Maine summers are warm and inviting, with comfortable temperatures averaging 78°F/26°C during the day and 66°F/18°C in the evening. Maine has one of the most comfortable statewide summer climates in the continental United States. MCE campers enjoy a climate of warm temperate days and cool, pleasant nights.
Maine boasts more than 2500 crystal-clear, spring-fed lakes, each more breathtaking than the next. With average lake temperatures of 75°-80°F (24°-26°C), they are warm and inviting. Maine lakes are simply the most spectacular in the country. They are at the core of each camp's program and along these shores MCE camps have built the finest waterfront facilities in America. The result: unparalleled program opportunities for campers unlike anything else. From waterskiing and wakeboarding, to sailing and paddle-boarding, to canoeing and kayaking, and swimming and fishing—the opportunities are endless.
Beyond lakes, Maine boasts hundreds of rivers and streams in some of the most picturesque spots on earth. Maine’s white sandy beaches dot its 3400-mile unspoiled coastline which, if stretched end-to-end, would surpass the distance between New York to California.
Maine is spectacularly beautiful and calm, providing the perfect back drop to disconnect from the daily schedules of school and work. I think its the hill-surrounded lakes that are the best part. As a kid, I'm sure I didn't appreciate the beauty but I loved playing in Coffee Pond at Camp Cedar with all of my friends. I love that my son is now spending his days laughing with his buddies under the towering pine trees.
