Swim Lessons


Camp Lakotah is home to the Wautoma Area Community Swim Lesson program!  As part of our service to our local community, we host swim lessons for kids ages 3 – 14 in all levels of swim instruction from beginner thru proficient.  Our experienced instructors and certified lifeguards assure a quality program in a safe and encouraging environment. 

Lessons run for 4 or 8 weeks beginning in early- June and meet twice a week in the afternoons.  Fridays are optional and available as make up days for classes missed due to weather cancellation or absence.  Each swimmer will be required to attend at least 80% of all classes in order to pass the level.  Children that enroll in both swim lessons and our camp programs will be sent to the beach at the appropriate times for their lesson and then can return back into the camp program after it concludes.

Parents that are unsure of the appropriate level should enroll in the level they feel would be appropriate and each swimmer will be assessed on the first day of classes and reassigned if necessary.

For cancellation due to inclement weather, please call Camp Lakotah at 920-787-0123 after 12:30 p.m.

Geocache Challenge

Take the Lakotah Challenge!

Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

Using your own GPS device you will partake on an exciting adventure through the lush forest of Camp Lakotah.  There are a few things you should always remember when GeoCaching:

  1. Always care for the environment – do not break off limbs, pick flowers or disturb wildlife. 
  2. If you should find trash in the woods, please bring it out and dispose of it properly
  3. After finding your cache, please place it back in the container and rehide in the same location you found it

Visit geocaching.com and search for the Lakotah Challenge!  We are identified by cache GC1ZH2Q
