Camp Somerset for Girls
One of Maine’s premier summer camp for girls has returned to East Lake. With brand new facilities, leadership, and culture, Camp Somerset for Girls is dedicated to providing every camper with an increased sense of self-worth and the fulfillment that comes from the experiences and relationships of summer camp.

The Somerset program is designed to provide campers with fun and opportunity through a balance of elective activities, bunk activities, intracamp and intercamp competitions, day and overnight trips, community service projects, special events, and a comprehensive evening program that allows campers to display their talents, relax in the peacefulness of camp, or just be downright silly. Our broad range of activities allows campers to hone existing skills in the areas they are most passionate about and challenge themselves to try something new for the very first time. The comprehensive program provides opportunities for individual growth and achievement, and also teaches the virtues that can only be learned as part of a team and through healthy competition.

Most of all, the Somerset program creates opportunities for girls to feel empowered, encouraged, and inspired. We want our campers to take healthy risks and try something new. We want them campers to be good teammates and hold their heads high in both victory and defeat. We want them to put an arm around a friend in need and welcome one in return. We want them to be themselves and share their unique gifts. Above all else. we want them to experience these moments and create lifelong memories surrounded and uplifted by a community of friends, teachers, and role models.

I knew my daughter would be a true camper once she got over her fear of going but the experience she had at Somerset exceeded our every expectation. My daughter truly became the best version of herself at camp and that is something we will be forever grateful for. Somerset is just magic. I have no specific words or cannot describe their exact formula but when magic happens, greatness ensues. It was a home run, a slam dunk and then some!!

I don't know where to start with how pleased we were with our daughter's experience. She had the best time and gained some independence. The communication from Josh and Kate was wonderful. Keep up the good work!

The idea of having our daughter go to overnight camp was always exciting. The idea of having our daughter enjoy the beauty of Maine in a safe, friendly, inspiring, camp-setting is coming to fruition, because of Josh and Kate! The reality of my daughter going to Somerset is so comfortable and exciting for us because we know every detail of each day has been thoroughly planned by them. They have gone beyond what we had ever hoped for in a camp. We couldn't be happier or more confident with these 2 and their staff taking care of our daughter and giving her this experience! Yeah, Somerset 2018!

It's rare to find everything you want in a camp for your daughter. Camp Somerset has done it! Smart, energetic, warm/sincere directors. A mission to empower, encourage, and inspire girls. Beautiful lakefront. High-quality, clean, and safe facilities. Flexibility of schedule. Nice, friendly, active girls. Traditional sports, outdoor adventure and leisure activities. Go Somerset!

I can't think of a better duo of Directors to define the values, program, and future of a new camp. Kate and Josh's passion and enthusiasm can be seen in every piece of communication, the building designs, and the way they've already begun to blend new ideas with old traditions. Starting fresh provides such a unique opportunity to do it the way it should be done, rather than the way it always has been done. My daughter can't wait to be part of the very first summer and many more to come.
“I greatly enjoyed speaking with Laurie (Guide at Maine Camp Experience). Thanks to her guidance, ideas and suggestions we truly feel that our ultimate choice is the right one for us. We can trust that our seven year old daughter will have a wonderful summer!”
