Since 1922, Camp Ajawah has provided an unforgettable experience for hundreds of boys and girls during its 8-week summer program. Children from Minnesota and around the world spend two weeks creating everlasting friendships, developing leadership skills, and connecting to a special place and community.
Founded by the Westminster Presbyterian Church Boy Scout Troop 33 in 1922, Ajawah’s first sessions were held on Phelps Island on Lake Minnetonka and moved to its permanent home on Linwood Lake in 1929. Today, Camp Ajawah holds four two-week sessions for more than 300 campers.
More than half of all Ajawah campers rely on the Campership Fund to attend the life-changing experience that Ajawah provides. It is through the support of generous donors, alumni and friends that the Ajawah tradition continues. Your donation today supports Camp Ajawah camperships.
Over the years, Ajawah has remained committed to a rustic camping experience. We emphasize active and personal interaction by removing needless distractions, like television and computers, from our camp lifestyle. We believe that the best way to have fun in the summer is to lace up your shoes and head out into the sunshine with friends.
For more than 90 years, Ajawah has operated under the guidence of Westminster Presbyterian Church.
