Visiting Day

Visiting day for 2017 is either Friday, July 21st or Saturday, July 22nd. Parents, or other visitors, can choose one of those days and plan to arrive sometime around 9 am! Parents will be greeted at the main office where they will receive their son’s camp picture, a schedule of the day’s activities and be informed of where they can meet up with their son(s).

Each camper will attend his scheduled activities for the day while parents enjoy a regularly scheduled day. There are certain activities in which parents are invited to join in such as free swim or taking out a rowboat when the docks are open. However, for the most part, parents are invited to watch their sons in action.

Parents and campers enjoy a delicious lunch buffet and eaten picnic style on the camp lawns or on the dining hall porch. Immediately after lunch, there is a rest hour where parents may play tennis, basketball, or newcomb/volleyball with their son.

Visiting day ends at 5:00 PM. As parents depart, campers stay in their activities, keeping the natural flow of the day moving and ensuring a smooth transition.

Reminder
Camp Winnebago is a nonsmoking and nut free facility. Please try to refrain from using cell phones and other electronic or Internet devices.
