Camp Segowea is the reason we put on the Wally Waddle every year.
All of the money raised by the Wally Waddle goes toward providing scholarships for local children to attend Camp Wa Wa Segowea in the Berkshires Mountains. Segowea is located just an hour away from Poughkeepsie and can be credited with having a long-term positive impact on the lives of thousands of Dutchess County residents since it opened in 1928. The Segowea experience gently encourages kids to try new things that take them out of their comfort zone. Many first time Segowea campers never swam in a lake, sang taps, ate wild blueberries, hiked several miles, danced the Time Warp, or transformed from stranger to friend in just a few days. Segowea creates a safe space for its campers to experience remarkable growth, learning about both self and others. Last summer 6 area children were able to attend camp Segowea who would not otherwise been able to because of your support.
