Camp Jewell’s nationally known residential summer camp program provides kids ages 7-16 with the chance to become part of a dynamic camp community that fosters independence, builds skills, and imparts the positive values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
Each week, campers pick three skill clinics to take every morning, such as kayaking, climbing, drama, guitar, and many more. These activities help campers gain confidence in specific skills that interest them. In the afternoon, they head to the waterfront for free swim. Each day includes a siesta, where campers have quiet time to read a book, relax with friends, and write letters home. Days end with an all-camp or village activity, then cabin devotions where campers reflect on the day. The weekends bring special all-camp activities including carnivals, Camp Jewell Olympics, or the World Series of Wiffleball tournament. At Camp Jewell, campers have the time of their lives.
