Divided into 6 campuses—3 for girls, 3 for boys—with names like Kennebago, Acadia, and Sequoia, Camp Laurel welcomes 240 girls and 240 boys between the ages of 7 and 15 to it’s Maine campus every summer. Camp life here is what you think of when you think of a storied Maine sleepaway camp (Laurel was founded in 1949, although originally in another location). After wake-up and breakfast, there’s a campus-wide meeting, called Cove. Then cabin clean-up, three morning activities, lunch, and rest, followed by a few more activity periods. After dinner every night, there’s some kind of programming—theater productions, sport leagues, group games—and an evening snack. And every fifth day is “Special Event Day,” which is sometimes a trip off campus. Laurel is a full-summer camp only.
