  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Camp Kwasind

    our take

    For more than 75 years Kwasind has attracted campers from across denominations and faith backgrounds. They are drawn by the values that are expressed here, as well as the size and culture of the camp. Kwasind is a place where every camper is known and feels a part of the community while he or she is at camp. The lakefront is  focus, and rightly so. Cabins and infrastructure are up to date in all the important ways. The activities are those associated with a traditional camp experience, including leadership training. There are also opportunities for campers to explore their faith with peers and mentors, perhaps particularly within the 2-week LEAP sessions.

    Great camp on all fronts - Must attend
    JP Petines (Parent)

    My daughter arrived at camp not quite knowing what to expect, and joining a program she had not previously done. Her cabin leaders helped her settle in quickly. The staff were very organized and welcoming (they cheer you on as you enter the premises). They did a variety of fun indoor and outdoor activities with new friends for a whole week. There were a lot of activities that helped build up my daughter's confidence. Most importantly, she learned more about God. She's excited to do it again next year ... Read More
