Reenrollment Information for Summer 2023!

You can submit a 2023 application for your camper right now through CampInTouch or the Companion App. We had very high interest this summer with waitlists for many programs, but we always want to give priority to returning campers. As always, the tuition, minus the deposit, is fully refundable up until May 15. 

  • Now – September 14: Submit your camper’s application for next year.
  • September 15: Application approval will begin, and the deposit is due. 
  • October 1: We will begin accepting applications from the waitlist and new families on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

If you have family/friends/siblings who are interested in Camp Chewonki, they are also welcome to apply now, but new applications will not be considered until we finish with all returning camper applications. If you have questions about enrollment or program selection, please contact Associate Director of Admissions Leslie Hunter at (207) 656-1065 or campadmissions@chewonki.org.
