NEW VIRTUAL TOUR OF CAMP!

ABOUT CAMP:

Since 1959, ARCh Camp Pow Wow has been providing outdoor recreational opportunities for adults and children with disabilities. As one of the first camps in the area for people with disabilities, Camp Pow Wow remains committed to accommodating all needs!

 

Located in scenic Menomonee Park, Camp Pow Wow provides a rustic outdoor environment and a modern lodge building that contains a kitchen, bathrooms, nurse’s office…and air conditioning to help cool off on those hot summer days! Last year more than 200 campers joined us for fun in the sun at ARCh Camp Pow Wow!

 

Camp Pow Wow offers residential and day camp options for people of all ages and abilities.  Campers make friends and develop new skills through experiences in swimming, fishing, canoeing, gardening, fitness, life skills, arts and crafts, recreation, music and nature.

 

 

PROGRAM OPTIONS:

 

DAY CAMP - CHILDREN AND ADULTS

Day Camp sessions run from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Monday - Friday and offer a 3:1 camper-to-staff ratio, as well as plenty of friends and fun in the sun! Campers bring their lunch each day. Accessible bus transportation is provided from various pick-up points throughout Waukesha County; see page 9 for details. 

 

RESIDENTIAL CAMP - ADULTS

Residential Camp begins Monday at 9 a.m. and ends Thursday at 3 p.m. Campers experience a 2:1 camper-to-staff ratio and sleep in accessible platform tents with a camper of the same gender and similar age, as well as a staff member. Evening programming may include campfire and songs, night hikes, and movies. Campers bring lunch on Monday; all other meals are provided. No transportation is offered for residential camp.

 

 

RESIDENTIAL CAMP - KIDS ("EXPANDABLE")

Designed for campers who want to try or enhance their “overnighting skills,” this flexible session allows campers to stay one night, two nights, or all three! Choose which night(s) you want to stay in advance, or add overnights as the week goes on!

 

Residential Camp begins Monday at 9 a.m. and ends Thursday at 3 p.m. Campers experience a 2:1 camper-to-staff ratio. Campers bring lunch on Monday; all other meals are provided.

Transportation is not provided for this session.
 

Family Camp

 

Why spend tons of money and time traveling to a far-away location, worrying about the condition of an unfamiliar campsite, or hassling with grocery shopping?  Sign up for FAMILY CAMP where you can participate in planned activities or just do your own thing.

"My daughter loves Camp Pow Wow. She talked about it all year and couldn’t wait to go back.

It is a much needed break for our family and puts us at ease that she is well cared for."
