Mission
WACK is a camp that provides children with disabilities the opportunity to participate in adapted water skiing using specially equipped skis and outriggers to ensure a positive and rewarding ski experience.
Program Description
This is a one-day camp and all campers must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

The lake will be open for skiers at 9am. We will allow participants to ski until 4:00pm with a break for lunch. Campers are not assigned a specific ski time. Thus, skiers will ski on a first come first serve basis. Each parent/guardian and camper is welcome to spend the entire day at camp with campers skiing multiple times once each participant present has had a turn. Lunch will be available for each camper and his or her parent/guardian on site.

Before, after, or while campers are waiting to ski, they will be able to take part in the numerous shore activities and games offered by camp staff. Additionally, adaptive equipment to encourage success with other activities (fishing) will be on site for each child to utilize.

Camp WACK is limited to 25 participants per day.  Days fill up quickly, so register early Registration forms available beginning each spring by March 31st. More information and links to videos available on the website.

Camps are currently being held in Lafayette and Milford, IN.  Anyone is welcome to attend as long as they are willing to drive to the event.  We do welcome out of state participants as well.

The cost of participating in camp is $25 per child.
