Established in 1921, and located in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin, Camp Agawak is an all girls’ camp for campers 7-15. We are a caring community and boost a staff-camper ratio of 1-3. Agawak is a haven for personal growth, an oasis of self-discovery and meaningful friendships. Agawak offers 48 fun and exciting activities which campers select based on personal interest. Each activity is staffed by highly qualified instructors or experts in their field. At Agawak, campers will gain confidence, develop their character and leadership skills in a nurturing and supportive environment.
Unlike other camps, Camp Agawak is one of the oldest camps in the country and is rooted in deep traditions and history. Our diverse and professional staff is the finest anywhere and hand selected, for their skills, warmth and genuine interest in working with children. Our caring and friendly environment makes our campers feel at home.
We are situated on pristine Blue Lake which is one of the top five purest lakes in Wisconsin. Hands down our waterfront is exceptional. Please view our beautiful property by taking the virtual tour on our website.
At Agawak, our campers get a break from the peer pressure and self-consciousness that being around boys can create. In an all girls’ camp, campers will take on more challenges and feel comfortable just being themselves. Our campers never forget their positive Agawak experience.

How We Accommodate International Campers

We have hosted campers from across the United States, Mexico, Spain, France and China. Agawak personally greets international campers at the airport and accompanies them to camp. We hire international and American staff to help our global campers feel at home regardless from where they are from. Daily we post hundreds of pictures of our campers and activities for parents to enjoy. We allow international campers to communicate through email. Both photos and emails allow parents to feel connected.

Cabin placement is strategically designed to immerse your daughter in a traditional camp setting that will allow her to strengthen her vocabulary, independence and confidence while developing meaningful American friendships. Camp Agawak provides all equipment and bedding for our global campers. Weekly parent emails from counselors provide parents with important feedback and reassurance.
