Become an all-star this summer at Waukeela! All of our Land Sports programs are specially designed to get you active and enjoying everything the Pine Grove has to offer. Campers of all skill levels are welcome to join any program and we encourage you to be bold and try something new that you can only find at camp, such as the high ropes course. For the more advanced athletes, our programs provide the opportunity to use your skills in creative new ways and games that will keep you energized throughout the summer.
We believe that having fun at camp isn’t about winning or losing but about enjoying the outdoors and fostering lifelong friendships with your fellow campers. That’s why there are no teams or rankings in our sports programs, only good sportsmanship and great memories. If you’re ready to play, meet us at the Waukeela fields!
At Waukeela, our Archery program is right on target! We provide personalized safety and shooting instruction to campers of all ages and in order to get you hitting the bullseye by the end of camp. We will also teach you back bow and arrow anatomy as well as tips on repairing and maintaining the equipment so you can keep up your target practice during camp.
Welcome to our Waukeela fields of dreams! Our Field Sports programs are designed with fun in mind so any girl of any skill level can play along. Many classes use new games created specifically for teaching you lessons in teamwork and cooperation while using basic physical skills and keeping you active. On our fields, every girl is a winner and a great sport! We place great emphasis on using physical activity to improve the fitness and overall wellbeing of the campers so real focus is placed on the importance of raising their heart rates during activity.
Reach new heights this summer at the our new High Ropes course! This brand new four section skyline is both challenging and exhilirating and the girls feel hugely accomplished upon completion.

Every girl is harnessed by our very experienced and highly-trained counselors who ensure that every outing on the High Ropes course is safe and enjoyable. On belay!
Hop in the saddle this summer at Waukeela! Our Horseback Riding program is now off site but still provides saddle riding instruction to girls with and without prior riding experience making this a fun and memorable activity for all. For the beginners, we teach you how to walk, trot, and canter as well as tacking and the basics of horse care and barn maintenance. For the advanced riders, we also offer instruction in jumping. The sessions run twice per week in the afternoon and after approximately a 30 minute trip to the stables the girls will ride for the best part of three hours.
