For over a century, Camp Wawenock for Girls has been a beautiful haven for all those who spend their summers here. Located on a private, sandy cove, on Sebago Lake, Maine, Wawenock's setting is stunningly beautiful. Towering pines frame Camp's land-based program and living areas while crystal clear water provides a wonderful base for the extensive waterfront activities. Created and refined over time by educators, Camp Wawenock's Program and Philosophy are based on time tested values, enduring traditions, and a practice of ongoing evaluation and improvement. As a full-season (7 weeks) camp, Wawenock affords girls the time that is necessary to develop both their social and activity skills. As campers return, they build upon previous summers' relationships and learning, take on more formal and informal leadership roles and soon come to believe and live the words, "This Camp Is Yours!"
The Instructional Program is intentionally geared towards developing 'lifetime' skills in Sports, Aquatics, Arts, Outdoor Living and Equestrian activities - extending Camp's impact and value far beyond the camper years. Many alumnae who sail, ride, play tennis, hike, dance, camp, paint or enjoy acting or musical performance attribute their love of these 'lifetime' activities to their summers at Wawenock - where they first developed interest and a sound skill base as youngsters, before going on to acquire advanced skills and, in many cases, even to teach what they had learned to the next generation of girls.
Wawenock's extended Camp Family is large, after so many successive summers, but camper numbers are limited, each season, making for a tight-knit, loving community where everyone knows every other person in Camp. To begin to understand the relevance of summer camp in the growth and development of young people - particularly those who consider themselves so fortunate to have spent their summers at Wawenock - we encourage you to check out these links: Testimonials and Imagine.
