New & Returning Parents


Hello Parents,

We value and welcome our campers’ families as part of the Big Kawaga Family. We’re about family, growth, inclusion and, of course, FUN!

As you’ll learn from this website, we believe in letting kids be kids and creating a place for our boys to unplug and be the best version of themselves. We strive to create moments each day that define each summer. And from these moments come life lessons and life-long friendships. Kawaga is a place for your sons to grow by discovering more about themselves and who they can be.

As directors, we’re “out and about” every day with your sons. Our summer home, called Bide-a-Wee, which we share with our three young children and one old but lovable Golden Retriever, is located right in the heart of camp. We’ll know your son by name – what he likes, what he needs, and how we can help him grow through fun, family, and all things Kawaga.

Of course, an action-packed summer requires a full offseason of planning. On these pages you’ll find the details you need to help prepare and plan for your son’s Kawaga experience. Please let us know how we can help.

Be Kawaga!
