Campers will have the time of their lives this summer at Camp Niwana Day Camp! Located near Port Orchard, Washington, it is conveniently accessible from Highway 16 from either Gig Harbor or Bremerton. The 134-acre camp surrounds Lake Helena, a private six-acre lake ideal for swimming and canoeing. Inner camp includes the main lodge, a few cabins, and lake access while trails surround the lake and connect areas for outdoor cooking and campfires. It’s the perfect setting for Campers to explore the outdoors, play and make new friends!

Thanks to our wonderful volunteers and staff, each day of camp will be a new and exciting experience, full of fun activities like some of the ones you will see below! Every week, campers will have a special theme that will inspire our special activities and guests. Guest appearances in the past have included visits from the Reptile Man, the local fire department, and talented artists who have taught campers about their unique art techniques! Other themes we’ve had include “Crazy Hair Day” and PJ Day!”

  • Group Games
