Wyonegonic, the nation’s oldest girls’ camp, was founded in 1902. Wyonegonic offers three and half or seven week programs where girls challenge themselves in a non-competitive atmosphere and enjoy the beauty of friendship in the simplicity of the outdoors.
Our extensive waterfront offers swimming, diving, canoeing, kayaking, rowing, sailing, sail boarding, and water skiing. Other activities include horseback riding, tennis, archery, land sports, pottery, arts & crafts, theatre, music and dance. Beyond the five instructional periods each day, there is informal free time with friends or time to read a book and absorb the beauty of Wyonegonic – the mountain, the lake, and the tall pines.
Wyonegonic places an emphasis on outdoor living skills/ecology and an extensive out of camp tripping program in which all campers can participate. Respect for the out of doors is prevalent by teaching Leave No Trace principles. Each camper experiences, at a minimum, an overnight at one of our wilderness campsites on Moose Pond with their cabin-group. Campers can opt to participate in many single and multi-day hiking, backpacking, canoeing and sea kayaking trips throughout Maine and New Hampshire.
Campers live in traditional, rustic, lakeside cabins in small groups with their counselors which fosters a family like unit. Deep friendships flourish from 30 different states and foreign countries. Camper ages are 8-15. The Leadership Training programs are for teens age 16-18. Wyonegonic is affiliated with Winona Camps for boys and share the rich legacy as the oldest brother/sister camps in the country.
