Step 1: Submit Your Application

Submit your application through CampInTouch, our online booking system.
If you need assistance with the process please contact the camp office: or call Leslie Hunter at 207-882-7323, ext. 104

Step 2: Await Confirmation

Submitting an application form online does not automatically enroll your child in a Chewonki program. Once your application has been received, we will review it for appropriate program placement. Please note that we may contact you with questions to ensure the most appropriate program placement for your child or to make you aware of a waiting list for the program.

Please Note

A fully completed registration form, director approval, and a deposit is required to hold a program space. Deposits are non-refundable.*

Step 3: Receive Enrollment Confirmation

Once we have made a program determination and have processed your deposit, you will receive an acknowledgement letter formally welcoming your child to the program. In this letter, you will receive links back to our website for more information on getting your child ready for their Chewonki experience. Families intending to apply for financial aid will be sent a separate email at this time with instructions for applying and a link to our third-party financial aid service.

Please Note

A note for families carrying over a credit from summer 2020: we will apply your non-refundable deposit (either $700, $400 or $100) towards the deposit owed. Any remaining credit balance will be applied to your remaining tuition. The first half of which is due February 1 and the remaining balance is due May 1."

Step 4: Make Tuition Payments*

Our payment schedule is as follows: 

  • February 1 – half balance due
  •  May 1 – remaining balance due

Please call our business office at (207) 656-5891 if you have any questions about tuition payment.

Withdrawals: A full refund, minus the advance deposit, will be given if a participant withdraws prior to May 15. The family is responsible for the entire tuition if the participant withdraws after May 15, arrives late for camp or leaves early. If a participant leaves a program early due to illness or injury, the tuition will not be refunded. However, 50% of the remaining prorated balance may be credited to another program for the following summer. Alternate programs are not available if a participant is unable to continue in the program for which they are registered. If you have any questions, please consult with the program director. 

COVID-19 Cancellation Policy Addendum: Chewonki reserves the right to cancel, delay, substitute, or revise any program itinerary due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  If Chewonki cancels programming prior to summer due to COVID we will refund tuition, including advance deposits. Families will be given an opportunity to have those funds carried over to 2022, obtain a refund, and/or donate a portion to Chewonki.

 If your child is sent home after arriving at Chewonki COVID-free we will pro-rate and refund tuition paid from the date of departure. Families will be given an opportunity to have those funds carried over to 2022, obtain a refund, and/or donate a portion to Chewonki.
