Our friends return to Chewonki summer after summer, developing their skills, their spirit, and their relationships to people and place. On Chewonki Wilderness Trips, each summer is a new adventure but our core values hold constant.
Our programming encourages a genuine concern for others, an understanding of the power of integrity, the courage to be your best self, and a genuine curiosity about and care for the natural world.
Founded in 1915 by Clarence Allen, Chewonki is an environmental education organization and summer camp located on a 400 acre peninsula reaching out into waters of Montsweag Bay.
We inspire transformative growth, teach appreciation and stewardship of the natural world, and challenge people to build thriving, sustainable communities throughout their lives.
We hope you join us!
