Winter, WI (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
Each summer, girls from across the nation and around the world have gathered at a picturesque lakeside location in northern Wisconsin, where they have been inspired to become young women whose lives embrace the values of community, compassion, truth, and peace. Providing this experience is WeHaKee Camp for Girls (WeHaKeeCampForGirls.com) and this year marks ninety years of encouraging young girls to be who they really are – who they were meant to be; of encouraging them to be active, be creative, and to explore.
To celebrate this major milestone, WeHaKee Camp for Girls will be having three celebrations throughout the year. Camp alumni, current and past campers, and prospective parents and campers are especially invited to celebrate the camp’s 90th anniversary in a series of events open to the public. They include:
- Camp Anniversary Celebration Weekend at Camp WeHaKee (August 3–4, 2013). An opportunity for camper alumni, staff and families to experience camp. Includes camp activities, lunch, dinner, and a campfire.
- Chicago Anniversary Celebration at the Oak Brook Bath and Tennis Club (September 15, 2013, 11:00am–4:00pm): A gathering of alumni, campers, staff and camp friends to reminisce about camp.
- Sinsinawa Mound Anniversary Celebration in Sinsinawa, Wisconsin (October 1, 2013, Noon–2:00pm). Celebrate camp as a part of the ministry of the Sisters and reminisce with alumni, friends and Sisters.
All three events will feature sharing and reminiscing as well as giveaways and photo displays. Vintage WeHaKee wear will also be sold. To register, please visit WeHaKeeCampforGirls.com. For more information, call 1-800-582-2267 or e-mail Bob Braun, Camp Director.

WeHaKee Camp for Girls is a place of fun and play where a girl’s journey strengthens her relationship with God, self, others, and nature. It was founded on social justice principles and universal Gospel values in the tradition of the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters…and it is completely inclusive. Girls of all faiths and spiritual backgrounds have always been welcome; living among girls from diverse religions, cultures, races, and economic backgrounds allows each girl to grow and develop in an atmosphere of acceptance and encouragement.
