  • Chinqueka Celebrates 60th Summer!

    Posted August 4, 2014

    2014 is a banner year for Camp Chinqueka & Camp Awosting, as they both celebrate milestone anniversaries. With Awosting being founded in 1900 and Chinqueka in 1955, this year marks Awosting’s 115th summer and Chinqueka’s 60th summer. We are so fortunate to have such amazing camp families, staff and alumni that continue to keep in touch with us as their lives change. If you are reading this and you once attended or worked at Chinqueka, please be sure to get back in touch by emailing us at or connect with us on Facebook to let us know what you’ve been up to. We would love to have you visit to see the incredible changes we have made to the facilities over the years.
