Click to report rating    8/3/13   5     5     5     5     5   Camp Asto Wamah has given me a place to escape. A place to get away from the real world. It is a second home to me and I love going every year. The counselors are VERY and nice and they actually care. They do everything they can to make sure you have a wonderful experience. Going to camp makes me laugh, smile, have fun and remember why the internet, video games and electronics don't mean anything. I have learned that what really matters is meeting new people, creating memories that will stay with you for a lifetime, and making the most of every individual day. I love this camp more than any other because the campers have good hearts, as do the counselors. I can't forget to mention Nancy. She is the BEST Camp Director. She knows everyone's name and makes my camp experience comical, organized and memorable. She is flexible and proactive. I highly recommend this camp for every child. Camp Asto Wamah makes me be a better person as result of the many lessons I learned over my summers there. RID: 45487

Click to report rating    3/30/08   5     5     5     5     5   I was a camper at Wamah from age 8 to 15, then worked as a counselor there for 4 more years. My sister and I still joke with eachother about going back there to work for the summer. Nancy is a great director and I still speak to the friends I made there. I highly recommend this camp!

Returning there year after year makes me so happy, it feels like coming back to a place I know I belong. The people are all friendly and nice, the food is great, you are never bored and you make tons of friends. Its truly fantastic. RID: 14028

Click to report rating    8/5/07   5     5     5     5     5   This was my first year at Camp Asto Wamah and I was so nervous that I wouldn`t make any friends. But I was wrong. I made thousands and millions of new friends. I was also worried about the food. I was worried I would come home fat. But I was also wrong. The food was actually my favarat part of the day. If you are Jewish like me, you do not have to worry. The only thing is you don`t sing before the meal and before night. The rest of the songs are fun and not religious at all. RID: 13649

Click to report rating    2/7/07   5     5     5     5     5   Camp Asto Wamah is a great place to meet new friends and to have a new home for 2 or 1 weeks. The best part of camp was the songs, I nearly drove my family crazy. Nancy is a caring and awesome camp director she makes the stay easy and is well organized. Taking part in evening actives gave me a chance to meet new people from different cabins and all the staff. I loved taking part in the talent show my cabin did a hilarious Peanut Butter skit. Lastly was the beautiful Lake Columbia where we would go swimming twice a day once were we would have swimming lessons and another time for a free swim. Sign up for Camp Asto Wamah and you will have the best time ever! RID: 7610

Click to report rating    12/17/06   5     5     5     5     5   Camp Asto Wamah is the best enviroment for a young child to experience; the staff is very social with the campers and as a staff member I know that all my co-workers dont only think of the kids as campers, but as great friends as well. Boating, swimming, tennis, and archary are only some of the great activities that we offer. There are so many things to do that you are never bored, and never want to leave. Its a great place to spend the summer and I love working there. RID: 6054

Click to report rating    12/6/06   5     5     5     5     5   Camp Asto Wamah is amazing! I spent about 10 summers there, and experienced it as both a camper and a counselor. Nancy Maclean (camp director) creates a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere where everyone feels at home. I can't imagine anyone rating Wamah as anything less than a 5 in each category!! RID: 5738

Click to report rating    8/3/06   5     5     5     5     5   As a teenager i loved each and every summer i spent at Camp Asto Wamah. I was a counselor for 2 summers, and i also worked in the kitchen. The counselors are super attentive, understanding and knowledgeable. Columbia Lake is sparkling, and pristine! I can't wait to send my own kids for summers that they will surely cherish! RID: 1769

Click to report rating    7/23/06   5     5     5     5     5   This was my 4th year ar asto wamah. I go for 4 weeks every summer and I love it! Nancy (the camp director) has alot of patience. She is one of the nicest people I have ever met. The camp is located on a beautiful lake called Columbia lake. I live in columbia(where the town is located) and almost everybody I know has gone there. Everybody loves it. The are kids there that have traveled across the country to go to this camp, and also from India and France! The food is amazing! My favorite part of camp has to be the tower on the lake. It is this tall platform that you can jump off. They also have rowboating, canoeing, and sailing. During the session they have talent night, campfire, trackmeet, and in the girls session they have Banquet! The cabins are very nice with screened in windows and bunk beds. The two week sessions go by so fast. It never feels like you are there for that long because everybody treats you like family! I would strongly recomend this camp to anyone! RID: 1553

Click to report rating    7/14/06   5     5     5     5     5   This camp is amazing. It has everything, sports, boating, arts and crafts, programs. What else can I say. I went there 7 years as a camper and now I want to be on staff. They have the greatest staff out of any camp I have ever been to. There is one male staff member who they call SweenDogg...Oh my goodness, he's the best ever. Every camp should have one "SweenDogg" in it. Without him, it just wouldn't be the same. I don't know if you can tell or not, but I highly recommend this camp to any potential camper/parent thinking about it. You better get your application in soon though, because they don't advertise, and it's only word of mouth...IT FILLS UP FAST!!! RID: 1400

Click to report rating    5/19/06   5     5     5     5     5   It's pretty cheap camp wise... meaning it's a low price for such an awesome experience. I've went for five years as a camper, and now I'm about to become staff. You'll love the staff and the campers, and the director Nancy is absolutely Super Woman in disguise. RID: 336
