A Place to Build Community
Puffins, Owls, Herons, and Ospreys are assigned to cabins based on their age and grade in school, with six to ten campers and two counselors. Cabin groups take overnights and wilderness trips together and offer contributions to campfire gatherings, talent shows, and other special events.
As Chewonki intentionally attracts a wide cross section of young people, working toward becoming a cohesive cabin unit is an important part of the camp experience. Cabin groups work together in a variety of ways including dining hall responsibilities and cabin clean-ups.
