Family Getaways, Family Retreats, Family Camps and Personal Retreats are an option for families and individuals that are ready to get out and are feeling comfortable heading to Wading River this year. Camp DeWolfe is open year-round with heated lodgings and meeting spaces!
Camp DeWolfe re-opened its facilities and resources when Suffolk County entered Phase 4 of the NY Forward Plan, adhering to CDC guidelines including social distancing found here and below. Following CDC and Suffolk County Department of Health social distancing guidelines, day guest groups and families are to bring their own pre-made food and drinks, to enjoy in any of the outdoor spaces around camp. For overnight groups, there are kitchen spaces to prepare own meals in household groups. For groups of over 25, there are also meal options available with individually packaged meals.
Register online here for both 2020 and 2021 and complete all required forms prior to arrival. The program fee is $75 per person per night, for lodging and activities (no meals) or $105 per person per night including meals. Families may include immediate family members, relatives or friends. There must be one supervising adult at least 18 years of age for every four minor children (under 18 years of age). Supervision of the family group at camp is the responsibility of the adults. The maximum group size is 10 including adults and youth.
