Campfire, Sunday Service, Tent Days
Other special occasions include Waterfront/Field Days, Fourth of July celebration, Carnival, and Treasure Hunt.
On Saturday nights, campers and counselors gather around the campfire for an evening of music, storytelling, and skits.
Our non-denominational Sunday morning service under the pines encourages quiet reflection. Camp traditions like these connect young campers to Chewonki’s history and the experiences of countless other boys whose lives have changed here. This sense of belonging helps our campers value the past and look to the future with confidence and high expectations.
Traditionally the day when campers aired out their tents and headed off Chewonki Neck for the day, Tent Days continue to be a weekly break from our normal schedule of activities. While most campers will go to nearby Popham Beach for a day of swimming, building sand castles, and and playing games, others will choose to participate in a day-long sail, hike, or nature field trip.
