The impact of your support
Every summer, more than 650 Maine children and adults with disabilities arrive at Pine Tree Camp 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 our 285-acre fully-accessible campus, committed and well-trained staff and peer support. At Pine Tree Camp, campers make friends for the first time; friends who understand what they are going through. Campers actively participate in all the activities for which Maine is famous – kayaking, boating, fishing and hiking – experiencing freedom and independence. In addition, Pine Tree Camp provides their families with much needed respite.
Since 1945, Pine Tree Camp has welcomed all who could benefit regardless of their ability to pay the $1,900 tuition. All proceeds from the Paddle for Pine Tree Camp will go to Pine Tree Camp’s Campership Fund.
