The Keewaydin Foundation provides camping experiences and challenges that help children achieve significant personal growth by living in a community, being independent and living simply in rustic and natural settings.
To achieve our mission, the Foundation-operated summer camps and programs:
Provide caring communities that emphasize working together, fairness, trust, kindness, tolerance, forgiveness and compassion.
Provide challenges through tripping, activities and lifestyle that help children develop self-confidence.
Strive to continually evaluate and develop programs in order to ensure their excellence and safety.
Provide outstanding staff leadership through careful hiring, training and evaluation.
Bring together children and staff from a broad range of social, economic, racial, religious, ethnic and national backgrounds.
Teach the importance of concern and service to others in keeping with the motto, “Help the Other Fellow.”
Teach stewardship of the land through an appreciation and understanding of our natural world.
Provide and model a safe, happy, fun and simple life.See more
