At Camp Wicosuta, one of the ways we encourage community-building is by giving back and teaching our campers to do the same. The Wicosuta community participates in charitable events over the summer designed to instill these values.
Our annual Swim-A-Thon is designed to raise money for Project Morry, a year-round organization anchored by a summer camp experience for children living in under-served communities. For a week in each session, Wico campers and staff swim laps, and parents and friends donate money for each lap completed.

Wicosuta's annual dance marathon is part dance party and part community awareness. While not dancing, campers are encouraged to create greeting cards, get-well bracelets and other art projects to be mailed to patients at CHaD.
