Ajawah History

Since 1922, boys and girls from Minnesota and throughout the world have come to experience two weeks of summer fun at Ajawah. After its founding by Westminster Boy Scout Troop 33, Camp Ajawah held its first sessions on Phelps Island on Lake Minnetonka. In 1929, the camp was moved to its permanent home on Linwood Lake. 

Today, Ajawah holds four summer sessions, two for girls and two for boys. Ajawah becomes the temporary home of more than 300 campers each summer, about 80 campers per session. The boys' sessions still enjoy a vibrant scouting program, and Ajawah serves as a home base for Scouts BSA Troops 33 and 100 & Pack 33.

For over 85 years, Ajawah has operated under the guidence of Westminster Presbyterian Church.



A Simple Outdoor Life

Over the years, Ajawah has remained committed to a rustic camping experience. We emphasize active and personal interaction by removing needless distractions, like television, computers, and cell phones from our camp lifestyle. We believe that the best way to have fun in the summer is to lace up your shoes and head out into the sunshine with friends.
