“This is a great experience for the whole family.The food was fantastic, the staff were very flexible and they really looked out for our kids”.

The combination of new challenges, new adventures and new friends makes every day at Camp Nawakwa better than the last. There is always a strong emphasis on building family togetherness, and enjoying new things in a relaxed, friendly environment. It is a wonderful opportunity for the generations to be united. Our qualified and highly experienced program staff supervises all of our activities.

For parents, the Family Camp experience is a great way to spend serious quality time with their children, in a setting that is designed for fun all day, every day. There are many special adult activities planned as well, like the Parents Night Out event, in which camp staff offer an evening program for the kids while mom and dad have the "night off".
