Discovering Abilities Together

Pine Tree Camp

At Pine Tree Camp, children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities experience freedom, independence and life-changing experiences through barrier-free access to the outdoors. Our 285-acre campus in the heart of the Belgrade Lakes Region is fully accessible. We are Maine’s only American Camp Association-accredited camp for people with disabilities. Parents love our 3:1 camper to counselor ratio and the way we seamlessly accommodate individual campers’ needs so they can fully participate in anything they would like to try.
