At Ajawah, we play a variety of games and partake in a few, time-honored traditions. Along with these in-camp activities, our program includes a number of day trips out of camp, including: hikes, a hayride, visits to the Carlos Avery Wildlife Center, and canoe trips down nearby rivers. An overnight is planned for each group of boys as well as a host of other special activities, such as climbing the cliffs at Taylor’s Falls, talent night, or tubing down the Sunrise River.
Sports are a popular pasttime at Boys Camp, and pickup games aren’t hard to find. Most campers participate in our many tournaments. There’s a softball league and a soccer season, as well as tournaments in: basketball, tetherball, fishing, chess, foosball, ping-pong, horseshoes, badminton, volleyball, buffalo, croquet, and rock-paper-scissors. Football, roofball, and frisbee are common pastimes, too.
Part of each day is reserved for free time activities: hanging out with a new friend, making a boat or tie-dye in the craft shop, working on a badge or feather, boating on Linwood Lake with a buddy or counselor, fishing, writing a postcard home, or reading a book.
Our activities help campers learn new skills, like outdoor cooking and fire building, knot tying, and shelter building. We push campers to try new things and test their nerve. Campers become better team members and more self-reliant, all while having fun.
The grizzliest of campers are sure to enjoy testing their mettle in the greatest races under the sun: the Ajawah Iron Man and Iron Boy.
