Dates:
Camp has one session of 7 weeks from late June to mid-August each summer. We do not offer half-season or weekly plans--there is a special magic to our traditional full season camping that makes a summer at Wah-Nee so much more powerful and significant to our campers! There is one Visiting Day midway through the summer. Our dates are posted for the coming summer of 2017, and we anticipate staying close to this schedule going forward, taking school schedules nationwide into account. We vary by calendar year whether we start/finish on weekends or weekdays.

Tuition:
For Summer 2017, tuition for all new first-time campers is $10,495 complete. We are a no-tipping camp as well! This represents a truly remarkable value, as comparable camps charge from $11,500 up to $13,500+ when all fees/extras/tips are added! We also offer a sibling discount. Every summer has an early sign-up option for current camp families that represents our lowest tuition for the year. That is the same price we offer to all new campers in their first summer with us, as a courtesy to every new Wah-Nee family, and is the price listed above. Buses to and from camp from our designated New York & New Jersey area pickup locations are included! (Airfare is separate--Florida fliers should arrive and depart together--we coordinate flights in January. Tuition does not include senior trips for campers 14 and older--see below.)

Other Optional Costs of Camp:
Baggage - Each summer we recommend a company that can take your child's trunks and duffels directly from your home straight to camp just before the season begins. Their charges are not part of tuition, and are optional. Some folks drive their gear to camp before summer starts.

Clothing - We are not a uniform camp, but do require some camp tee shirts and athletic wear for each camper. The required components come to around $350 per camper. We use Amerasport as our official outfitter, and you can link to their web site from here to see the selections.

Trips - All trips and travel are included in our tuition except for our 3-day, 2-night Senior Trip (for our 9th and 10th grade campers). 11th grade campers go on an overnight trip to Newport, also not included in tuition.

Extra Lessons/Tutoring - Private lessons are available above & beyond those we provide as part of our regular program for those who wish to pursue a deeper immersion in tennis, soccer, baseball, basketball and other sports or specialty areas. 5 or 10 lesson packages are available where we carefully match a camper with one of our pros. Please inquire. Tutoring is available in reading and math for those families who choose it. All private lessons and tutoring sessions are done at "in-between" times that do not interfere with regular scheduling, so no camper misses anything!

Golf - For those who wish to keep up with their game, we will provide up to 4 rounds of golf during the summer at local clubs. For serious players only (not beginners) who bring their own equipment--please inquire.

Camper Demographics:
Our campers come from all over the U.S., the majority from Northeastern states like New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania. Many travel to us from Florida, Arizona, Texas and California and a good number come from abroad (Spain, France, Chile, Russia, etc.) There is no predominance by any one area or locale. We create our own demographic--we are Wah-Nee!!

Directions to Camp Wah-Nee:
Wah-Nee is within easy reach of New York City (2 hours or less) and Boston (2-1/2 hours). Ultra convenient!

From New York: Take the Hutchison River Parkway to 684 (towards Brewster) to 84 East (towards Danbury) to Route 8 North. Follow to Exit 45 - Kennedy Drive. Left off the ramp, left at the bottom of the hill onto Winsted Road. Go 1 mile to a white church, make a right onto Newfield Road. Clock 4.9 miles, left onto Wah-Nee Road. Go up and over the hill. Camp is on your right. Park in the front lot and take the short walk to our Main Office. If 95 (New England Thruway) is more convenient for you, take to Exit 27A - Route 8 North and follow as above. Both routes take about the same travel time.

From Boston: I-90 West to Exit 3, follow signs to 202 South, crossing into Connecticut. Right onto N. Granby Rd. - Rte. 189/20. Follow all signs to stay on CT-20. Left onto Barkhamsted Rd/CT-219. Follow to CT-318, right onto Saville Dam Rd. Stay on CT-318 to US-44, right turn onto New Hartford Rd (US-44). Go 4.5 miles and make a left onto Rte 263 in Winsted. Follow 263 and stay straight through Winchester Center--stop following 263 when you come to the white church, and go straight past the town green and fire station. Less than 3/4 mile from this small town center make a right onto Wah-Nee Rd. Camp is up and over the hill on your right.

Note to drivers: The sign for Wah-Nee Road is often missing. Please look for a steep downhill turn if the sign is not there. Also, many GPS systems mark camp early on Wah-Nee Road. Keep going straight, up & over the hill--camp will be on your right!! Thanks!

Please call for directions from other areas.
