CWES Summer Camp Mission

CWES hosts day and week-long coed camps for youth on a 200 acre field station of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.  We want all of our campers to grow, learn, and connect during their experience at CWES.

CWES staff are committed to the leadership, support, and inspiration of youth to foster new perspectives, passions, and an appreciation of the outdoors.  CWES provides a safe and healthy environment for positive growth experiences, quality education and a nurturing setting for discovery and recreation.

All summer campers at CWES get the chance to:

  • Make new friends
  • Learn new skills
  • Enjoy being outside
  • Learn to value nature
  • Become more self-confident
It is our goal for our campers to experience an age-appropriate progression of camps and activities that help them gain new friends, skills, and memories.  Each of our different types of camps helps campers grow and develop as learners and leaders.
