Maine Summer Camps

As a state covered in lakes, forests, and adventurous terrain, trying to choose the perfect summer camp for your kids can be a little overwhelming. You can Google classic settings such as “overnight” camps vs. “day camps” or narrow them down by length, but it can still be unclear if you’re picking the right one.

Luckily for all of us, Maine has an extremely handy website with a “Find-a-Camp” tool that lets you narrow down a list of camps in Maine based on specific preferences. The website, Maine Summer Camps, also offers resources and tools for finding summer camp jobs and offers a summer camp blog to learn more about different locations, positions, and experiences.

Over 100 camps to choose from

The Find-a-Camp tool is super simple and user-friendly and has a listing of over 130 summer camps scattered across Maine. There’s a search bar to let you search for the keywords you want, or you can click the boxes and narrow your search based on the preferences listed.

You can refine your search according to the category if it is a day camp, an overnight stay or a trip; according to gender, whether mixed, family, boys or girls; session duration; scholarship fees; whether they offer financial assistance, special needs resources, or religion; and what kind of activities you want them to offer. Activities range from academics and tutoring, archery, sports, art, hiking, community service, drama, gardening, home repair, robotics, music, yoga, the list goes on.

Whatever your interests, the length of your camping trip, or your specific preferences, you’re sure to find the right person for the perfect summer camp in Maine. Forget the hassle of digging for the right camp and let Maine Summer Camps do it for you.
