No matter how long it’s been since your last summer at camp, we’d love to reconnect with you!
Not too much has changed at Keewaydin’s camps over the past 125 years. While Songadeewin has moved from Lake Willoughby to the shores of Lake Dunmore, if you walk around Keewaydin Temagami’s base camp or the campus of Keewaydin Dunmore it would look largely the same as you remember it. Most importantly, the values upon which the camps were founded still guide the programs and the experiences they provide.
We are dedicated to keeping alumni in touch with each other, and with Keewaydin. If you are not currently receiving regular communication from us, we want to hear from you! There are multiple ways for you to connect with old friends and enjoy camp life, from reunions at camp to work weekends to regional alumni gatherings and Open Houses in cities across North America. Check out our calendar to find an event that works for you!
We have lots of ways for you to stay in the loop through our publications, E-News, and special announcement emails. Please make sure we have your up-to-date contact information. Also, you click here to share any news that you would like to share in the next camp newsletter.

Ojibway Family Lodge
A Place Untouched, An Experience Apart
In a noisy, hectic world, it’s easy to believe that places steeped in nature’s soothing silences have vanished forever, and lasting tranquility is no longer possible to find.
But spend just a single hour at Ojibway Lodge and you’ll discover that these and many other things you thought were gone for good can be still be had. In the northern reaches of Lake Temagami, a magnificent north woods Eden is waiting. You’ll find it along wilderness shores that stretch for 4,800 untouched kilometers across a timeless dominion blessed with 1,500 hidden island jewels. This is the land of Ojibway. And it’s yours to wander.
