"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."
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.
