The Gulf Coast's Youth Camp on Biloxi Back Bay

Camp Wilkes is located on an 89 acre site on the north shore of the Bay of Biloxi. The 10 acres adjacent to the shore line is considered the Main Camp area. The remaining 79 acres are heavily wooded with trails and primitive camp sites. There are 32 buildings located in the Main Camp area.

The First Aid Hut is a three room facility used to house a small medical station. (This building is for medical purposes and medical staff only.)

Hiller Hall is a complete kitchen and dining facility with a seating capacity of 200 people.

Hart Hall has recently been remodeled with upgraded heating and air conditioning, ADA restroom facilities, a kitchenette, and is for meetings, small gatherings, conferences, craft rooms, multimedia presentations.

We have a 200ft pier with boat access, hand rails, lights, electricity, water, and a covered pavilion.

Camp Wilkes also has a 35ft x 75ft fenced in swimming pool. MUST PROVIDE YOUR OWN LIFEGUARD! (Refinished, upgraded to salt-water, and expanded viewing area installed in 2011)

There are five covered pavilions throughout the main camp area.

We also have a BB Gun range (BB guns only due to city ordinances) and an archery range. (At present you must supply your own equipment and Range Masters when using the two ranges)

There is an outdoor amphitheater facing the bay with seating for up to 1000 and theatrical lighting control. (See Camp Ranger for further details and access. Arrangements for lighting must be made ahead of time.)

These facilities are surrounded by 11 cabins of various sizes sleeping from 16 to 40 persons in open bays on double bunk beds. Cabins have either unattached or indoor bathroom and shower facilities. Two of the cabins are equipped with small kitchens(refrigerator, stove, and small preparation area) for smaller groups not needing the large mess hall. All buildings and pavilions are equipped with lights for night activities.
