An activity at Pine Island Camp, a boys summer camp in Maine.

Our Mission

Our purpose is to give boys an adventurous, happy, and safe summer experience in an atmosphere that increases self-confidence, broadens knowledge, and strengthens character. To this end, Pine Island Camp keeps its enrollment small, its program varied and imaginative, and its life simple, unplugged, and close to nature. In this age of cell phones, computers, and social media, a summer at Pine Island offers boys the opportunity to grow in physical skills, imagination, and self-confidence, away from the screens and clamor that dominate our world. We believe it is self-confidence above all that promotes the growth of all the other qualities that we want for our children, including independence coupled with a concern for others, honesty, generosity, a sense of humor, and the ability to find joy in life.
