1750 Bear Pond Rd., Hartford
Camp Wekeela's beautiful campus is on Little Bear Pond (which is actually not so little) in Hartford, Maine, and the staff-to-camper ratio is about one to two and a half. Kids partake in the typical camp land and water activities, but they also have the opportunity to strike out on weekly camping trips around New England, day hikes, whitewater rafting adventures, etc. Teen campers can also go on longer trips—like a surfing expedition along the coast or to cities like Boston and Montreal. Wekeela is open to kids ages seven to sixteen, and camp sessions range between two (for "rookie" campers) and seven weeks long.
