Ahmek Camper Sections
Each camper at Ahmek is placed in a cabin group with five other boys his own age for campers aged 6 – 12, or six other boys his own age for campers aged 13 – 16. Each cabin group is then placed in one of our five sections. Section groups are based on age and are designed to help your son grow his group of friends beyond his immediate cabin group. While campers rotate through their daily activities and go on canoe trip with their cabin group, evening activities are always done with entire section.
