Maine Traditional Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Maine Traditional Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Maine traditional summer camps introduce kids and teens to a variety of different sports, arts, enrichment, and special events activities throughout the summer. Whether it's scoring on the lacrosse field, sculpting at arts and crafts, or swimming on a private lake, campers can do it all at Maine traditional summer camps. Maine summer camps are staffed by teachers, educators, and coaches who provide quality instruction and supervision as campers travel to various activities.

There are many subtle differences that distinguish Maine traditional summer camps from each other. Some camps allow campers to choose their own schedule (these camps are called "free choice" programs), while others offer a structured program preselected by the camp. Some Maine traditional camps offer religious programs, while others are nondenominational. When it comes to competition, some camps are strictly non-competitive, while others encourage healthy competition to help campers improve. Regardless of the program that families choose, traditional summer camps help boys, girls, and teens make friends, build confidence, and enjoy an incredible summer experience in the great outdoors!

Ages, Tuition, and Session Length at Maine Traditional Summer Camps

Overnight traditional summer camps in Maine typically accommodate campers between the ages of 7 and 17 (elementary, middle, and high school students in grades 3 through 12). Most programs group campers by age and grade to maximize learning and social opportunities.

Most Maine traditional sleep-away camps run 1 week, 2 week, 3 week, 4 week, and 7 week sessions. The cost of Maine traditional summer camps can vary considerably by instructors, location, facilities, and affiliations, but most programs fall between $400 and $1,500 per week.

Choosing the Best Maine Traditional Summer Camp

There are many important questions your family should consider when choosing a Maine traditional summer camp. Does the program offer a variety of activities, or do they concentrate on just a few specialties? Does the camp encourage competition, and if so, at what level? Do campers choose their own schedule, or does the camp provide one for them? What is the average age of the staff? What is the camp's staff and camper annual return rate? What values does the camp look to instill by the end of the summer? Knowing which program elements will suite your children best is essential to choosing a great traditional camp.
