A Nature-based Overnight Summer Camp Program for Boys and Non-binary Children, Ages 8-15

Nestled amongst the pine trees on Maine’s beautiful coastline, our Westside campus on Chewonki Neck is home to Camp Chewonki for Boys. We have been providing children opportunities to laugh, learn, and explore in the outdoors since 1915. Campers spend time learning about the natural world, remote travel, making friends, and, most importantly, themselves.

Chewonki campers immerse themselves in fun and educational activities focused on community building, outdoor living skills, natural history, farm and food systems, and watercraft. Additional activity offerings include visual arts, performing arts, woodworking, and archery with opportunities for swimming, sports, and recreation during free time. Essential to the experience is a remote trip to a beautiful corner of Maine where they will develop transferable skills in camping and leadership to prepare them for more advanced leadership expeditions and life beyond their Chewonki summer.

We offer a 3-week Full Session camp program for campers aged 10-15, and a 10-day introduction to overnight camp called the Puffin Program for campers aged 8-11. Come experience the magic of camp and discover what’s inside of you!
