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.
