Camp Arawak is the main location of the original Sleepaway Camp.
The camp was operated by owner Uncle John. He hired Ronnie, Gene, Susie, Marie, Eddie and Jeff to supervise the many young adults working as counselors. Other staff included head cook Artie, assistant chef Ben, and four younger cooks. Mel hired a lifeguard, Hal, to supervise swimming sessions. Ricky, Judy, and Paul have been going there for a long time. According to Phoebe, this camp is about 60 miles from Camp Rolling Hills, which is changed to Camp New Horizons.
