Yes, we do occasionally rent all of Camp Wandawega for folks to use for their own “self-guided” events, family functions, weddings, reunions, etc. We do this on a two night only basis, not one day/one night.
Our grounds can relatively easily accommodate functions with up to 125+/- guests for an event/ceremony/reception and @ 45-50 overnight guests. (There are plenty of nearby traditional hotel, motel and B&B options for accommodating additional guests.) We simply lease the property as a landlord; we do not provide any event services ourselves. That’s good news: this means you’re welcome to use whichever event services company, caterer, bartenders, etc. that you’d like. Please note: we can’t do tours without an appointment, as we have to arrange a day/time without conflicts. Our process is VERY informal. There is no formal application or application fee. We simply meet folks, ideally at Wandawega, do a tour, discuss the realities of events at Camp Wandawega, and if we don’t scare you away, we pencil you in for a date, work on a draft lease for your review, then we finalize the lease and take the initial deposit. For a look at past events, do a Google image search for “Wandawega” and you’ll get an unvarnished, unedited peek into many past events. If you’d like more info, please email email@example.com and we’ll get back to you with more details.
We only do exclusive “all camp” rentals, whereby the wedding party and guests have the whole place to themselves for the lease term. From past experience we’ve learned that the intimate nature of such events doesn’t allow us to do smaller weddings on only a portion of the camp. The other guests end up feeling like intruders and it’s not fair to them, I hope you can understand.
