Camp Chewonki for Girls
Our youngest campers, the Puffins, have completed grades 2 or 3 and spend 10 days or 3 weeks with us in a cabin group of six to eight campers and two cabin leaders.
In camp, Puffins are introduced to our core activities and learn foundational skills that they will build upon when they return to camp each summer. Puffin wilderness trips are one or two night adventures at the end of the Chewonki Neck peninsula that provide a wonderful introduction to camping and traveling in the wild. With help from their cabin leaders, Puffins set up a campsite, pitch their tents, and learn to cook over an open fire. They develop their paddling skills and discover what it’s like to live and sleep outdoors with a close-knit group.
For many Puffins, Chewonki is their first experience away from home, spending days and nights apart from their families. We provide a warm and friendly environment, highly trained staff, and careful supervision to make their first camp experience a success.
