For over 58 years, Wanakee has impacted the lives of young people and campers. Those who have spent time at Wanakee understand why it is called, “beautiful spiritual place in the hills.” We create a warm, safe environment where campers of all ages are welcomed, respected, challenged, and accepted.

At Wanakee, we believe that finances should never prevent a child from having a camp experience. Proceeds from the WW5K help to reduce costs to all families, and to provide scholarships to those in need.

Proceeds from the previous Wanakee Wilderness 5Ks have been integral to recent facilities upgrades, all of which empower us to serve campers and achieve our Christian mission more effectively.

Past improvements include:
• A roof for the Dining Hall
• A maintenance truck and snow plow
• Major renovations to our 200 year old Farmhouse, including new siding, trim, and windows
Projects currently under consideration:
• A new tractor with front-end loader
• Road grading and repairs
• A new roof for the Rec Hall

We are eager to continue building a bright future for Wanakee, and grateful for your support through your race participation.
