Our programs and activities are designed for both children and adults, either individually or together as a family.

OUR CABINS & LODGES “My family has been attending camp for over 50 years. We are now on the third

generation of camp attendees. Camp is in our blood. More importantly, camp is a gift from God that we are able to continue to be able to return year after year.” Our state-of-the art cabins and facilities are designed to fit the needs of every family or group, large and small. Camp Nawakwa is divided into two areas—North and South Camp. While each is distinctly different, both camps offer the same unforgettable experience.
