About Camp Mishawaka

About Camp Mishawaka


Mishawaka for Boys was founded in 1910 and Mishawka for Girls opened in 1963. Today, Camp Mishawaka continues the tradition of Safety, Health and Happiness by providing children an experience meant to provide life-long benefits. Boys and Girls from nine to sixteen years old can choose between two, four, six or eight-week sessions. Each camp has a capacity of 80 campers, allowing staff to know each camper by name- and allowing each camper to know every staff member. Director and owner, Steve Purdum came to Camp Mishawaka as a nine-year old boy and has served in his present position since 1991. He and his wife, Julie, both recognize the tremendous impact that a positive summer camp experience can have on a child and honor the trust that parents place in them when sending a child to Mishawaka.

We invite you to learn more about Mishawaka and look forward to being of help.
