Camp Nawaka is a summer co-ed resident camp located in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts. Nawaka is a small camp, serving just 120 campers with 40 staff members. Campers from ages 8 to 15 attend Nawaka, coming from varied racial, ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, and geographic backgrounds. The camp is owned and operated by Camp Fire USA Eastern Massachusetts Council, but all children may attend. Camp Fire members make up approximately 5% of the population.
Nawaka is located on 130 acres of forested land in East Otis, Massachusetts, approximately two hours from Boston. The property includes a 20-acre private spring-fed pond, used exclusively by Camp Nawaka.
Sessions at Nawaka are offered in one or two-week lengths, with a three-week session for some special programs for older campers. Campers choose their own activities, signing up each week for a wide variety of choices.
