We are so glad you are considering Camp Agawam.
There is a lot to be excited about at camp. You’ll learn new skills, make new friends, and gain an appreciation for nature. You’ll participate in all of our activities, but you will also customize your time at camp based on your skills and interests. Whether you like team sports, aquatic sports, arts and creative endeavors, or individual outdoor activities, you’ll be challenged while enjoying an action-packed summer!
Boys ages 8 to 15 are welcome to join us for a summer of fun at Camp Agawam. We are primarily a 7 week camp, but we do offer a few new campers the opportunity to try camp out by participating in a very limited 3-1/2 week session. We are proud that well over 75% of our campers return each summer and that many are sons or grandsons of alumni.
Agawam is known for its unique, family-like atmosphere. In our rustic, uncomplicated environment, campers enjoy sunshine, cool breezes off the lake, woodlands, rolling open fields, lots of wildlife, starry skies at night, and the memorable cry of the loons.
An article in the Portland Press Herald in 2009 (PDF) featured Agawam and did a great job explaining what camp is all about.
