The 4/17 Orientation is closed for Registration, as we are at capacity.
If an applicant would like to be added to the standby list please email Teri Gabel Orientation@adkny.org and be sure to sign up now if you’re interested.
If you’ve already signed up but cannot attend please let us know so we can give your spot to another applicant.
Camp Nawakwa will open April 17, 2021. All restrictions to access camp due to covid-19 will remain in place until further notice from the Park.
The only change to our current procedures, which can be found under the Nawakwa Keyholders tab on adkny.org, is that if you are accessing camp for the day only you will not receive a confirmation email.
If you are visiting for the day only and not staying overnight, simply fill out the Camp Access Form attesting to your good health. You will not receive confirmation, just come and ENJOY!!
If you are staying overnight, please fill out the Camp Access Form with requested accommodations, and wait for a confirmation response before attending camp.
Thank you, and we look forward to a less restrictive camp season!
The Board of Directors (BOD) has discussed ways to streamline the applicant process for our 37 applicants during the pandemic, while retaining the integrity of the applicant process. The BOD has decided to begin a trial for one year of an Orientation Program, effective now. The Orientation sessions, each approximately 3 hours in length, will take place at camp beginning the first day of camp April 17.
Applicants can sign up for Orientation by submitting the same online form, under the Nawakwa Keyholders tab at adkny.org that we are using to access camp. Please specify the Orientation date that you’ll attend.
You will receive an email confirmation.
Meanwhile, Sponsors will still be responsible to applicants for all other information specified in the Handbook, such as the History of Camp Nawakwa, the Hosting process, and perhaps most importantly, imparting the ideas of community and service. If you are a keyholder in good standing and would like to be a Sponsor, please email Teri Gabel.
Finally, if you are a knowledgeable keyholder or would like to be part of a small group of knowledgeable keyholders, please contact Teri Gabel to schedule your most convenient date to conduct an Orientation. If you are a keyholder who would like to conduct an Orientation, but would like a camp refresher, please sign up to attend an Orientation.
We are a few short weeks away from our Camp Opening day. Looking at the calendar, our plan is to open camp for 2021 on the weekend of April 17-18. The Board is preparing several activities and events to kick off camp season including hikes, work weekends, and more.
We will need to follow last year’s Covid protocols in order to meet NY State requirements, including request forms to visit camp, pre-approval for overnight stays, and general requirements around camp use. The Camp Request form will be available next month. We’ll update visit protocols as NY State issues new guidelines.
Looking forward to seeing you at Nawakwa.
