In 1947, Edna and Nate Wasserman bought a small 3 cabin resort on Meta Lake, which has now blossomed into a gorgeous camp facility that is the home to over 250 campers and counselors each and every summer. Marimeta is more than a camp… it’s a feeling. For almost 70 years, several thousand young ladies have called it their summer home. Third generation camp directors Sandy and Terry Cohen have operated Marimeta since 1984. Nestled in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin, Marimeta is situated on Meta Lake. A private 200-acre lake with no public access.
Our girls live in one of 13 well-appointed cabins complete with electricity and bathrooms with hot and cold running water. Our cabins are equipped with thermostat-controlled heaters to help take the chill out of a cool northern Wisconsin evening. Our administrative staff lives in the Main Lodge affectionately named the “Isle of View”. The Lodge is everyone’s living room and is where our main offices are located. It is here that our girls come to visit daily. Whether to check their schedule, visit with administrative staff, or just get a piece of fresh fruit in between activities. The Lodge has a comfortable living room area, a staff retreat, and even a large kitchen for cooking classes. On Sunday mornings, campers are usually found here lounging in pajamas, playing jacks, and laughing with other members of the Marimeta family, just as they would in their own home on a weekend morning. Monday through Saturday, the main office is hustling and bustling with campers and counselors planning and conducting their daily schedules.
