Camp Mission & Philosophy:
Our values-based program is carefully structured to promote a warm and welcoming camp community. Careful attention to detail and thoughtful respect for each other and the outdoors create a uniquely positive atmosphere for youth development.
What factors set this camp apart from other camps?
Down to earth, wholesome, warm community, completely elective instructionally-based program, wide variety of activities. Geographically diverse population. Fantastic waterfront and lake.
We feel one of the greatest things about Kamp is the opportunity to “be yourself” and explore what that means in a supportive, tolerant, nurturing environment — without screen time, social media, pressures or reputations/images from home, We limit the number of campers from any one school or location, and encourage them to try new things with new people and find/develop their best selves. We help kids learn and go as far as they’d like in whatever they are interested in. Our staff provide meaningful connections with positive, wholesome adult role models. Lots of nice people, attention to detail and planning give participants high quality, meaningful experiences.
What is unique about the experience campers receive:
Time away from screens and social media. Resilience, self-confidence, independence, new friends, fresh air experiences. (Trip days are all nature oriented and explore Maine.)
