Camp KidsWelcome to the Y!

Camping, like many Y programs, is about learning skills, developing character and making friends.

Few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities.

Camping teaches self-reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all amidst the fun of camp fires, bugle calls, canoeing, archery, talent shows, and meaningful relationships. Y counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.

Maine's Y's offer a variety of Overnight, Day, and Specialty camps that offer something for everyone.
