Since 1967, Maine Children’s Home has been helping to support thousands of children and youth to explore the joys and enrichment of summer camp in Maine. Maine Children’s Home has been assisting children to attend these 5 accredited summer camps:
Camp Mechuwana in Winthrop, Camp Susan Curtis in Stoneham, Camp Tracy in Oakland, Fairhaven Camps in Brooks, and The Friends Camp in South China.
Maine Children’s Home no longer accepts or directs applications for summer camp but will be directly supporting these summer camps with donations we have received that are specifically designated for summer camp.
Many local recreation programs are offering some activities and a limited number of camps may also be offering day camps. All the camps we are in communication with are exploring ways to meet the evolving needs of campers, families, volunteers, staff members, and local communities for this coming season.
In the meantime, please visit the summer camp web addresses below to learn more about their specific plans. We will be reaching out to the camps and providing direct support to them to help cover some youth summer experiences and operating expenses.

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!
