Camp Chewonki@Home welcomes all kids, ages 8-18, and is free of charge. Participants will receive a Chewonki care package and get connected to their new pen pal!

Join the fun with new and old camp friends in our 7-week remote program designed to keep kids curious, excited, and engaged through a summer away from camp. Our mix of screen-free activities, optional videos, and live events will help your family keep the Chewonki spirit alive and well.

This full program was designed to meet the developmental needs of children aged 8-18. If your child falls below the age of 8 and you have questions about accessing parts of the program that would be appropriate for your child, please contact us at camp@chewonki.org.
