“Maine is easy to get to and hard to leave.”

Camp families say that a highlight of choosing an MCE camp is their annual trip to Maine. With its spectacular scenery, world-class dining, quaint bed and breakfasts and unlimited outdoor adventures, a journey to Maine provides so much to see and do. No wonder millions people vacation here every year.


So many people enjoy the scenic drive to Maine— a trip that is much closer than you think. The drive time to Portland from Boston is less than two hours and from New York City it is about five hours.


All MCE Camps are about an hours drive from Maine’s major airport, Portland International Jetport. Portland offers direct flights from all three New York area airports as well as many other US cities. It is currently served by JetBlue, United, Delta, US Airways and Southwest.

A World Away

Alison said,

There is nothing like the sweet smell of pine in that Maine air or doing a cannonball into a lake. Maine is a world away. It is 3,000 miles from where we live and I wouldn't have it any other way.
