Summer Camp Cancellations

To reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus (COVID-19), CWES has decided to cancel all summer camps for the summer of 2020.  While this was a difficult decision, the health and safety of our campers and staff is most important.  All camper registrations that have been received will be fully refunded.  

2020 Summer Camp Descriptions

Check out our 2020 Summer Camp descriptions.  CWES is an American Camp Association accredited camp that hosts day and week-long coed camps for youth on a 200 acre field station of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.  On the shores of Sunset Lake, all camps include swimming, boating, campfires, and more while fostering environmental stewardship and personal development.  Camper arrival is at 2 p.m. and camper pickup is at 1 p.m.  We can't wait to see you at camp this summer!
