The Redesigned

We're incredibly excited to announce that our website has been completely redesigned!

Our biggest goal with this redesign was to show new visitors to the Camp Wakonda that hundreds know and love: a place set apart, full of Christ-centered excitement, adventure, and fun!

One of the biggest ways we've decided to show that Camp Wakonda is by putting all of our best photos from the summer front and center so that people can get just the smallest taste of the smiles, laughs, and deep moments that happen here at camp.

In addition, we've designed a new page with over 100 photos showing and describing our camp Activites (link here), as well as pages specifically dedicated to providing information about Summer Camp (link here) and Family Camp (link here)! Take a few minutes, and browse around. There's a lot to be discovered!
