Each summer since 1967, The Maine Children’s Home Summer Camp Support Program has made the dream of attending a summer camp a reality for underprivileged children throughout Maine.
In partnership with several accredited summer camps, including Camp Susan Curtis, Camp Tracy, Fair Haven Camps, Camp Mechuwana, and Friends Camp, MCH has been helping children make new friends, learn new skills, build self-esteem and independence, and overcome many of the hurdles they face while living in poverty.
You can help make an experience at camp a reality for a Maine child by donating to our Summer Camp Support Program.
The Summer Camp Support Program has changed. Families are encouraged to research and request applications from the summer camp of their choice (Camp Susan Curtis, Camp Tracy, Fair Haven Camps, Camp Mechuwana, and Friends Camp).
The Maine Children's Home for Little Wanderers provides assistance directly to the Summer Camps to support funding spaces at their camps. We have made this change so it is a simpler process for families.
If you would like to support The Maine Children’s Home Summer Camp Support Program or if you know of a child in need that could benefit from an overnight camping experience, please contact Rick Dorian at 207-873-4253 or by email.
JMG partners with Maine's public middle and high schools, community colleges, and university systems to help students reach their fullest potential. Each year, they choose a philanthropy project to help students give back to their local community. We were very fortunate that they have chosen to raise funds for the Summer Camp Program! Through "Coins for Camp" JMG partnered schools are aiming to donate their spare change so more Maine children can enjoy camp each summer!
