Ajawah HistorySince 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 BSA troops 33 and 100.
For 80 years, Ajawah has operated under the guidence of Westminster Presbyterian Church.
