Hello Camp Kawaga!!!

28 weeks until camp!! Counting the days makes it seem too far away, but counting weeks… it will be here in no time!! And we simply couldn’t be more excited!!

Big things are happening at Camp Kawaga….the new bathrooms and shower house are coming along and should be completed this month.  FUN STUFF – We are picking out tiles, faucets, sinks and more. They are going to look amazing!!

We are also working with contractors and architects on the plans for the new Mess Hall for 2017! AND we are starting to get ready for this summer – We have monthly meetings set with Harry and Jay as we start planning and filling the calendar with all your favorite activities and events. Matt is starting to send out contracts to get all your favorite staff back, and has already hired some great new international staff (g’day mate!!) we know you’ll love! Reunions are set, and camp is filling up!

So get ready, it will be here before you know it!!


To start the count down, we will be posting to our blog weekly, including great articles, tips to help you get ready for camp and more.  And we would like your help…

Returning Campers: You can write a Pineneedle article on a camp- related topic. Here are a few ideas to get you started (all Pineneedles posted to our blog will receive points toward Mawanda and Sachem):

  • Your favorite activity or evening program;
  • What you should definitely pack for camp and what to leave behind;
  • Why  you love camp;
  • Life lessons you have learned at camp;
  • First day jitters/homesickness (and how you overcame it); or
  • Interview with your favorite counselor or big brother.

Send your Pineneedle article to with a picture of yourself and a quick bio (home town, age, years at camp).

New Campers: Have any general questions or concerns about your first summer at Camp Kawaga? Send them to and we will have some of our returning campers answer them for you!

Also, if you have some news to share about how you or your fellow Braves are “Being Kawaga” during the off season, send it our way! I would love to “brag” about you:)

Hope you guys are counting down as well. 2016 is going to be AMAZING!!
