For over 80 years Camp Zanika has provided children, grades 1-12, an opportunity to live beneath the trees, learn under the stars and experience the wonder of the great outdoors. With Camp Zanika adventures happen everyday in a fun, safe environment, designed to build community and help youth develop a sense of who they are and what they can become. On the shores of beautiful Lake Wenatchee, Camp Zanika is the ideal location for kids to learn new skills, have fun, and make friends & memories that will last a lifetime.

Every week at camp is new and exciting no matter the camper’s age or program you register for. Our staff work with each cabin group to create a unique experience.

Safety is our number one goal. As an American Camping Association (ACA) accredited camp we have meet over 200 industry standards. All staff are CPR & First Aid trained, go through numerous background checks, and are required to attend staff training.

There are a lot of great activities, including:
Ropes Course (5th grade and up)
Arts & Crafts
Tie Dye
Rafting (fee)
Horseback Riding (fee)
Team Building
Group Games
And Much More!

  “When I, as a nervous mom, approached counselors and advisors with my oh-so-many questions, they met me with honest and open answers. I felt at ease sending my 7 year old son there. He had so much fun, he asked to go back a second time that year!” – Jayma M
