No matter how long it’s been since your last summer at camp, we cannot wait to reconnect with you!
Not much has changed at Keewaydin’s camps over the past 100 years. Campers are still nervous and excited on opening day; parents are still sad to leave their youngsters and staff are still talented, larger than life characters. Sure, there are some new programs and buildings, but the simple values of the Keewaydin Way are still impressed upon each camper who passes through our programs.
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!

Ojibway Family Lodge
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.
