Maine Teen Camp
Established in 1984, Maine Teen Camp (MTC) is a progressive summer camp for teenagers only (13 - 17) that retains the sense of community and belonging of a traditional camp, but without the social barriers for a teen starting at a more traditional, broader age-range camp.Our focus is on the unique developmental and social needs of teenagers. The camp population is 225 campers per session, all between the ages of 13-17. MTC is a multicultural community, representing campers from all over the USA and the world. Our campers are placed in cabin groups according to grade levels in school. Our campers experience a broad range of activities, make new friends, and meet new challenges in a supportive and safe environment. MTC is a private, family owned overnight camp, located in beautiful south-western Maine. The property is almost completely surrounded by water. Our main lodge is the focal point of camp, overlooking Stanley Pond.Our mission is to provide each individual with a diverse camp experience in a safe and supportive environment that promotes emotional, social, intellectual, and physical development. MTC aims to improve confidence, resilience and independence; provide the motivation to explore new opportunities; and develop leadership abilities. Collectively this fosters a summer of personal growth, challenges, friendships, and adventure. Maine Teen Camp and its staff empower campers to make good choices and become successful community members and responsible and resilient young adults.

I attended MTC for four years and I can confidently say that it was the best four summers of my life. I gained so much insight on my passions and who I am. I made some of the best friends I've ever had and still talk and hang out with them if I can. Being able to meet people from all over the world makes it such an all enveloping and encouraging environment. Its such a magical place and I wish I could stay there year round. The counselors are amazing and the heads of camp are the best! If you are considering attending, JUST GO! You will not regret it.

It’s funny how ‘home’ can be found so far away from home. We call MTC home, not in the sense that we grew up here, or simply because smiles never vanish, not even because happiness experienced at camp changes us in ways we may never know. We call MTC home, because home is more than just a location, home is even more than where your heart is. Home is where barriers of emotion and thought are nonexistent, it’s where you feel secure, it’s where you feel loved and accepted, where you have people who support you through thick and thin, and it’s where you spend the best days of your life. However, exclusively to MTC, home is where we all come from the closest and farthest reaches of the world to forget all that is behind us, to make eternal memories and friends by our natural abilities to be social, and to utilize perhaps one of the only opportunities we will ever have to reinvent ourselves, yet also discover more about ourselves. Most important of all, it’s where at some point or another we realize you cannot always be at home, but you can always feel at home. It’s why MTC is home for me, for you, and for all campers and staff to come.

Dear All At Maine Teen Camp I wanted to write to you all to thank you for giving Robert the experience of a lifetime. He has come home a much more mature and contented young man, and I feel that he has learnt an enormous amount from his experiences at camp. He has forged unique and special friendships that will sustain him through many years to come. We have been listening to all the wonderful things that he did during his stay and it sounds completely amazing - I am jealous. He has matured and grown this summer and I know he feels blessed to have had this experience. Thank you all for your kindness, enthusiasm and patience - MTC is a unique and wonderful place and long may you continue to provide such life changing experiences to the teens that visit you. Robert will be back...... Thank you. Tracy

MTC is literally heaven on earth, my four years at Maine Teen Camp; ,2008, 2009,2010, 2011 were the best experiences of my life. I have experienced so many life changing experiences in my years at maine teen camp. I had many friendships many of which I am still in touch with today. From the ropes course and spaghetti ropes, to the chance to be in a band and record music in a recording studio, to wake boarding, waterskiing, waterfront, to all the land sports, evening programs, hanging out in the lodge with all of camp during a storm. Evening meetings, morning meetings, off camp trips. There is not a single thing that I could favor over another. Maine Teen Camp helped me grow as a person, as a individual and helped me to realize the bigger and better things about life and what having true friendships mean! I don't regret anything about my years at Maine Teen Camp and I would recommend it to anybody in a heartbeat!

Best summer camp experience ever! Our son is returning this year as a counselor in training. Highly recommend this camp.
“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!”
