WEW provides a wonderful opportunity to gain spiritual and hands-on appreciation for the outdoors in a true camping experience. You'll focus on the fundamentals of camping and learn more advanced skills for living in the wilderness. Spend your weeks sleeping in tents, and learn to cook meals over a fire in “Food Groups”. 

During Week One, you’ll cave, climb, canoe, fish, swim, and camp out, all while planning and cooking meals over a fire. Each day is filled with fun activities and useful outdoors skills, interspersed with time to rest and hang out with the rest of your WEW family.

Return to camp for the middle weekend to enjoy the all-camp Fourth of July celebration and fireworks, take some laps on the cable ski, get a batch of clean laundry, and practice your climbing and belay skills before heading out for your Week Two adventure. 

Spend Week Two camping in Arkansas along the Buffalo River. Climb the best rocks in the Midwest at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch, and enjoy other fun excursions in and around the Buffalo River.

These two weeks are a technology-free experience, without watches or clocks, and this atmosphere creates a sense of family among the program leaders, counselors, campers, and practitioner. The Ozarks provide the perfect setting for this wonderful two-week camping adventure. 

Campers should pack in space-efficient, soft luggage (no trunks), as well as bring a large daypack/backpack that will help the campers carry their gear, food, and water out to the climb sites. Each camper should bring two large water bottles. Personal gear is allowed; personal climbing shoes are recommended. (Cedars will have rental climbing shoes available for a fee.)
