Typical Day of a Westwind Camper
Each day at Westwind provides variety and choice to each of our campers. Each camper will spend time with their unit at our major program areas (Waterfront, Arts & Crafts, Challenge Course, Archery/Games at our Tillicum Barn). There will also be times for cabin groups to choose their activity as a team such as a hike, outdoor cooking, fort building, canoe excursion, etc. Every camper will participate in an Overnight while at Westwind. This is a time when units head out on an overnight camping trip. These experiences allow campers to gain camping skills as well as enjoy the natural beauty of the Westwind property.
