Camp Wigwam

August 23, 2023 - August 30, 2023

Ahka Lacka Ching! NSSRA will fly to Camp Wigwam on Bear Lake in Waterford, Maine this summer. This camp offers exciting opportunities, including swimming, tubing, fishing, riding the speed boat on beautiful Bear Lake, and hiking up Hawk Mountain. We’ll challenge ourselves on the climbing wall and in archery and spend time together singing around the campfire and making s’mores! We will also venture outside of Camp Wigwam to watch a baseball game in Portland, Maine, go blueberry picking, hang out at the beach, and enjoy Maine! The American Camping Association accredits the camp, and NSSRA has been taking groups to Maine for over forty years. Camp Wigwam is an unforgettable experience and an excellent opportunity to go on an adventure, make new friends and new memories!

New participants must attend an NSSRA overnight trip before the registration deadline for Camp Wigwam so NSSRA staff can assess the individual’s readiness for this trip. There will also be a mandatory meeting for new participants a week before camp. Please note that participants will be in single beds and sharing cabins with peers. Please get in touch with Lacey Allen at (847) 509-9400 x6833 or lallen@nssra.org before the registration deadline to make arrangements for a single cabin, if desired.

NSSRA will email a trip waiver and information packet in July which must be returned with payment no later than Friday, July 21. Participants must independently perform daily living skills, follow scheduled activities, and function at a 1:4 staff to participant ratio. We do not recommend this for anyone who tires easily when walking. Fee includes transportation, meals, accommodations, and a wide variety of activities.
