Hidden Valley Camp
161 Hidden Valley Rd., Freedom
You won’t see any uniforms or color wars happening at Hidden Valley Camp. Run by the same husband and wife since 1988 (and founded by another couple in 1948), Hidden Valley has a decidedly nice vibe. Each camper’s program is tailored to his or her own interests—whether that be playing the guitar, caring for llamas (which reside at Hidden Valley's farm, along with donkeys, rabbits, ducklings, and more), dancing, hiking, or biking. The camp, which is situated on 350 acres in Maine, is open to kids from eight to fourteen years old, for four- or eight-week stays, as well as a two-week “introductory” session, which can be a good option for a first-time camper.
