Off-Site Activities

by on May 15,2014 in with No Comments

There are so many things to do at Camp Wyoming, but we also offer groups the chance to have some fun doing a few off-site activities as well. Here are just a few:

River Tubing

Sometimes, the perfect thing to do on a hot afternoon is take a lazy trip down the river to cool off! Camp Wyoming provides tubes for both our summer campers and rental groups interested in enjoying a relaxing float down the Maquoketa River.

Climbing Wall and High Ropes Course

For a little more adventure, our older campers often venture off-site to nearby climbing walls and high ropes courses. Many enjoy going on the “giant swing” or, after reaching the top of the climbing wall, zooming down the zip line. It is a fun time that tests everyone physically and emotionally, and friends get to cheer their friends to the top of the tower.

Off-Site Caving

Camp Wyoming has 3 caves on-site. However, for groups who really want to get dirty crawling through caves, we also take trips to the Maquoketa State Cave and Werden’s Cave. The Maquoketa State Caves have caves of all different sizes and kinds, and groups can spend an entire day exploring. Werden’s Cave is known most for the passage known as the “Birth Canal.” As its name suggests, it is a pretty small opening that takes a lot of wiggling, pushing, and pulling to get yourself through!

Trips to Local Lake

Older campers love the chance to visit a local lake for additional fun. They enjoy swimming at the beach and cooking out lunches while they relax by the water. Groups often take the camp corcls to paddle on the water and even attempt using them like stand up paddle boards! The lake is perfect for a casual overnight camping trip as well.

Extreme Adventure Trips

Every summer, some of our oldest campers leave to explore the northern Wisconsin/Michigan wilderness. They stop at a water adventure park, go rock climbing, and test the limits of their adventurous spirit during a thrilling white water rafting ride.

Thrill Seeker Whitewater Kayak/Camping Trip

Our Thrill Seekers camps each summer take a trip down the Maquoketa River. They kayak through the Whitewater Park in Manchester and enjoy the exciting drops and rapids right when they enter the river. Campers then paddle to a nearby campground to enjoy tent camping, cooking out, and hanging out together under the stars.

Water Park Trip

A favorite for our Water Adventures camp, who doesn’t love a day at the water park? Campers enjoy relaxing loops around the lazy river, jump through the waves in the wave pool, and scream and laugh on the slides and water coasters. It’s the perfect way to spend a hot, summer day!
