Looking for a smaller venue for your function? The Wagner Building may be what you’re looking for. It comfortably fits small groups, 30 or less, and can be used for many different kinds of occasions.
The Wagner building is located on the northwest side of Camp TaPaWingo, situated below a quaint pine forest. It is equipped with a small arts and craft kitchen, restrooms and showers. This makes it ideal for more active groups — those who prefer “doing” rather than just sitting. Do you need space for an arts & crafts class, a quilting circle or other group project? Look no further. Behind the Wagner Building is a small firepit area and benches. It’s a great area for telling ghost stories or to simply enjoy an evening with nature. Camp staff will supply you with firewood; please do not bring your own.
Are you hosting a birthday party and want more room and less work at home? There’s easy access to the camp’s sledding hill which makes the Wagner Building a great setting for a child’s winter birthday party.
