When I was a kid, I never went to a full-fledged summer camp. I attended many different day camps but never did the full week-long, overnight summer camp experience. I'm sharing this information with you only because as an adult, I am finally ready to attend summer camp, and Camp Wandawega in Elkhorn, Wisconsin looks like the perfect place to do it!

What Makes Camp Wandawega So Special?

Any good summer camp experience should include a fun place to sleep, lots of outdoor adventures, activities, relaxation, and fun, right? Well, Camp Wandawega has all that and then some with an upscale, adult twist.

Camp Wandawega's website says;

We're not a proper resort by a long shot. We're just carrying on the timeless tradition of connecting people to the simple pleasures of simpler times.

What does that mean, exactly? Camp Wandawega primarily focuses on private retreats and the "all camp" experience, but the campground does have lots of lodging options to choose from for adults who just want a relaxing, outdoor getaway.

Camp Wandawega prides itself on a true 'vintage' camping experience in all of its lodging options, and its website says, "By “vintage” we mean old and unimproved. This is not a modern luxe joint designed to look old: it’s just plain old. That’s the way we like it, but it’s not for everyone". Here are a few of their Airbnbs available for rent...(See the complete list of rental options here).
