This year, Wood County will be camping with Lincoln, Portage, Taylor, and Waupaca counties.
We are excited to announce that we will have two overnight camps and that we are in need of camp counselors for both of them:
- Junior Camp at Central Wisconsin Environmental Station in Amherst Junction; June 14-15, 2019
- Intermediate Camp at Upham Woods in Wisconsin Dells; June 9-11, 2019

Camp counselors are required to be mature and able to relate to campers and staff. They must take leadership responsibility and be able to help evaluate camp. Most qualified applicants will have experience as a camper or counselor. Counselors will be chosen based on how closely they meet the criteria of the position.
