Camp Zanika Lache


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. Camp Zanika's forest setting on the shores of beautiful Lake Wenatchee is ideal 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, all staff are CPR & First Aid trained, go through numerous background checks, and are required to attend staff training.


Camp Zanika is open to everyone, whether they are involved with Camp Fire USA or not

 "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

"Zanika is a wonderful place - to experience the natural world and a place to just be yourself. At home & at school you have all the pressures of fitting in and being "cool". At camp you can just be. There are plenty of "camps" where you can specialize in drama, chess, or various sports. At Camp Zanika you have time to just "be" - and a heck of a lot of fun doing it with other campers and counselors." - Ann M
