Pine Island Camp

Updated: February 21, 2007

WITH BOYS:1902-2007

Distinguished by its program, size—only 85 boys—and unique freshwater island location, Pine Island Camp has offered fun, traditional camp activities since 1902 in a rustic setting that develops a boy’s independence, imagination and character.

Boys aged 9-15 lead a vigorous outdoor life on our island base in central Maine, and they also hike and canoe on more than 40 camping trips. Wherever they are, boys respond to Pine Island’s simplicity and informality, to its traditions and supportive staff, and to the pervasive spirit of wit and humor. This great camp is a fun place to be a boy.

Tellingly, Pine Island today still embodies its founder’s ambitious, visionary purpose: “To give boys a healthful and beneficial summer outing, to clarify their minds and reinvigorate their bodies, to give them new life and new strength—in a word, to afford them an opportunity for re-creation—is the purpose of Pine Island Camp.”

Pine Island’s founder wrote these words in 1904, and they are a succinct and accurate description of Pine Island’s purpose today.
We seek to give boys ages 9 to 15 an adventurous, happy, safe summer in an atmosphere that will broaden knowledge and strengthen character. To do this, Pine Island keeps its enrollment small, its program varied and imaginative, and its life simple.

Today, when there are hundreds of different summer programs available, a season at Pine Island remains unique. Whether your son
is shy or gregarious, big or small, this camp wants to show him how to be at his best under the varied circumstances of outdoor living.
