Maine Summer Camps

As a state covered in lakes, forest, and adventurable terrain, it can be a little overwhelming trying to choose the perfect summer camp for your kids. You can Google the classic parameters like “overnight” versus “day” camps or narrow it down based on length, but it can still be hard to know if you’re choosing the right one.

Lucky for us all, Maine has an extremely convenient website with a “Find-a-Camp” tool that allows you to narrow down a list of camps in Maine based on specific preferences. The website, Maine Summer Camps, also has resources and tools for finding jobs at summer camps and offers a Summer Camp Blog to learn about the varying places, positions, and experiences.
