The Maine Office of Tourism states: “there is no surprise that Maine has a national reputation when it comes to camping. Few other states in the East can offer the kind of wilderness opportunities that exist in the Pine Tree State. Hundreds of thousands of acres of the North Woods remain undeveloped, providing outdoor enthusiasts with a vast playground of mountains and lakes, rivers and forest. Camping is a long and beloved tradition here.”
Maine camps provide children with endless outdoor opportunities, challenges and experiences. From the peaks of Baxter State Park—a 205,000-acre wilderness sanctuary, to the remote waterways of the Allagash and St. Croix rivers, to the adrenaline rush of rafting down the gorges of the Kennebec, to the thrill of rappelling down the craggy cliffs of Acadia National Park, Maine has it all.
