Shop: Wandawega Camp Store

June 21st, 2012 | By Meghan in Wisconsin | 2,659 Comments »

I saw Wes Anderson’s impeccably set-designed Moonrise Kingdom over the weekend, so the new camp shop that just opened at Wandawega seems particularly on-time. Retro canteens, Boyscout-issue axes and antique rackets! Slingshots! Wooden arrows! Guests at Camp Wandawega ask so regularly where they can find similar camp-style goods (if you’ve seen the place, then you understand) […]


Stay: Wandawega Teepee

December 28th, 2011 | By Meghan in Inns & Hotels, Uncategorized, Wisconsin | 6,790 Comments »

Tereasa from Wandawega emailed me a few months back after reading the post about the Red Welly in Wales, saying that she was “so getting a teepee.” And true to her wildly ambitious, girl-who-never-sleeps form (see her treehouse for proof), she had the thing ordered, erected and decorated in a month’s time. It’s officially the […]

I think I’ve gushed sufficiently about Camp Wandawega that you ought know what it is by now: a sprawling, super creative camp in Wisconsin with a rustic lodge, old hotel (once used for the sake of the country’s oldest female occupation), boy scout tent, outdoor chapel (the place was also previously a Latvian summer camp), […]

Sometimes returning to an old favorite is just as exciting as discovering a new spot. At Wandawega, David and Tereasa are perpetually making changes*–from a brand-new boardwalk along the lake to incorporating their latest hauls from the local flea markets.

When Chicagoan David Hernandez, who spent boyhood summers at a Latvian summer camp in Wisconsin, took his fiancé (now wife) Tereasa Surratt to see Camp Wandawega, they left with a parting request to the elderly priest: “If you ever decide to sell this place, call us first.” The call came five years later and the […]

Happy Holidays!

A couple weeks ago, my talented baker friend Jess and I drove to Wandawega to spend two days making Christmas gifts and crunching around in the woods. We left on a Sunday afternoon and arrived after dark. I really wanted to sleep in the treehouse, which was in mid-construction phase during my last visit, but […]

I love to see what people find interesting when they travel–the details they choose to capture: a memory, a well-designed interior, the way the light shines down a busy street at dawn. Here, Tereasa Surratt, owner/decorator of Camp Wandawega (including recently featured treehouse) and design book author (A Very Modest Cottage and about-to-be-released Found, Free […]
