Hello, we’re Ann and Pepe Perron, owners and directors of Camp Nakanawa for over 20 years providing an environment for girls to gain skills while at the same time build strength of character and a sense of unselfishness.
Nakanawa has touched the lives of young ladies from all over the world. We invite you to share in this special place called Camp Nakanawa.
Junior Camp: Younger girls require encouragement and motivation to try all activities, both for the experience as well as for gaining knowledge of basic fundamentals. The two week and four week programs are well organized and schedule activities to meet these camper’s needs. We strive for a camper/counselor ratio of four to one. Junior Camp accepts girls from eight to twelve years old.
Senior Camp: Many girls of Intermediate and Senior Camp age have good foundations in some activities and are anxious to pursue their special skills and interests. With only four required classes – swimming, tennis, glee club, and canoeing – Intermediate and Senior Campers have many elective activities which include arts and crafts, softball, diving, drama, hand bells, lifeguard training, sailing, dance, fencing, archery, riflery, riding, soccer, climbing wall, and zip line. Required classes meet four days a week; some electives meet four days, others two. There is a rest hour daily followed by a free swim period on weekdays.
