CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: No child left inside! Circumstances are different for everyone. We ask those who can afford to pay for camp to please do so. Acadia Mountain Guides offers options to those who want to attend camp but might not have the financial means.

Option 1. Camper sends us a letter in their own words on why they want to come to camp and the parent or guardian should send an accompanying letter stating what they can contribute to camp. We seek to find sponsors to support this program.

Option 2. REENO Foundation. This is a scholarship program honoring Nick Ruschmeyer, one of our former camp leaders who died from cancer recently. He did a lot in his short life. Per Nick’s choice, AMG is one of four benefactors of his foundation’s funds. Our campers can apply for a scholarship to attend.

Option 3: Many businesses and organizations offer financial assistance for camp. Often, all you have to do is ask. Here are some ideas. Your church or synagogue may have a fund. If the camper’s parent(s) or grandparent(s) served or are serving in the military, there may be funds available for camp through veteran’s groups. Other civic organizations and clubs, sororities, and fraternities, may have available funds.

Option 4: An example of the above:
The Lee Summer Camp Scholarship Program provides up to $300 in summer camp scholarships to children of Atlantic Acceptance and Maine Auto Credit customers. Deadline April 30th.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): We offer rock climbing programs to individuals and families throughout the spring, summer and fall. A great way to try out climbing and explore the vertical world.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Backcountry Ski Camp in February Vacation week.

Camps begin June 20 and run to August 20. Come for a week or combine camps to spend as many weeks as you like.
