Camp Augusta

About Camp Augusta

“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”

Camp Augusta is not your average summer camp. We are a nonprofit residential summer camp that offers a truly unique summer camp experience for campers (ages 8-16) and staff alike. We have the longest staff training in the country, 150 + activities, an organization built on a flat hierarchy, nonviolent communication, success counseling, AND fortnightly oatmeal fights.

Come be our next Gandalf, Dumbledore, or Yoda. Come be part of the adventure!
