TYPE OF CAMP: Overnight/Sleepaway.

CAMPER GENDER(S): All Boy Campers.

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Camp Caribou is definitely a special place. Campers ages 7-15 can grow and develop skills and friendships that will last a lifetime. We have a very mature and experienced staff from all over the world and are fortunate to have many of them return year after year.

Theater, Fine Arts/Crafts, Video/Filmmaking/Photography, Basketball, Football, Baseball, Weightloss, Soccer, Golf, Swimming, Tennis, Waterfront/Aquatics, Sailing, Volleyball, Adventure, Wilderness/Nature, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: Camp Caribou is located a mile in on a private 200 acre peninsula. We are lucky enough to be the only camp on the lake, with a mile and half of private lake front. This unique property creates a nice sense of privacy and seclusion, yet is located only 5 miles from the wonderful city of Waterville, with access to Maine General Hospital, movie theaters, shopping, restaurants and more.

CAMP FACILITIES: Camp Caribou is located a mile in on a private 200 acre peninsula. We are lucky enough to be the only camp on the lake, with a mile and half of private lake front. We have 20 cabins with private bathrooms, 9 tennis courts, 2 baseball diamonds, 1 outdoor basketball court, 12 target archery range, 275 yard golf range, 9 hole chipping course, outdoor climbing facility, collegiate hockey rink, 3 soccer fields, 2 lacrosse fields, and a 10,000 square foot gymansium.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Our program offers a wealth of activities and programs. Most mornings, campers rotate with their bunk through three one-hour instructional periods. Over the course of a week, this exposes them to all the camp’s land and water sports, its extensive ropes course with high and low elements, as well as creative and culinary arts. This instruction uncovers new interests that campers often pursue in the afternoon, when they select three activities of their own. These “electives” change daily and allow campers to be self-directed. Having had Caribou in our family since 1968, we are confident that boys learn best with this combination of instructional and elective time.

Our staff takes a great interest in reaching out to our campers. They try to uncover new interests, improve on current interests and act as mentors to your children. They are passionate about what they teach. We as Directors also teach in the program. We love knowing and working with all of the campers. Camp Caribou is on a private and beautiful 200 acre peninsula. The facilities are fabulous and well maintained. Camp Caribou traditionally has a winning combination of wonderful campers, outstanding staff, and great facilities. This special combination provides a spirited, memorable, fun and safe summer experience for all.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: “The Caribou Collaborative Initiative, or CCI, is non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the Camp Caribou experience with deserving children whose families could not otherwise afford this type of opportunity. Our goal is to raise funds to support these “camperships” so that children may benefit from the tremendous growth that happens in our warm, safe and nurturing camp community. In addition to their personal and social growth, these children will have the opportunity to develop their skills in all the land and water sports and wilderness adventures that are offered at Camp Caribou, while spending their summer in the beautiful Maine woods. We will work in conjunction with several other non-profit youth programs out of Boston and New York City and rural Maine to help us support children from underrepresented backgrounds.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Caribou campers develop increased confidence as our experienced staff teaches them new skills and helps them improve existing strengths. Parents often ask, “Who is the typical Caribou kid?” Our answer is always that we attract the “what’s next?” kids—kids who love to learn and be active, are willing to try new things, and respond very well to the positive reinforcement of their counselors and peers. Caribou boys are fun-loving, warm, and welcoming. They represent a cross section of athletic abilities, very similar to a school classroom. Some are gifted athletes, some are boys with growing interest and skills in various sports, and some are just learning and beginning to develop. The only prerequisite is that they are interested in learning and love to play. Camp Caribou boys are also known for their excellent sportsmanship. Our philosophy is that we win with class and we lose with class.
