Camping originated in New England more than 150 years ago and these roots can be traced back to Maine. Maine boasts numerous premier camps, many having recently celebrated their 50th, 75th or 100th anniversaries. Our traditions, many of which stretch back for generations, make going to summer camp here a truly unique and unforgettable experience.
There is something magical about Maine camp traditions. Knowing that past generations sang the same songs, climbed the same mountains and canoed the same rivers are special feelings shared by scores of children who have forged lasting memories at Maine camps.
MCE Camps take great pride in this rich history. There is something uniquely special about the Maine Camp Experience.
