Camp Kiwanee was a beautiful place to get married! The backdrop was perfect and everyone complimented us on how beautiful everything looked. Nicole was very responsive and easy to work with and the crew at Camp Kiwanee were very helpful. The vendors they suggested were great! I can't imagine my wedding happening anywhere else :)

I couldn't imagine having my wedding anywhere else! This place is amazing, from the gorgeous background for the ceremony to the rustic feel of the lodge - everything was perfect. The staff is so helpful - specifically Nicole and Jim, who are both very accommodating and really great to work with! We also stayed overnight in the cabins, and the guests absolutely loved the idea! Heard from multiple people that it was the best wedding they had ever been to - and I have Camp Kiwanee to thank for that!

Camp Kiwanee is a wonderful place to get married. We loved this relaxed rustic venue. We decided to have our ceremony and reception here. All the staff were so accommodating, easy going, and fun (especially Jim and Ally). We also reserved the south side cabins for the night, which our guest really enjoyed. The prices were very reasonable compared to other venues we looked at. If you're looking for a woodsy, rustic feel we highly recommend Camp Kiwanee! Our wedding was the best day/night!

We knew Camp Kiwanee was the perfect venue for our wedding as soon as we saw it. It was the perfect blend of rustic, beauty, and charm. The main lodge is exquisite, and anything but rustic! It overlooks the lake, providing an amazing backdrop for getting married on the porch. We had about 115 people seated inside for our reception dinner and dancing, and easily could have fit more. The caterer we used, Famolare's, did an amazing job with cocktail hour then delicious food. The bartending service (you have to go with them as part of the Camp Kiwanee contract if you want booze) was friendly, flexible, and professional. Nicole was so helpful with office and logistic questions, and Jim the caretaker was super helpful with more specific questions about the buildings and grounds, and he was so great the day of. We rented out the pavilion and cabins; most of our friends opted to stay in the cabins, and we had an amazing afterparty in the pavilion, followed by a bagel brunch the next morning. We provided school bus transportation back to a hotel for our guests who wanted a hotel option. It was an amazing day that fulfilled all out wedding dreams. It wouldn't have happened without Camp Kiwanee or the amazing staff there!

We LOVED having our wedding at Camp Kiwanee! The location is both rustic and gorgeous, we were able to have many of our family and friends stay over in the campgrounds for a rockin afterparty, and we loved how flexible the staff was. The only vendor they require you to use is their own alcohol supplier, so we were able to bring in all our own vendors. Many people have really low-key weddings at the camp, but we had a slightly more swanky affair with a live funk band on their built-in stage and stations of small plate cuisine. It perfectly matched our vision of a funky fairy-tale ball! Highly recommended!!!!!

One thing to note - they say the venue can accommodate 200, but the main room felt pretty full with about 130 people and it was standing-room-only in the library when we had our ceremony on the porch. If you actually have 200 people, it would probably feel very crowded.

Camp Kiwanee was a beautiful venue. We couldn't have asked for friendlier people to work with. Nicole was available via email as often as we needed to assist in our planning and answer any questions we had. Jim also was extremely helpful at the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. They both were great and the venue itself speaks for itself. It was just beautiful. Thank you Camp Kiwanee (Nicole and Jim) for making our day perfect! E Shaw

We hosted our wedding ceremony and reception at the Pavilion in the South End camping area. We had a tent provided by A-Bee tents of Hanson for our over flow of guests, and Jason was great discussing where he felt would be the perfect place. Everyone we spoke with as the months flew by were overly accommodating. They made our set up so much easier by allowing us to store many of our things in the barn the night before. Our guests loved the laid back feeling of the wedding and that you weren't forced to be in any one spot. Whether it was boogieing on the dance floor, or having a group kazoo session by the bon-fire, it was perfect!

We had an amazing time at our wedding at Camp Kiwanee this weekend. If you want a fun, rustic, do-it-yourself wedding, it doesn't get any better than this. We had our ceremony on the large covered porch of the main lodge overlooking the lake. Everyone was telling us all night how much they loved the location. After the reception, the staff helped us build a bonfire and we hung out for hours. Many of our guests stayed overnight in the cabins, joined us for breakfast the next morning, relaxed on the beach and swam in the lake. I wholeheartedly recommend Camp Kiwanee!!

My husband and I were looking for a place to have our June wedding and were on a tight budget. We are crafty people and do a lot with a good base. Camp Kiwanee was just what we were looking for. We went on a Sunday to just see the lodge from the outside, as soon as we were standing on the platform looking out at the water, we knew it was the place for us.

Their flexibility on caterers was extremely helpful and their bartender service was reasonable. They always worked with us if we needed to come by and check something, or looking for a measurement.

I couldn't imagine our special day being anywhere else. The atmosphere was something our guests are still raving about.
