Sleepaway Camp

When a girl leaves home and embraces the camp life, she meets new friends and peers on even ground. As our high-adventure camp, Camp Inawendiwin's sleepaway camp programs are designed to encourage girls to try new things, discover independence, and connect with their camp community free of electronic devices.

Girls will be able to choose their activities and deepen their relationship with the outdoors while fostering their creativity by unplugging from their digital world. Whether she spends four days with us or six weeks, you’ll see a more mature and independent girl at home by the end of the summer. Options available for girls in grades 2-12.

It will help us consolidate and integrate camper health information into a centralized and secure location. The CampDoc system will give our Health Supervisors and Nurses instant access to camper health information, a key component in providing patient care.

The security, confidentiality, and privacy of your campers’ personal health information will always be protected. The CampDoc.com site is secure, encrypted, and password protected.
