Summer Camp

Summer Camp

Located near Wagoner, Oklahoma, Camp Waluhili's 219 acres includes almost three miles of shoreline on Fort Gibson Lake, a bluff line, forests and meadows. Campers and staff share semi-rustic, air-conditioned cabins with electricity and a restroom with  shower houses nearby. Throughout the week campers will gain knowledge about the outdoors, explore new activities, make new friends and most importantly have fun. Camp Fire trains all camp staff members to include campers with special needs or disabilities and hires one male and one female staff member specifically for children needing an individual buddy. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience camp!  Camp Waluhili is the ideal place for campers to learn new skills, make new friends and discover who they are. Check out our latest Camp catalog to see what is being offered each week!

Make New Friends

Campers participate in special sessions each morning and spend the afternoons and evenings with their cabin. Meals, pool time, and "all camp activities" provide your camper the opportunity to interact with other youth who are different ages, genders, and have different interests and backgrounds. There are endless opportunities to build new friendships with others while doing new things your camper loves. They are sure to create meaningful, lasting friendships while at camp!

Everyone is Welcome!

We believe every youth should have the opportunity to attend summer camp. There is no extra charge if your child is not currently a member of a Camp Fire Club. We also train all camp staff to include campers with special needs or disabilities and hire one male and one female staff member specifically for children needing an individual buddy. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to attend camp!

Council Fire

We invite all parents, siblings, and friends to attend Friday evenings Council Fire, our weekly camper award ceremony. We all gather in the meadow (so bring lawn chairs) to enjoy the sunset and reflect on the week. Counselors share stories and award campers with  BDA's, Big Deal Awards, and other recognition's.

Campership

Thanks to our many donors, Camp Fire offers a limited number of Camperships, camp scholarships, each year to youth who want to attend camp and need financial assistance. Due to the high request rate, full Camperships are not awarded. To apply for a Campership, click the "I am interested in receiving a Campership" button on the camp registration and answer the questions. The $35 deposit is also due at the time of registration. After Camperships are awarded (beginning in the late Spring), the remaining balance must be paid 10 business days before the camp session begins. If the Campership amount is not awarded, and your child cannot attend camp, the deposit is fully-refundable if you notify us 10 days prior to your child's session.

Pay Campers Balance

If you need to make a payment follow the link to our Pay Pal. If you would like to know your remaining balance call our office at 918-592-2267.

Work at Camp

Camp Fire Green Country is looking for fun and energetic people who are excited about working to provide a life changing summer for the leaders of the future. Camp Waluhili is a residential camp located in Eastern Oklahoma on 220 acres on Ft Gibson Lake. We focus our campers’ experiences on building friendships and leadership skills, self-confidence, an appreciation for the outdoors, and an awareness of community responsibility – all in an inclusive environment. Camp staff achieve this by promoting active learning within small groups while progressively challenging campers as they grow older and gain experience.

FAQ'S

 

What should my camper bring to camp?

-Our camper packing list  is a great resource when packing! We have found that when you and your camper pack together it increases their responsibility for their own belongings and helps them know exactly what they have at camp. It also prevents campers from bringing inappropriate or prohibited items to camp.

 

What will my camper be doing all day?

-A typical day at camp begins around 7:30 AM. Campers and staff will eat breakfast together and then join their groups for the morning activities. Lunch is around 12. After lunch they will have rest hour and swim time followed by dinner and an all camp activity. Detailed schedule varies based on specialty session chosen.

 

Can my camper have their cell phone?

-No. To support our staff member’s efforts to build a camp community, we request parents and campers to leave cell phones and other electronic devices at home. If seen, camp staff collect them, turn them off, secure them in the camp office, and return the items to parents at check out. See the full explanation here.

 

How will I communicate with my camper throughout the week?

-Campers can receive mail and emails throughout the week. In case of emergency, parents and guardians are provided with appropriate phone numbers and contact information. See our parent info sheet for more details.

 

What are Kapers?

-Camp Waluhili emphasizes community responsibility to all campers and staff. Kapers, or chores, are done as a group to keep the cabin and community spaces clean. To learn about Kapers see our parent info sheet.

 

What is your staff training?

Camp staff are background checked and trained in first aid, CPR, life guarding and  across Camp Fire's youth development methodology. Additionally, all staff leading activities, such as pool time, rappelling, water front, archery, and shooting sports are trained and skill checked in their program areas. Camp Fire is accredited by the American Camp Association to meet national standards for health, safety, and program quality.

 

What is the Trading post?

Campers will visit the Trading Post, or camp general store, everyday and are able to purchase one can of soda/snow cone and one package of candy/snack each day. The Trading Post also sells items such as t-shirts, sunglasses, water bottles and stuffed animals ranging in price from $2-$10. Our parent info sheet has more information.
