Every year, dozens of area children and adults who receive special education services look forward to what they call “the best week of the year” — time spent at Camp Wah Wah Tay See. 

Officially known as the Greenville Optimist Camp for Persons with Disabilities (Greenville Optimist Camp WWTS) and located on South Street in Greenville west of Tower Park, for the past 59 years, campers have enjoyed sleeping in tents, canoeing, fishing and swimming in the waters of Baldwin Lake and other fun camping activities.
