Camp Activities

Ajawah Campers have the opportunity to gain confidence through learning skills such as swimming, boating, canoeing, crafts, a variety of games, and independent living.  They also have many opportunities to learn about living with others and the natural environment.  Campers are encouraged and provided many opportunities to take on incremental leadership experiences in a supportive environment.  The Ajawah staff is trained to provide a safe environment for campers and to help each camper have fun, make friends, and grow in self-confidence, independence, and to get along with others and respect their differences.  Ajawah is a supportive, nurturing environment.
