Located in Minocqua, Wisconsin, Camp Kawaga is an overnight summer camp for boys ages 7-15. Our rich, 100-year heritage emphasizes an active camp lifestyle by teaching each camper the 5 pillars of Sportsmanship, Fellowship, Spirit, Enthusiasm, and Leadership.
Camp Kawaga offers a balanced, well-rounded program. Yes, we love to play all kinds of sports, but you don’t have to be an athlete to succeed at Kawaga. It’s about participating, developing skills, giving your best effort and having fun. Boys play on teams with guys their own age and with those younger and older. And, when we compete against other camps, everybody participates. Win or lose, we have fun, bond even more with each other, and display the best of sportsmanship. That’s Kawaga!
With endless opportunities, Kawaga offers an exciting array of more than 100 athletic and nonathletic activities, including a full tripping program, so that campers appreciate and enjoy the surrounding beauty of the Northwoods. Every camper finds his own niche at Kawaga.
We encourage campers to participate and try new things. Each summer and session offers new programming and timeless favorites. Special programs and events include the Boundary Waters and Sailing Trips for our CITs, socials with girls camps, the Kawaga Spectacular, Blue-Gold Cup, the All-Night Treasure Hunt, and sports competition with nearby camps. And, for 40-plus years, Kawaga has proudly hosted highly regarded co-ed ski tournaments and sailing regattas.
