Special Events: July 4th BBQ | Senior Trips | Coed Activities | Lake Compounce | Watersports Day

Every two week session includes something special. DJ’s, rock bands, magicians, and game shows are just a few of the amazing things campers can look forward to every session.

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!

Senior Trips

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.

Coed Activities

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.

Lake Compounce

Any campers that stay for multiple sessions (4 weeks, 6 weeks, or 8 weeks) ride roller-coasters and have a blast in the water-park at Lake Compounce!

Watersports Day

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.
