CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Skylemar was founded in 1948 by Lee Horowitz and Herb Blumenfeld. Summer camp brought them together, with Lee serving as Herb’s counselor. From that moment on, as they say, “the rest is history”. An enduring, 60-year friendship was formed, and with it, a committed desire to create an environment which would foster, nurture, and cultivate the same type of life-long relationship that they had experienced.

Herb and Lee set the standard for comradeship. They developed boys of character through a sports-oriented program which emphasized kindness. Their formula was magical: Bring young boys together with collegiate role models in a pristine location, offer outstanding instruction and team play, and focus on lifetime lessons of compassion, friendship, independence, leadership and appreciation.

Today, Directors Shep and Arleen Shepherd (Lee's Daughter) are completely committed to each individual camper. Along with Assistant Director George Simeon and the Senior Staff of teachers and coaches, they never lose sight of the fact that parents have entrusted Skylemar with their most precious possession. The leadership team of Skylemar does everything in their power to see that each child has a safe, fun and wholesome summer experience.

Giving a child the opportunity to experience sleepaway camp is one of the most influential gifts a parent can bestow. No doubt, it’s a tremendous leap of faith to entrust your son to others. At Skylemar, we cherish the honor of a summer with your child, and do everything we possibly can to give him a safe, great experience of a lifetime. Each summer, boys from across the U.S. and abroad become life-long friends at Skylemar. Our spirit of friendship and kindness connects everyone at camp. Camp Skylemar is an ACA accredited camp.

Many years ago, we were the first company serving young adults to require that all leaders have a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) medical certification. WFR training is far more advanced than standard first aid or wilderness first aid. In addition to this certification, we carry extensive first aid kits on all of our programs that include antibiotics and epinephrine. Contents, protocols, and standing orders are reviewed and updated every year by our Medical Director who is an MD.

Since our inception, RLT has been on the cutting edge of technological advances in communication. We began carrying Iridium satellite phones on all of our programs as soon as they were available.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Our campers learn that people care about them and that honesty, consideration and fair play are real. We emphasize participation rather than winning and aim to strengthen campers’ self-esteem and resilience. Each child is facilitated to recognize, develop and increase his/her own abilities and learns to use those abilities to address challenges he/she faces. We treat each child equally while also recognizing that every child is unique.

Traditional Overnight Camp program is for campers ages 8-13 who have an option to attend one or two of our TWO-WEEK sessions (please see the Summer 2015 Schedule). The goals for each of the activities are to create an intentional experience through age specific, life-skills oriented, programming. Each program is educational so our campers learn important life skills (such as tolerance, respect, leadership, etc.) while having fun.

Agassiz Village traditional daily activities include but are not limited to: instructional and recreational swimming, arts & crafts, nature and outdoor living skills, sports and fitness, drama, dance, high and low ropes courses, canoeing and others. All of these programs are developed and lead by qualified and experienced instructors. Each camper group will go through at least five different scheduled activities every day during their session with each day ending with a different evening activity that will range from small group (cabin) activities to all camp events and celebrations. Through these every day programs as well as special/theme days and events we strive to provide a well-rounded experience for each of our campers that is fun and meaningful.

Teen Advancement Program (TAP) is a unique opportunity that offers more advanced programming and growth opportunities for our older campers. It is for those campers who are 14+ years old. It is an intentional two-week program focused on teen leadership skills development and community service. The first week of the session will focus on various leadership topics and skills like: group building, goal setting, teamwork, tolerance and compromise, integrity, role modeling, community service, etc. The second week will focus on service and learning projects. Campers in this program will also enjoy more responsibility and choice in the traditional A.V. camp experiences like swimming, canoeing, dance, sports, evening and other activities as part of the overall Agassiz Village community. The goal of this program is to raise our camper self-identity and awareness and develop specific leadership skills and values through purposeful experiential education to fulfill our mission: Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Leaders!

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Internship for Staff Training, Education, and Placement (INSTEP) is a 4-week, tuition free program for a select group of 16-17 year old teens seeking hands-on leadership skills development and potential future employment with Agassiz. Each candidate is required to apply for the position and is interviewed prior to their selection. Two weeks of training focus on general leadership and job skills development. During these weeks participants engage in a set of hands-on workshops on teamwork, group forming and dynamics, conflict management skills, leadership styles, and career and college workshops. Additionally, they actively participate and lead various activities.

We will also have a college admissions officer from University of Southern Maine do a ‘Dean For A Day’ workshop. This interactive workshop focuses on college application importance and assessment by looking at a number of actual applications and discussing their strong and weak points. This provides an opportunity for the 16-17 year old participants to look at the realities of college applications and what they need to start focusing on in order to successfully get into the college of their choice. The other two weeks participants work as Jr. Counselors and program assistants.

As Jr. Counselors they assist a Agassiz Cabin Counselor with the day-to-day activities of a cabin group and live together with the group for a week. All participants who successfully complete the program will receive a scholarship, the amount based on their performance, to be used to further their education and leadership opportunities.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Financial aid available to all through sliding scale financial aid rates (posted on our website). Session rates start at $125 and depend on family's annual income and household size.

