Camp Watchaug is located right on Watchaug Pond and also has almost 30 acres of woods, courts and fields allowing us to offer a huge variety of activities both on the water and land.   Campers age 4 to entering 9th grade have both a daily swim lesson and recreational swim time, plus try activities like archery, gaga, sailing, ropes course, climbing wall and MUCH more.  Campers are placed in small groups and spend each day with the same counselor who is able to focus on each individual camper.  Campers try new things, develop skills, learn how to play with others and simply have fun!
