Maine is closer than you think. Traveling from Boston to any MCE camp is only a 2-3 hour drive. Flying to Maine is just as convenient. A quick 45-minute flight from any New York airport to Portland makes Maine really just around the corner. Portland is also easily accessible from any US Airport.
The Journey to Camp
Children arrive to MCE camps from all over the world and camp directors arrange all the details. Campers can be dropped off at camp, take a motorcoach from their hometown area or fly into Boston or Portland airports, the central meeting points. Additionally, there are counselor-chaperoned flights from cities throughout the US.
The summer begins the very moment the children step onto the bus or arrive at the airport. Friendships from past seasons are instantly rekindled while new campers—with the help and guidance of nurturing staff—quickly assimilate into their camp culture and community. As these buses head to camp, a sense of excitement and anticipation fills the air.
