This June we are holding Wayland Dads Epic Weekend – Golf Tourney on Friday morning (6/15) with 100+ Dads and Moms golfing on the beautiful Sandy Burr course.  Then on Saturday afternoon we kickoff the 2nd annual Dad & Me Camp Out (6/16 & 6/17) on the High School fields with 200+ campers. 

Saturday afternoon at noon, we kick off the unforgettable Dad & Me Camp Out series of events at Wayland High School.  Organized by the Wayland Recreation Department and Wayland Dads, this is an afternoon and overnight event packed with a ton of fun activities for kids and dads (see Dad & Me Camp Out pages above for details about our great food sponsors and the drive-in movie).  

This year, in addition to all of the entertaining activities for older kids (ages 6 years – 12 years) who plan to spend the night, we have partnered with the Wayland Children and Parents Association to organize field day activities for younger kids (ages 3 years – 5 years) who will now have an opportunity to join the fun on Saturday afternoon, but do not want to sleep over.

At this year's Camp Out, Saturday afternoon (4pm - 6pm), we'll have a Community Zone area where we will highlight community organizations like the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts, WAYS soccer, lacrosse Little League baseball, and much more.

What we do

The Wayland Dads Group is a community-building program for dads, their children and is a great way for families to meet other families in the community and to get plugged into the town culture and activities.

Our cornerstone activity are the Saturday morning Dad & Kids Drop-In Play where dads and kids meet at the Loker gym on select Saturday mornings starting after Thanksgiving.

From there we host, promote and sponsor different activities and events around town.  Along with the Dads Drop-Ins, we have started the Wayland Dads Golf Tournament and the Dad & Me Camp out at the High School on Father's Day eve (the Saturday before and over night). 

*    Fun with our kids through planned activities - Saturday drop ins and trips
*    Give dads an easy, fun option for their kids on a Saturday morning
*    Building a sense of community among kids and fathers
*    Giving moms a break!  (And scoring points)
*    Make it through winter without going stir crazy

Our core values are to be the best dads that we can be to our kids and to have fun.  In doing so we meet other Dads and share information and create events that enable us to make the community stronger and create opportunities to spend quality time with our kids and families.
