Not Camp like you remember. More like “the camp counselors have gone missing and you found the keys to the liquor cabinet.” These tend to be private, invitation-only events, but we like to share photos nonetheless.
“Who’s who of the Chicago arts community" - CS. The annual gathering of artisans, makers and builders who share their craft, run workshops and get their camp on.
"Another Wandawega memory to treasure." - CHICAGO TRIBUNE. A collection of bands and musicians from all genres descend on camp to jam organically, drink freely and enjoy camp life.
Our modern reinterpretation of David's childhood at Camp Wandawega, all crammed into a single weekend. Crafts, swimming, s'mores, flashlight tag, weenie roasts, and more.
Performing in our neck of the woods a collective of thespians, actors and performers came together to provide a little drama, drag and dance all around the bonfire.
We often get inquiries from folks who want to host their own workshops at Camp. Accepting pitches for upcoming season. If the partnership feels good, we’re in! Here are a handful of our favorite past workshops.

A weekend dedicated to put some hair on your chest. Cheers to a Sportsman Weekend filled with a world champion lumberjack, masterful archery, skeet shooting, hatchet throwing, trout unzipping and an epic bonfire with a little bourbon to toast us off. Thanks to everyone who got there hands dirty to enjoy the weekend with us.
