Camp Skylemar
At Skylemar, smiles are big and laughs are loud! For the past six decades, campers ages 7-15 come from across the globe to enjoy Skylemar’s 200 acres of athletic fields, waterfront, indoor facilities, spectacular mountain views and breathtaking sunsets. Each day is an adventure with an ever-changing schedule of land and water sports, arts, trips, outdoor exploration and non-stop fun.Best known for our handpicked staff of well-qualified teachers and collegiate athletes, there is a staff to camper ratio of 1:2. Skylemar counselors are committed to safety, role-modeling and making a positive difference for each individual boy. There’s top-notch instruction, team competition, private lessons and just-for-fun games, all in a nurturing atmosphere which values sportsmanship and kindness above all else.At Skylemar, campers learn much more than how to play a game. They learn teamwork, independence, how to build character and how to be a good friend. They learn to be a leader, how to make wise decisions, sportsmanship and self-confidence. Long after the season is over, Skylemar becomes an enduring part of who you are. Campers grow into well-rounded, successful, confident young men, who know how to be the best they can be.

How can I choose just one memory from seven of the best summers of my life at Skylemar? One singular memory that stands out: the walk back to the bunk from the Rec Hall with my bunkmates on our last night as campers. We started the walk in smiles, then sobbed like babies at the thought of leaving a place that had really become our home, and ended the walk in bittersweet smiles again. Thanks to Skylemar, I met the greatest group of guys in the world. I'm always going to be thankful for my experiences there and for those who made those memories possible.

While I didn't know it at the time, Camp Skylemar helped make me the person I am today. What I never thought; however, was how great the experience would be for me to send my son to Skylemar, and watch him grow and experience what many people believe is "The greatest place on earth!" The campers believe that they work 10 months in school to live 2 months in Maine! Being one of the only boys from central New Jersey, my son has been able to create his own identity at Skylemar. 2014 will be his fifth summer in Naples, and Shep and Arleen Shepherd have certainly carried on the fine tradition of founders Lee Horowitz and Herb Blumenfeld, along with adding many of their own, making Skylemar a fun, nurturing and safe place to learn and grow each summer. My son has developed such confidence which I feel is a direct result fostered by the friendships he's created and the people he's come in contact with at Skylemar. There's a saying that at Skylemar, you don't just sign up for the summer, you sign on for life. It's certainly the case!

We love visiting Noah on Visiting Day at Camp Skylemar---to see him run, carefree, with all his campmates reminds me of the special experience that camp brought for me. Noah's favorite part of camp is Color War----when he came home from camp, it took him days to agree to not wear his Color War ribbon. His team didn't even won Color War but the bonding, hard work and teamwork was such a unique experience for him.

I'll never forgot dropping my oldest off for his first "proposed" four week session at Camp Skylemar. I got into the car and looked at my husband and told him, "Zach isn't coming home after four weeks. He's staying the summer." And he did.

On visiting day, watching my son try the ropes course for the first time. He was completely determined to try the highest course at camp and was so happy when he did it successfully.

My son has spent six summers in Maine at Camp Skylemar, and each year has truly just gotten better and better. Every summer when we drive up to visit him, we slowly shed our city skins as we enter the state and the beauty of Maine washes over us. There is just something different about the air, the sky and the colors in Maine. It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen, and I am so grateful the my son has been able to spend part of his summers here year after year. Going to Skylemar has been one of the most important and formative aspects of my son's life. While he definitely gets a full menu of sports and fun in the sun, the magic of Skylemar emanates from owners, Arleen and Shep, who love and give and share in a manner I've never experienced. Caring for others, the importance of sportsmanship and brotherhood, and an appreciation for the natural beauty of going to camp in Maine are values that are instilled in the young men of Skylemar, and have had a huge impact on my son. My son counts the days until camp begins then spends the "best weeks of the whole year" (his words, not mine...) in one of the "best places on earth" (again, his words!) We love what Skylemar has given our son and our family: a lifetime of memories that include swimming in a crystal clear lake, seeing the brightest stars in the sky -- and the feeling that summer is never sweeter than being at Skylemar.
“I greatly enjoyed speaking with Laurie (Guide at Maine Camp Experience). Thanks to her guidance, ideas and suggestions we truly feel that our ultimate choice is the right one for us. We can trust that our seven year old daughter will have a wonderful summer!”
