Wente - Family Vacation Camp 2024

Event Details

Family Vacation Camp at Wente Scout Reservation offers fun and exciting activities for people of all ages. Archery and BB gun are great for everybody. The rifle, and shotgun ranges offer a rousing challenge for older campers. Remember  to stop by the craft area where you can make something that will always remind you of the good times you had at Family Vacation Camp. And don't forget about all our activities at the lake! 

The trading post will offer ice cream, candy, and snacks. There are a variety of items in our trading post including Wente merchandise. 

Like most national, state, or private campgrounds, you will be sleeping in tents. Families are encouraged to use the canvas camp tents provided by camp. There are limited sites for bringing your own tents. ALL sites are assigned when you arrive at camp. Large groups of 30 or more wishing to camp together should reach out 2 weeks prior to the event to reserve a campsite. Waterfront campsite (Wishbone, Sailor's & the Meadow) cannot be reserved for groups ahead.

Hot showers and restrooms are nearby each of the campsites. Suggested packing list can be found here

A great choice of two Food Plans are available.   First - - Bring your own food to cook/prepare in your campsite. All food should be stored securely at night.  Second - - eat like the Scouts at summer camp enjoying prepared meals in the Dining Hall.  Varied and nutritious meals are available for a very reasonable fee.  The Meal Plan begins with Saturday breakfast and ends with Sunday dinner. 

Friday Pizza Dinner and/or Monday Continental Breakfast are available for separate purchase regardless of Meal Plan choice 

Saturday join us a traditional CAMPFIRE...sign-up at camp if you'd like to perform a skit or lead a song. 

Sunday evening there is an ICE CREAM SOCIAL - a tradition of many years at Family Camp – Everyone in camp is welcome to attend.

WAITLIST:

This is a very popular event! In order to ensure that everyone is safe, program is effective, and the food is on time and hot, we have a maximum amount of people on property and in our dining hall. If someone cancels, we remove them from the list and admit the next person on the waitlist. As soon as you are on the waitlist, please refrain from calling or emailing in. We are not able to predict if someone is going to cancel. We hope that everyone is able to attend and we are thankful for your patience as we determine if we are able to accept more people onto our list. If you are waitlisted for food and not GA, but decide that you do not want to attend, a partial refund will be provided to your General Admission cost. If you do not hear from us regarding the waitlist 10 days before the event, the registration is closed and there will most likely not be any movement from the list. 

VOLUNTEER WITH US 

All of our staff are volunteers who give their time to help make this event run smoothly. Did you have input on your previous experience? Maybe you'd like to lend a helping hand in order to make the overall experience better! We offer partial refunds or free meal plans to those who help us by volunteering. We need qualified adults or certified teenagers to help in the following areas: Lifeguard for waterfront, restroom and shower house restocking and camp host, dishes for kitchen duty, RSO for rifle/shotgun/archery...email Matt Lindberg for inquiries (matt.lindberg@scouting.org)
