2020 VISITING WEEKEND
We look forward to having you join us this summer during Visitors Weekend! Visitor’s weekend is a special time at camp for our campers and their families. At Kawaga the values of family surround us, and we welcome all family members to come and enjoy the beauty of camp and see it in ACTION.
Kawaga’s gate will open starting at 3:30 pm on Friday, July 17th. Lauren and Ty will be there to welcome you and hope to spend time with you all. We invite you to spend time in camp, meet your son’s counselors, check out his cabin, meet his cabin mates, and meet other Kawaga families.

Miscellaneous Policies for Parents’ Weekend
Food and Candy
Please do not bring any food items containing nuts or traces of nuts. Camp Kawaga is a 100% peanut/tree nut free facility. Please note that campers are NOT permitted to bring food back to their cabins.
Kawaga’s policy has always prohibited counselors from receiving tips. The counselors are aware of this policy. The field of camping must maintain high professional standards as well as high ethical standards. While tips may be intended as a reward for good performance, quite often they are perceived as a way to insure that a particular camper receives special treatment. If you wish to express your gratitude, a small gift other than money, as a token of appreciation, is reasonable.
