Did you know…Camp O-AT-KA is rated as one of the top ten camps in the country? Founded in 1906. Camp O-AT-KA is situated on the western shore of Lake Sebago near Portland, Maine.
The wide variety of individual pursuits, team activities, and daily camp gatherings provide a well-rounded experience to every camper.

Boys have been coming to Camp O-AT-KA for 100 years to grow closer to the natural world and to one another. They explore trails and sharpen skills together. They share triumphs and troubles, and learn important values as members of a close-knit cabin group and a wider camp community – values like patience and respect for others’ points of view, doing their fair share and helping others in need – life skills that are part of the personal growth that we want for every boy. Camp O-AT-KA is a place where boys can form life-long friendships.
