Keewaydin Dunmore Boys Camp

Salisbury, VT

Overview

Dunmore: A Sleep-Away Camp for Boys, Ages 8-16. Established in 1910, Keewaydin Dunmore is one of the oldest and most venerable camps in the country.  There are approximately  200 campers at Keewaydin. 

 

Today, our campus at Keewaydin spreads along the entire bay on the north end of Lake Dunmore, a clean, stream-fed lake, in the Green Mountains of Vermont which is ideal for all of our waterfront activities. With over 500 acres of lovely hardwood forest, the location and grounds are perfect for hikes, camp-outs and adventures that help our campers learn about the natural world.

To give each boy the best possible summer experience, campers are divided into four age groups, or "wigwams."

  • Annwi - 8 to 10 year olds
  • Waramaug - 10 to 12 year olds
  • Wiantinaug - 12 to 14 year olds
  • Moosalamoo - 14 to 16 year olds

Each wigwam is, in many ways, its own small camp—separately located—with an experienced director and staff, waterfront area, campfire circle, play area, boats and a program geared for that particular age group.

While Keewaydin provides boys with new experiences that allow them to develop self-confidence, maturity and character, we never forget that a constant of camping days is to have fun. In addition to the many great activities and trips that we offer, we structure plenty of supervised free-time into each day so that kids can relax and pursue individual interests: playing Frisbee on the ball field, swimming in Lake Dunmore, catching frogs in the lagoon, fishing off the dock, or simply reading a book!

Our campers come from over two dozen states and various foreign countries. They represent different religions, races, cultural backgrounds, and socio-economic backgrounds. Each boy is valued for who he is.
