Waypost Camp
Hatley, WI

Waypost on Mission Lake is proudly the oldest of the camping sites owned by Crossways. The camp is located between Bevent and Elderon about 30 minutes SE of Wausau, WI. Its rich history can be traced back to 1942 when the Evangelical Lutheran Church purchased the old "Crooked Lake Dance Hall and Resort" to create a Lutheran camp. The name of the lake was changed to "Mission Lake," deemed to be a more appropriate designation for use by the church. The land is rich in history and abundant in natural beauty and resources, with over a mile and a half of natural shoreline.

We invite you to experience Waypost just once, because we know you will make it a point to return again and again. Waypost is the perfect setting for youth group retreats because there is so much indoor and outdoor space available for your use. It is great for adult and family groups who seek a quiet natural setting and facilities that are clean, comfortable, and dedicated just to your group. Once you see a sunset over Mission Lake, the image will be burned into your memory forever!

Waypost on Mission Lake provides high quality meeting and lodging facilities in a rustic setting. The camp owns over 1 1/2 miles of lake shore and has long stretches of hiking trails available to guests. The camp facilities include a number of newly decorated cabins on a hill overlooking the lake and also boasts a large dining hall known as the Waypost Center. This facility, capable of serving 30 overnight and 80 for day meetings, also serves as a retreat center in the fall, winter, and spring.
