Life at Awosting is informal and friendly. What else would you expect from a family which has been raised at summer camp? Campers stay in cabins with boys their own age. Two counselors live in each cabin with the campers. All of our cabins are wood sided, carpeted and have toilets and sinks. Campers shower in one of the central and private shower houses.

Over thirty activity areas are spread out on the nearly 20 acre campus and campers will try everything. This includes swimming, canoeing, sailing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and riding go-karts. We also have a climbing tower and zip line, martial arts, fencing, photography, video production, ceramics, drama and a woodshop where you can make just about anything. And don’t forget about basketball, baseball, soccer volleyball, football, lacrosse, rugby, cricket and track & field.

Meals are kid-friendly and nutritious. We eat family style in Awosting’s spacious dining hall. Counselors dine with and supervise the campers at each meal. In addition, we have special theme buffet dinners throughout the summer, many with our sister camp, Chinqueka.
