19 Echo Lake Rd., Fayette
At Winnebago, all first-year campers under the age of twelve are assigned big brothers (usually fourteen- or fifteen-year-olds) a month and a half before camp. Some talk before camp, but regardless, upon arrival, these big brothers are the ones to show the new campers the ropes, making the transition all the smoother. The boys live in screened cabins and have 400 acres of forested land to enjoy off the shore of Maine's Echo Lake. Although there are nonathletic activities (writing for the camp newspaper, photography, acting) happening here, the athletic facilities are arguably the most impressive part of campus. The field house alone is 12,000 square feet and home to hockey, basketball, volleyball, and short court tennis courts, plus a rock climbing wall. Another highlight of camp: The overnight hiking and camping trips to some of the region's most picturesque places. It's for boys ages eight to fifteen, for either the full summer or half.
