Our Boston camp has been featured on the Top 50 Best Camps in the Country and it is a truly iconic summer camp! Nestled on a picturesque 200-acre peninsula of lush forest in Winslow, ME, you won’t find another camp that is literally surrounded by breathtaking lakefront views at every turn. While the camp has been around since 1923, all of the bunks have been remodeled for comfort and the athletic facilities remain state-of-the-art, with new additions each summer. The spacious cabins are set together as a village in the woods, just a short walk away from the dining hall and the lakefront. Each cabin has 10 - 15 beds, each with storage space for all your belongings and costumes!
We start each day with a healthy breakfast including eggs, bacon, pancakes, hot and cold cereals, juices, fresh fruit, yogurt and tons of coffee (and, of course, mimosas & Bloody Marys). For lunch and dinner, our chefs prepare delicious gourmet takes on traditional camp classics. You’ll find menu items including barbequed baby back ribs, rosemary skirt steak, chicken, corn on the cob, fish tacos, veggie burritos and more. Each meal is accompanied by healthy salads, fresh fruit and other side dishes. In addition to our standard menu, we offer gluten-free, vegetarian and other options for those with dietary concerns and restrictions.
The beautiful thing about having 'no counselors' is that you can make your weekend whatever you want it to be! We encourage our campers to jump into the camp experience and fill their days with sports and crafts, but if you want to lay out on the lakeside and sunbathe with a new friend, feel free.

While the activities are all “fun and games” during the day, our open bar takes the weekend experience to the next level. At breakfast, we have a Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar; beer and wine available at lunches, and from happy hour throughout the night, we have a full service open bar. In the evenings, we bring in world class DJ's and up-and-coming bands to play intimate, unforgettable shows. Since there's no party more fun than a costume party, we introduce themes for each bash well before the camp weekend, so everyone can prepare for the parties. The themes have ranged from "Superheroes and Villains" to “Jock Jams”, to “Wet Hot American Summer” and beyond. While we do have an 'open bar' available throughout the course of the weekend, we do not serve alcohol in between meals as we take the safety of our campers during our activity periods very seriously.
