Friends Camp offers overnight camp programs for children and teens ages 7-17 in South China, Maine. We celebrate community, Quaker values, play, and exploring the outdoors.

Friends Camp strives to be a special place where youth have time for play and for reflection, with creative arts, non-competitive games, waterfront activities, drama, discussion, and many other interesting and creative activities. We are a diverse and caring community that nurtures the unique personality each camper brings to camp.

Each session is full of many options, such as swimming, sailing, canoeing, crafts, games, and an overnight expedition to Jones Island on China Lake. Some of our campers come from Quaker families, and many hail from other backgrounds. We welcome youth of all faiths as well as those who identify with no particular faith at all. With our four-to-one camper-to-staff ratio, Friends Camp is a wonderful place for friendships to sprout and grow.

Our youth camp sessions usually accommodate 110 campers, with about 30 counselors and 10-15 additional support staff members. We offer 4, 2-week sessions (with a 1-week option for young children).
