PLEASE NOTE: All five weeks of camp are co-educational. Campers are not allowed to stay over the weekends.  The camping experience for children from week to week at Camp Shankitunk is very similair.  The weekly themes are more of a fun way to mix things up over the summer for campers attending multiple weeks and for the staff, but they don't significantly impact the Shankitunk experience.  Happy camping!
