W elcome to the Camping and Education Foundation, home to Camp Kooch-i-ching and Ogichi Daa Kwe, two of the premier summer wilderness camps in North America. The Foundation’s mission “to develop young men and women in body and spirit through wilderness experiences that celebrate a love of the outdoors” is as strong today as it was ninety years ago when Camp Kooch-i-ching first came to Deer Island.

Enjoy exploring our Foundation site or jump right to Kooch-i-ching and Ogichi Daa Kwe for a packed tour of what we do best. No matter your age, we promise you an opportunity of a lifetime – an opportunity to go on a wilderness quest that teaches self discovery, teamwork, service to others and above all, FUN!
