About Camp Wilani:
Campers 6-17 can have a transformative, positive, and memorable experience at our flagship summer camp program. Camp Wilani at Havenroot is held at the historic location in Veneta, Oregon which is owned and stewarded by Ecotone Projets, LLC. We are thrilled about our partnership with this eco-conscious organization that is well aligned with our mission and values.
At its heart, the Camp Wilani Program is about immersing young people in a caring, inclusive environment in which each child can safely push their boundaries, create lasting friendships, disconnect from electronics and be immersed in nature. We recruit, hire, and comprehensively train adult staff people to be exemplary facilitators of a healthy and positive experience for all of our campers. Every staff person is rigorously interviewed, reference checked, and is required to have an FBI criminal background check.
Although we are working toward it, we are currently unable to accommodate campers who require as personal service worker or one-on-one inclusion specialist. However, we are actively working with other camps as a part of the three-year program to help us be more inclusive to kids of all needs.
We have developed a variety of age appropriate activities that cater to a variety of interests:
