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 incorporate programs to engage campers with important causes and organizations like helping Max Cure Foundation fight pediatric cancer, collaborating with Camp Sunshine which supports children with life-threatening illnesses and their families, and partnering with World of Change to help collect spare change for social action initiatives for children and families in need.

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.

One of my many favorite camp memories is laying in my hammock in the pine trees outside my cabin, laughing and talking and just hanging out with my friends. I’ve met so many great friends at Wyonegonic. We were doing a lot of nothing, but I’m so busy all school year that it felt so good to just hang out with such special people in such a special place. I love Wyo so much and can’t wait to get back … Read More
