VENETA, Ore. -- Camp Fire Wilani held open house tours on Saturday as they gear up for their first summer camp session of the season.

Families from all over were invited to tour the historic grounds and check out the new renovations to lodging for campers, as well as a a new ropes course and bridge.

Camp director Elissa Korbin said the Wilani experience for kids is transformational.

"It's amazing to see how kids are affected by being out here and they may come and they're hiding behind their mom and they're nervous about being here and within like five minutes, they're running around with other kids -- they're so excited," said Korbin. "They want to point out a bird or a newt or something that they saw and they just can't wait to get into it."

Korbin said she attended camp at Wilani when she was a kid, and it shaped who she is today. She said it ultimately led her to want to do this for a living.

She said she is so excited to have the opportunity to give that same experience she had to kids.

Registration is now open and dates are open as early as June 23.

You can sign up for camp here.
