Social Responsibility

Social action is an important part of any MCE summer, and our camp directors incorporate activities and programs that instill a lifelong commitment to giving back.

The camps are incorporating programs to engage campers with even more causes and organizations they care about, like helping Max Cure Foundation fight pediatric cancer.

The "Dunk Your Kicks" partnership between Maine Camp Experience (MCE) and Max Cure Foundation (MCF) has been an incredible opportunity to engage campers in a social action program to help fight pediatric cancer. Campers were able to "dunk" their "kicks" (aka donate their used sneakers) at Maine camps to help raise money for research and treatment, help provide affordable footwear for those in need, and help the environment by keeping the sneakers out of landfills. So far, Maine camps have donated nearly 1,000 pairs of sneakers and we look forward to continuing the charge. Campers and counselors have also brought the Dunk Your Kicks program to their hometowns and schools.

Partners In Social Action

For years, MCE campers have been actively involved with a variety of amazing organizations, like Camp Sunshine, an MCE camp dedicated to kids with life threatening illnesses and their families. See the kind of work we’ve done, your campers can do, as well as get inspiration for the rest of the year!

It was my fifth summer this past year at camp. I return to camp every summer because of the amazing girls and kind counselors. The memories you make at camp are sure to last you forever. Camp is the place I can be my true self while having the best time with my best friends. The second camp ends, I count down the seconds until I can return next summer. The people at camp are the kindest and friendliest ever… Read More
