Looking beyond Your Summer

Although our main focus is the summer season, Camp Nakamun seeks to build program and connection throughout of the year-round months as well. Here you will find other ways to connect with the camp community.


Year-round, we host all sorts of groups. There are also a few key events that we host and program for our community.

Look below to check out some of the events we host each year.

Please note: if you are looking for Family Camps, including our Single Mothers Family Camp, those can be found on our Summer Camps page.

  • Taste of Nakamun | Summer Kick-Off Party

    Taste of Nakamun | Summer Kick-Off Party

    Our Taste of Nakamun event has been happening every June for the past decade and it has seen many changes throughout its existence.

    We wanted an opportunity for campers, parents, families, and volunteers to come to camp before the summer begins and become familiar with our site, our activities, our staff, and just some of the logistics of summer camp. Taste of Nakamun gives you the opportunity to practice before your big week!

    • See how long it actually takes to drive here!
    • See how high the zipline tower is in person, and how the equipment actually feels to wear.
    • See what kind of accommodations your kids will be sleeping in during their stay, and where the closest bathrooms are.
    • See where you line up for food if you have dietary restrictions or allergies.
    • See the merch and coffee bar options to look forward to during drop-off and pick-up.

    We want you to feel comfortable and confident when you send your kid to camp. Come get a taste of what Nakamun has in store for your family this summer!

    This year, Taste of Nakamun will take place on June 9th, 2024 from 2:00pm – 7:00pm at Camp Nakamun.

    This is a free event to addend! Our activities will be up and running (weather permitted) all completely free of cost. This includes our zip line, climbing wall, king swing, archery/pea shooting range, barge rides, and swimming pool. We’ll have a concession with food and snacks to purchase, and our coffee bar and merch bar will be open and stocked.

    Bring your family to get a taste of what Nakamun is like in the summer!
