For Boys Ages 8-9
Chewonki offers age-appropriate traditional activities for all of its campers, including kayaking, woodworking, photography, nature, farm, tennis, and pottery.
The daily schedule at Chewonki is a full one. Campers select three different activities during four separate “blocks” of three days each. There are two activity periods in the morning and one in the afternoon, followed by a General Swim or free-choice period. Learn more about Chewonki activities.
Campers are not rushed from one activity to another but realize the satisfaction of achievement while still having time for reading and quiet enjoyment of Chewonki Neck.
Campers live in their own summer cabin with two counselors and participate in activities and enjoy meals in the dining hall.
Campers in the seven-week session are able to progress through a number of activities at different skill levels, and are able to concentrate in areas in which they have particular interest.
Within the first few days of camp, each cabin spends an overnight at a Chewonki campsite, working on their wilderness skills and enjoying encampment living.
All Puffins go on a two-day wilderness adventure, which may involve canoeing, kayaking, or hiking.
Campers enrolled in a seven week program, and who display particular interest in a specific wilderness activities, may be invited on an additional, more challenging trip.
