. Other trips may include: Tommy Bartlett, Wizard Quest, Bowling, Lazer Tag, Ripley's Believe It or Not! and Devils Lake. (Trips are subject to change)
The Camp Kee-B-Waw Coordinator will be surrounded by energetic counselors age 16 and older who will help guide campers through all the fun while playing along. Camp Kee-B-Waw will keep a four campers to one staff ratio, to guarantee that fun will be had by all in a safe, supervised environment.
