During the 2019/2020 Scouting year, Camp Wakpominee will be hitting a very impressive milestone, one hundred years young! This is an impressive event and Camp Wakpominee joins an elite, and very small club, of camps around the country.
To celebrate, the Camp Wakpominee Alumni Association has announced several events throughout the year. These events are designed to bring together everyone and anyone who has been apart of that history. This may mean you have served as a staff member, been a youth or adult camper, attended work days, or had family members who were involved.
Keep checking back for new and exciting programs to be announced. In the meantime, please place the following events on your calendar and consider supporting our celebration.
