One of the most extraordinary parts about attending overnight camp in Maine is the amazing trips campers get to take. Maine campers hike, mountain bike, raft, kayak, canoe, camp out, rock climb, and more to explore all the natural beauty that exists in the Pine Tree state.
Campers connect with nature, build self-reliance, and create unforgettable memories. They learn to assemble tents and campsites, start and safely manage fire, cook at the campfire, work as a team, and challenge themselves. Trips range from closer and shorter one-day trips to further and more extended trips – especially as campers get older and more experienced.
Some highlights, just to name a few, include:
- Hike on the Appalachian Trail
- Summit Cadillac Mountain to experience sunrise at Acadia National Park
- Mountain bike at Mt Abram
- Canoe through the Allagash Wilderness Waterway
- Kayak on the Saco River
- Raft on the Kennebec River
So, when your child attends camp in Maine, they not only enjoy life at the camp, but also get to enjoy incredible natural sights beyond.
