Camp Chewonki for Boys
We offer age-appropriate traditional camp activities with special attention paid to our youngest campers, the Puffins.
Programs for Puffins:
Puffins live in their own summer cabin with two counselors, and participate in all camp activities, including kayaking, woodworking, photography, nature, archery, farm, tennis, and sports, games, arts and crafts. Learn more about camp activities.
The daily schedule at Chewonki is a full one, with a good mix of scheduled and free-choice activities.
There are two activity periods each morning and one in the afternoon, followed by a general swim or free-choice period.
We plan the day carefully for Puffins so that campers are not rushed from one activity to the next, but instead have time to enjoy themselves, and make the most of learning, friendship and the beauty of Chewonki Neck.
Adventure Trips for Puffins:
All Puffins go on a two-day wilderness adventure trip with their counselors, which may involve canoeing, kayaking, or hiking.
This short trip is a wonderful introduction to setting up a campsite, erecting a tent and learning to cook over an open fire.
For many Puffins, Chewonki is their first experience away from home, and their first time spending the night away from their families. We provide a warm and friendly environment, highly trained staff, and careful supervision to make their first camp experience their best camp experience!
