Thank you for being an important part of the Kawaga Family. After completing a successful summer of 2016, we have already started preparations for the summer of 2017. We are in the earliest phases of erecting our brand new Mess Hall which will be ready for next summer, along with new Omni and Stadium Courts. While this is going on up at camp, we have started signing up new and returning campers for next summer. Registration for 2017 is now open, and Early Bird registrations remains open through October 15th.

Below is your “one-stop shop” for everything you need as a new or returning camp family:

    • CampMinder Login – Login to fill out your 2017 camper application.
    • Kawaga packing list for full-session and 2 week Rookie campers

    • Kawaga Gear – Check out our awesome Camp Kawaga gear – sold all year long.
    • CampDoc registration at All campers taking medication must have their medications registered through CampDoc on this site.


We have significantly upgraded our Referral Program. We now offer a $300 tuition credit for referring us to a new enrolling family. And, recognizing that our best “marketing” is through our current families, we’re also offering a $300 tuition credit for hosting two or more prospective families at your home for a presentation from Ty and Lauren — regardless if any of the families end up enrolling for the upcoming summer. Please see more details on our Dates & Rates page.
