*CHANGE AHEAD* Winona is making a significant change to our calendar for summer 2023. Not only will we be starting camp several days earlier than we have traditionally, but the entire season is changing from a 7-week session to a 6-week session (with two, 3-week options for “half session campers”). 2023 Dates: FULL session June 25 – August 5; FIRST session June 25 – July 15; SECOND session July 16 – August 5
We are confident that all of the great Winona activities, trips and special events will be successfully re-worked into this 6-week model, and we hope this continues to strengthen Winona’s ability to attract and maintain the best counselors and staff with this calendar which allows people to better balance camp with college, teaching and other professions where extended time-off is a challenge. Enrollment for 2023 opens on August 17, 2022. We encourage you to enroll as soon as possible to ensure your son’s unit and session preference.
Located on the lands of the Pequawket people, members of the Abenaki tribe and the larger Wabanaki Confederacy (learn more here), Winona Camps was founded in 1908. Many things have remained the same over our 100 years: boys still spend their summers at camp living in canvas tents on the shores of Moose Pond and
learning outdoor living skills in western Maine. But “newer” activities, such as rock climbing, kayaking and lacrosse, compliment our history as one of the oldest summer boys camps in the country.
Boys from around the country and around the world come to summer camp each year at Winona to experience the traditions, such as the BAT, friendly Red – Gray competitions and The Great Relay. Our campers and staff represent over 25 different states and 25 different countries each summer at Winona. This diversity of people, as well as our beautiful location on Moose Pond, gives boys friendships and memories that last a lifetime. Read more about the What Sets Winona Apart.
