Katie & Rob Wedding

Tucked away in Elkhorn, a small town in southern Wisconsin, lies Camp Wandawega. From starting as a speakeasy in 1925 to a lake resort in the 1950s to a church camp in the 1970s, Camp Wandawega definitely has a rich history. The venue itself stays true to the “camp” in their name as they serve […]
