Where We Live

There are approximately  200 campers at Keewaydin. To give each boy the best possible summer experience, campers are divided into four age groups, or "wigwams."

            Annwi - 8 to 10 year olds
            Waramaug - 10 to 12 year olds
            Wiantinaug - 12 to 14 year olds
            Moosalamoo - 14 to 16 year olds

Each wigwam is, in many ways, its own small camp, with an experienced director and staff, waterfront area, campfire circle, play area, boats and a program  geared for that particular age group.

Boys in Annwi live in platform tents or cabins, with 4 boys and 1 staffman in each.  In Waramaug and Wiantinaug, boys live in platform tents, also with 4 campers and 1 staffman in each. While the other wigwams are grouped around the lake, Moosalamoo campers live up the mountain in cabins with 10-12 boys and 3-4 staffmen in each. This separation gives the oldest campers a special status and privacy from the younger campers.
