General Notes About Camps in the State of Maine

The largest cluster of summer camps in Maine resides in the southwestern portion of the state; which houses many inland lakes and forested terrain, providing an excellent setting for residential sleepaway camps. The largest cities in the state are Portland, Lewiston, Bangor, and Auburn ... all of which will reflect a relatively significant number of day camps.

The climate is generally very accommodating for youth camps with generally warm summers which are also humid, and have relatively fewer storms than most locations out east.

The Pine Tree State not only has a vast expanse of forests, it also houses Moosehead Lake, the largest lake which resides entirely in New England as well as Mount Katahdin - which is at the northern most point on the Appalachian Trail - providing an excellent venue for backpacking or wilderness camps to engage in various trips and adventures. Similarly, Arcadia National Park offers a great destination for exploration and summer camp activities. With close to 230 miles of coastal boundaries, Maine also affords summer programs the ability to engage in marine science summer activities as well as the existence of more focused sea camp.

The vast majority of Maine is comprised of forests and is relatively sparsely populated in terms of density; offering an abundant source of wildlife and natural fauna ... lending itself very well to outdoor summer programs.
