Camp Ak-O-Mak has been enjoying sporting traditions for over 80 years. Our program works to achieve our goals: we strive to empower girls and provide the opportunity for fun and laughter. Though we have a daily schedule, our Program Director and counselor staff are expert at re-writing a day on a moment’s notice due to inclement weather or to take advantage of a terrific opportunity! Depending on the session, campers will have the chance to participate in some very special activities, such as the Ak-O-Mak Softball Game, the Sailing Regatta, the 10k Race, and Treasure Hunt (just to name a few).
