Father-Son Weekend & Alumni Weekend
Boys come to Kawaga for either the full eight-week program or a four-week session. Most first-year campers first come for four weeks. Most returning and older campers stay for the full eight weeks.
We design the program for so that each of the four-weeks sessions has its own highlights and special activities. No repeats! That’s why four-weekers get the sense of a complete summer-camp experience and why eight-weekers enjoy the full timeline, leading from Day One to Banquet Night, our awards celebration the night before the boys take the busses back home.
Experience camp for the weekend.
JUNE 16-19, 2023
Whether your son is thinking about going to camp sometime soon, will be attending Kawaga for the first time, or is a returning camper, Father-Son Weekend is for you! As countless dads and sons (and even a few grandfather) will tell you, there’s nothing like experiencing camp together. And, there’s no better place to do so than at Camp Kawaga, where both of you can be campers!
For the youngest boys, the weekend is an opportunity for them to get a taste of camp and for dads to get a sense of their readiness. For first-time campers, the weekend provides a safe, meaningful, and fun transition into camp. And, for those who’ve gone before, well—you just want to keep going!
Join us for a weekend’s worth of a Kawaga experience enjoying a wide variety of activities, including waterskiing, sailing, tennis, softball, archery, basketball, swimming, canoeing, Blue-Gold games, and much, much more! There will also be plenty of free time, too—to do whatever activities you choose (or your son chooses!), or simply to enjoy Kawaga’s beautiful grounds and the surrounding Minocqua area.
COST: $850 for father and son, $250 per additional son.
Experience camp with your dad.

Kawaga boasts a strong, loyal alumni group that includes second, third, and even fourth-generation campers and counselors. Our alumni also serve as mentors to our staff through the Kawaga Professional Network (KPN), which provides career opportunities and guidance to our counselors, during the non-summer months.
Each summer, more than 100 alumni flock to the Shores for their favorite weekend. It’s a time to rekindle old friendships and begin new ones and to be and play at the place we all love best.
Please join us this summer!