The brand new camper cabins sleep 11 campers and 3 counselors and include an entryway mud room, private bedside drawer, and hanging space, in-cabin bathrooms with three private showers, ample lofted storage space, tons of natural light through a big picture window, and a back door leading to a private cabin "backyard."

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The Somerset program is designed to provide campers with fun and opportunity through a balance of elective activities, bunk activities, intracamp and intercamp competitions, day and overnight trips, community service projects, special events, and a comprehensive evening program that allows campers to display their talents, relax in the peacefulness of camp, or just be downright silly.

Our broad range of activities allows campers to hone existing skills in the areas they are most passionate about and challenge themselves to try something new for the very first time. The comprehensive program provides opportunities for individual growth and achievement, and teaches virtues that can be learned only as part of a team and through healthy competition.

Somerset’s scheduling system ensures that each camper has a well-rounded day filled with time in or on the water, on the fields, and engrossed in a creative activity. Younger campers have a more structured schedule, guaranteeing exposure to everything Somerset has to offer. As campers mature, they’ll have more choices in their schedules, so they can spend more time doing what they love most.

Our goal is for your daughter to return home with greater self-confidence, stronger bonds with her peers, and an increased ability to manage pressure and live a happy, healthy, and inspired life.

CAMP FACILITIES: Some sites are at schools or in community centers where we have grassy playgrounds with large outdoor areas, classrooms, and gymnasiums. Please visit our website for lots of camp photos and videos.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: In 1999, I was directing science camps for the Children’s Museum of Maine and had taught science at Scarborough Middle School and Westbrook College and was (and still am) a docent at the Portland Museum of Art. I told my family I wanted to create experiences for children that melded my love of science with my passion for art. My husband replied: “Science and art—sounds like Leonardo DaVinci!” Certified teachers collaborated
with me to develop a science and arts curriculum with theme-based programs and The DaVinci Experience was born!

At DaVinci Experience camps, whether it’s dinosaurs, drawing or building catapults, your children will follow their passions or discover new ones. They’ll make friends with children who may attend their local school or be visiting from another state or country. Campers will find mentors who inspire them to try new things and they’ll have the opportunity to explore new themes each week.

Mature, experienced teachers lead small groups of similar aged campers. Our low camper to staff ratio allows your children to fully participate in hands-on science activities, art projects and outdoor games. Their experiences are enriched by meeting guests from the community, as diverse as doctors and veterinarians to dancers and African drummers.

At DaVinci Experience we are building an inclusive community of learners and we would love to have your family join us!

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Debate Camp has provided summer programming in debate, public speaking and Model United Nations simulation since 2002. Built by experienced educators, we believe in providing an academic enrichment opportunity to youth across Canada and the Northeastern United States via a set of exceptionally well-organized, safe and accredited summer camps. At Debate Camp, we provide a fun and inspiring space for youth to develop some timelessly-important skills; to hear opposing views and to confidently articulate their ideas well in the company of others.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Academics, and more. Public Speaking & Debate

CAMP LOCATION: Debate Camp sets up in academic spaces that allow for a healthy mix of indoor and outdoor activity. Camps are located at independent schools / universities throughout Northeastern US and across Canada - full view at:
Our Camp Website Link: www.debatecamp.com
Our Camp Website Link: www.debatecamp.com

CAMP FACILITIES: Day Camps operate at independent schools; indoor-outdoor programming, safe accredited, inspected and well-supervised spaces. OVERNIGHT CAMP 2022 is 7 day / 6 night traditional camp experience in the beautiful Niagara Peninsula region of Ontario; Our Camp Website Link: www.debatecamp.com

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Debate Camp creates a learning experience that is safe, welcoming, fun, and intellectually-engaging. Our program is meant to appeal to all ability levels, from the reluctant speaker to the already-accomplished debater.

We believe that learning is best served by engaging students in an academic experience, while at the same time ensuring they feel empowered to take risks.

We believe that "camp" creates a novel and secure learning environment in which campers feel safe to try new skills, think on their feet, see the opposing view, and to trust their teammates. Campers repeatedly inform us of how successful their academic experiences are - after Debate Camp, largely because they felt emboldened and confident in their ability to engage in discourse on subjects they felt unsure about only weeks previous. " I learned so much" is the most consistent feedback we get.

We feel that debating is not an elite skill for competition purposes only. Nor is it something that should be oversold / overcharged for the purpose of enhancing the college application process. We believe that to have advocacy skills, an ability with rhetoric, an ability to effectively organize one's thoughts, an ability to listen and be heard and to honour one's opponents with effective points and counter-points, are skills that all kids should develop.

As such, we annually review our fee scale to ensure we remain within reach of as many families as possible. We continue to work on funding and recruitment structures so that we may continue to remove barriers to enrichment education.

Moreover, we remain about training in the area of verbal advocacy; to stand, speak and be heard - an area requiring continued attention at a time when digital means provide so many alternatives to this. In the generation of the smart phone, of potentially less human-to-human conversation over substantial matters, what we teach is even more coveted...

