Y Summer Camp is the Y’s co-ed day camp located at the Y's 95-acre Outdoor Learning and Education Center (OLEC). A quintessential Maine day camp, Y Summer Camp boasts a large playing field, wooded areas, a brook and more.
Character-building is part of all Y Summer Camp activities, which include team-building, cooperative games, outdoor sports, and traditional camp activities like arts n' crafts, environmental education and archery. Our program is licensed by the State of Maine, and transportation to/from the Y and Y Summer Camp is provided.
This program is for children entering Grades 1-8 in the fall of 2021.
2021 Y Summer Camp Rates
Financial assistance is available for qualifying families.
Please Note: we make it a point to give every child the opportunity to experience camp. However, given the number of requests, we don’t have the funds available [thus the ability] to help send kids for a better part of – or the entire Summer. We are typically able to assist with 2-3 weeks of camp, per camper, applying some level of financial assistance – depending on what parents are able to contribute.
Please return your FA application, along with supporting financial documentation, to Chris Shea at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop off at the Y to my attention. I can also be reached at 207-795-4095 ext 206
