Why a Maine Camp?


Families have chosen Maine camps for their children for more than a century.

The state’s immense natural beauty – rivers and lakes, rugged mountains, nearly 3,500 miles of coastline – provides an incomparable setting for outdoor learning and adventure.  Maine camps go beyond wilderness immersion, they create environmental stewards and outdoors enthusiasts, and they also help develop skills in sports, visual and performing arts, even robots and rocketry. They foster growth in youngsters while instilling timeless values: teamwork, responsibility, and mutual respect.

Camps, whether public or private, share one mission.
