Boys Camp Full Session

Owls, Herons, and Ospreys, Oh My!

Children, ages 10 to 15, may attend Camp Chewonki for a Full Session. This 3-week experience provides campers with an opportunity to learn and grow as part of a cabin group of eight campers and two cabin leaders. Campers spend time in camp developing skills and having fun in daily activities, participating in camp life and traditions, and building towards embarking on an exciting and challenging remote trip in the beautiful woods and waters of Maine. While new campers join us in every age group, we have designed our overnight camp progression to increase in rigor with each successive summer to develop caring and confident leaders who are prepared with the skills to successfully graduate into our Leadership Expedition program.

Birds of a Feather

Owls

10- and 11-year old campers are typically in their first or second summer at camp. They spend time learning the basics of how to make friends and share a living space with other people. We make sure Owls have a well-rounded schedule that introduces them to all of the activities and opportunities camp has to offer. The Owl remote trip is a 5-6 day canoe trip designed to build comfort and confidence paddling a boat and living in the outdoors.

Herons

12- and 13-year old campers are often coming to camp for a second or third summer and are warm and welcoming to their peers who may be experiencing Chewonki for the first time. At this age, campers are advancing their knowledge and skills and are provided new challenges to promote continued growth. The Heron age group go out on 9-day remote cabin trips. 12-year olds and first-year Herons embark on a backpacking-canoeing combination trip, while 13-year old and second-year Herons may opt for a sea kayaking or whitewater kayaking trip.

Spreading their Wings

Ospreys

14- and 15-year old campers have the option to spend more time in the overnight camp or make the transition to our Leadership Expeditions. For those who opt for the residential experience, they are focused on a specific activity area and are developing advanced trip skills on a 12-day remote trip. Ospreys take part in our special canoe trip to the legendary Allagash River. While in camp, Ospreys are committed to leading by example, helping to organize special events, or taking on additional community responsibilities like reading a bedtime story to one of the younger cabins.