Education has forever operated on a belief in the skills, ability and good intention of the future generation. Debate Camp is honoured to be invested in this work.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Academics, Fine Arts/Crafts, Basketball, Baseball, Swimming, Tennis, Waterfront/Aquatics, Sailing, Team Sports, Wilderness/Nature, and more. Archery, Bushcraft, Canoeing, Campcraft, Kayaking, Lacrosse, Library, Mountain Biking, Nature, Rowing, Windsurfing, & Woodshop

CAMP LOCATION: Birch Rock Camp is located in Waterford, Maine. With its towering pines and pristine Lake McWain, Birch Rock offers a breathtaking setting for camping.

CAMP FACILITIES: Boys aged 7 to 15 enjoy swimming in pristine Lake McWain, mastering new skills, and playing games on the fields with sweeping views of the Oxford Hills Maine. Boys live in cosy whitewashed cabins where cooperation is key. Our motto, "Help The Other Fellow," becomes a way of life for all.

Birch Rock provides a nurturing place where boys can truly enjoy boyhood, disconnect from the electronic world, and reconnect to the natural wonders of life.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The Birch Rock Community is distinguished by the many campers and counselors (3 to 1 ratio) who return each year, and even for decades. Birch Rockers are committed to being the finest mentors and passing on our values and cherished traditions to generations of campers to come.

Birch Rock celebrates the character development of its campers. Our motto Help the Other Fellow is the foundation of our community.

Birch Rock's mission is to build self-confidence and character in its boys.

A proud and accredited member of the American Camp Association and active partner with Maine Summer Camps.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Birch Rock’s Senior Camper and Counselor-In-Training programs provide opportunities for a selective group of young gentlemen to contribute to the positive growth and development of the camp community and cultivation of future leadership. Each summer, we accept individuals who demonstrate promise, champion civility, and have a sincere passion for the values of building community.

A Senior Camper (ages 15-16) typically returns to Birch Rock eager for a summer experience with a capstone of advanced achievement in one or two activities – i.e. swimming the Whale, a mastery in primitive skill development or target sports, or any activity he wishes to achieve with exceptional excellence. Additionally, he and his peers work together in mentoring younger campers who are new to Birch Rock and need a “BRC Buddy” to help adjust to residential camping. Senior Campers are learning to lead and are the ultimate role-models of the camp. They provide community service inside and outside of the camp, lead by example in terms of daily chores – i.e. inspection, table set-up, servicing at meal time, and all camp activity events.

A Counselor-In-Training, CIT (age 17) is still classified as a camper, but has limited apprentice-leadership roles working with children. A CIT will experience a variety of life-long learning skill sets including: fostering his communication skills, conflict resolution, time management and learning when you need to ask for additional support. CITs receive specific training and certification in basic first-aid, CPR, American Red Cross Lifeguarding, fundamental counseling skills in cabin management and activity skill planning. Successful CIT candidates often become Birch Rock Camp’s strongest counselors because they have demonstrated the genuine passion to give back to the community, and make their own mark in support of our motto: Help the Other Fellow. Moreover, CITs develop life skills of parenting, team-work, listening and helping themselves and each other to feel more confident and comfortable as future camp leaders.

Microscopes, magnifiers, binoculars, and our own eyes will help us explore the sky, land, water, and even the soil beneath our feet. The week will include plenty of science experiments and crafts.

Our Music, Games, and Soccer camp is a 5-day summer program that offers soccer fundamentals, musical activities, and fun games. The children will engage in making music, rhythmical exercises that promote coordination, and games with sound. The children will have an opportunity to make instruments and play the xylophone, drums, and ukulele. Come kick the soccer ball around, learn some techniques, and have some fun!

Mature and Experienced Leaders: Our teachers are caring and mature adults, many of whom are Waldorf-trained teachers.

Beautiful Location: Our 5 acres of meadows, woods, and playground are the perfect relaxed setting for children to spend their summer days.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Each camp is different weeks through June 20 - July 25th.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: ACTIVITIES At Kamp Kohut, we have an elective program. That means you can choose your own schedule each week. There are 50+ different activity choices! Before you come to camp, you'll complete an activity sign-up form at home with your parents and send it back to us before the summer starts. Your schedule will be all ready to go when you get to camp, full of six activities from your top ten list! After the first week at camp, you will sign up for the next week's activities. You may choose to stay with the same activities or try some different ones. The same is true for week three. We want you to go as far as you would like in an activity, but also be exposed to lots of new activities. If you don't see a particular activity you are looking for, don't worry! We probably offer it during Daily Choice.

Daily Choice gives you the chance to try something new every single day! During Daily Choice, you can try activities that are on the regular schedule (it's kind of like a "taste-test!") or you can sign up for something completely different, like Extreme Bocce, Ultimate Frisbee, or Magic Tricks. Another fun time is Evening Activity, where you and your bunkmates will participate together in an all-camp event or an organized activity just for you! It's a great opportunity for bunk bonding and exposure to different areas of camp. You can read more about our activities on our Program page.
