CAMP LOCATION: On the shores of six-mile long Echo Lake and among 100-year-old pine and hardwood trees, Winnebago sits nestled within a breathtaking landscape on 400 acres of land. Located in Fayette, Winnebago is located 17 miles from the capital of Augusta, 75 miles from Portland and a three-hour drive from Boston.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our facilities are modern yet not flashy. Campers live in one of 34 comfortable screened cabins. The younger boys generally have 6 boys and 2 counselors in a cabin while the majority of boys have 4 or 5 campers and 1 counselor per cabin. There is no shortage of places to go and explore at camp. We have more than 65 buildings and campers easily find what interests them.

Many of the activities including Photography (outfitted with a fully-equipped darkroom), Nature, Arts & Crafts, and Video are housed in their own buildings. We also have our own radio station and a wonderful theater. Several large buildings allow for the entire camp to convene, and we even have a Ping Pong building where boys can play in their free time.

Meals are enjoyed in our spacious dining hall, one of the original camp buildings, which features a lofted ceiling and fieldstone fireplace. Our athletic facilities are top-notch. We have more fields than we can use at one time and count 7 Har-Tru tennis courts, 3 softball/baseball diamonds, 2 basketball courts, 2 soccer fields, a clay and a beach volleyball court, and a sprawling low and high ropes course.

Our waterfront features a beach area where boys can play, a shallow water area for teaching beginner swimmers, a six-lane floating pool built into the lake, a deep water area with a high dive and waterslide, and a separate dock system that accommodates our sailing, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing and waterskiing programs.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Winnebago walks a fine line between creating a competitive atmosphere and understanding that success lies in the effort a camper gives rather than the outcome. As society becomes more results focused, we continue to insist on the process. Yes, Winnebagans do achieve extremely high results. However, boys understand that being supportive of each other is what makes a lasting difference � a difference that helps foster leadership and builds emotional and physical self-confidence.

The Winnebago program affords campers an opportunity to gain skills (and confidence) in a broad range of activities; many of which they would not necessarily have access to at home. Campers enjoy athletic instruction and competition (amongst each other and other camps) in a variety of sports that include baseball, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, street hockey and tennis. Campers swim twice daily, build skills in a number of other more individual activities such as archery, sailing, video, drama, photography and waterskiing, and explore the beauty of Maine on both day and overnight camping trips.

Our trip program is outstanding. Each age group embarks on two overnight camping trips each summer � usually one canoeing and one hiking. The trips are thoughtfully planned out to appropriately challenge boys in a safe yet meaningful way. Most campers return from their trips emboldened by their efforts and with a sense of accomplishment.

Campers and alumni consistently remark that experiences on trips are some of their most profound memories. Wherever Winnebagans go during the summer, people remark how nice, thoughtful, interested and interesting they are. This is a product both of who the campers are and of the culture we create at camp � a culture where boys understand that being nice and respectful to one another is important and easy.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: The Winnebago Alumni Association (�WAA�) provides the opportunity for boys to attend Winnebago who do not have the financial resources to attend Camp Winnebago. The WAA brings alumni together and commits to provide the financial assistance for a multi-year experience. The Alumni Association helps select those boys who will benefit from its scholarship programs. - See more at: Our Camp Website Link:
