The Camp Segowea experience gently encourages kids to try new things that take them out of their comfort zone. Many first time Segowea campers never swam in a lake, sang taps, ate wild blueberries, hiked several miles, danced the Time Warp, or transformed from stranger to friend in just a few days.

Overnight campers sleep in one of our 11 chestnut cabins on “cabin row.” The cabins are simple structures with bunk beds, electricity, large screened windows, & under the bed storage space for suitcases or trunks.

Campers & staff eat together in our lakeside dining hall.  Meals are served family style at cabin tables & offer a variety of options.  Breakfast includes a cereal, yogurt, & fresh fruit in addition to the main & side dishes. Lunch & dinner offer a soup and salad bar &peanut butter and jelly station in addition to the main course & sides. 

Our Cabin Counselors are summer super heroes who lead cabin groups and assist with daily program facilitation to ensure that this summer is a treasured experience for all campers! Camp staff are committed to the health and safety of each camper at camp.

 

An experienced pediatric nurse oversees all campers medical needs.  Staff are trained in CPR, First Aide, bully prevention, and development needs of different campers.  All cabins maintain a ratio of at least 1 head counselor to 8 campers, and have an additional junior counselor, or second head counselor, to assist with daily needs.
