Pine Tree Camp is now offering year-round fully accessible programming to keep Maine people with disabilities engaged, active and outdoors at Pine Tree Camp’s barrier-free campus on North Pond, or from the comfort of the camper’s home.

“Covid-19 has given us a chance to continue innovating and designing new, safe opportunities for our community to experience in all four seasons,” said Camp Director, Dawn Willard-Robinson. “We are Maine’s only ACA-accredited camp exclusively serving people with disabilities and no camper, or family, is ever turned away due to their inability to pay.”

Pine Tree Camp Adventure Day Pass – Open campus days for kids with disabilities and their families to safely immerse in the outdoors at Pine Tree Camp – with no barriers!  Kayak, swim, hike accessible nature trails, spend time in a real treehouse and take aim in the archery pavilion.  All activities are fully accessible and staff is on-hand to provide support.  These one-day passes are designed to provide safe, physically distant access to Pine Tree Camp’s campus for all Maine people with disabilities who want to experience the outdoors in a barrier-free setting during all four seasons.

Pine Tree Camp to You – A virtual camp experience from the comfort of home. The fun-filled curriculum is delivered online via Zoom by Pine Tree Camp’s experienced team and also includes self-guided activities providing campers the chance to connect with friends from all over the State of Maine in every season.  Materials are provided by Pine Tree Camp and mailed to the camper’s home.

NEW:  Family Recreation Weekends – Spend three days on the shore on North Pond with your family. This offering includes a cabin, meals and participation in specially developed day and evening programs. This exciting new offering is a great way to spend time unwinding in nature and enjoying all that camp has to offer in a safe and physically distanced way.

More about Pine Tree Camp:  Every year, hundreds of Maine children and adults with disabilities arrive at Pine Tree Camp in Rome and their lives are transformed. Driving down the camp road, campers enter a world that is barrier-free, leaving behind the confines of their disability thanks to the camp’s 285-acre, fully accessible year-round campus. Campers actively participate in all the activities for which Maine is famous – kayaking, boating, fishing, hiking, biking and snow shoeing – experiencing freedom and independence. Since 1945, Pine Tree Camp has welcomed all who could benefit, regardless of their ability to pay.  Pine Tree Camp receives no state or federal funding.
