July 4th BBQ
Each summer, the campers gather with the Camp Chinqueka girls to celebrate Independence Day with an old-fashioned Bar-Be-Cue. We eat, play baseball/softball, and when the sun sets- we turn on the music and party!
Each year, the senior campers from both Awosting and Chinqueka, our sister camp, take a 4-day overnight camping trip to Cape Cod, MA or Lake George, NY. At Cape Cod, campers go whale watching, enjoy the ocean with a day at the beach with their camp friends, and learn a little about Cape Cod and its history. At Lake George, campers set up camp in the mountains, get extreme with whitewater rafting, and enjoy some of the many local attractions for summer fun.
The campers from Awosting get frequent chances to visit with the girls of our sister camp, Camp Chinqueka. We get together for “socials” (dances) once a week. D.J.’s are brought in throughout the summer, and on occasion, campers get to assist counselors in choosing the music for the evening. The boys and girls also have friendly competitions in various activities on an elective basis.
The fiercest competition of the summer is Watersports Day, without a doubt. Awosting vs. Chinqueka!!! Whether it is in the long distance swim, rock hunts, blobbing competitions, or the traditional War Canoe race, fun is guaranteed. All participants are treated to a Watersports Buffet and a Social between the camps.
