Family Camps in Maine

Families can "dip their toes into the water" to sample and enjoy Maine camps as part of a Maine travel destination experience — there are two noteworthy options: Family Camp and Rookie Camp.

Family Camp

Family Camp at Maine Camp Experience Camps is a unique and unforgettable vacation experience. It's an ideal opportunity for families to unplug, have fun and bond with each other while taking advantage of Maine's natural beauty and lakes, and the camps' incredible facilities, activities and instruction.

Family Camp includes lodging, meals and activities. Some camps include trips to local events and outdoor adventures. The camps' directors and staff are on hand to organize activities and games, as well as cook up and serve delicious Maine cuisine — including lobster! At Family Camp, participants enjoy recreational activities, including waterskiing, fishing, rock climbing, zip lining, archery, tennis lessons, arts and crafts, and more. There are even camp favorites like Apache Relay. For more relaxing times, "campers" can lounge by the lake or enjoy sunset campfires. No matter what they choose to do at Family Camp — families will create Maine memories to treasure. Following great Family Camp experiences, parents choose to send their kids to MCE summer camps.

Family Camp is open to the whole family; Mothers/Daughters; Fathers/Sons; current camper families; or prospective camp families. Family Camp experiences range from specific two-night weekend sessions to lengthier, more flexible stays.
