​Dear Friends of Pine Island Camp,

Our 2024 season is about to begin! On Friday, June 28, we’ll welcome a terrific group of boys from fifteen states and three countries to Pine Island. We’re excited to share the next six weeks with them!

Each day at Pine Island is a chance to try something new: learning to sail, rolling a kayak, swimming to the mainland, crafting a chair, cooking over a fire, starring in a Saturday Night Show… As campers climb through the ranks of their chosen activities, these skills add up. And in the end, they’ll come away with far more than a patch in their hand; they’ll have the confidence that only earned achievement can provide. It won’t all be easy, but it will all be worth it.

When they’re not earning ranks in activities, they’ll be out on trips. We take great care in crafting these expeditions, which range from one-night excursions to weeks-long journeys on the trails and waterways of New England. Our campers will fish iconic rivers, backpack through Baxter State Park, traverse the Presidential Range, paddle tranquil waters, and navigate class-2 rapids. They’ll maintain a section of the Appalachian Trail, explore tide pools on Whitehead Island, and follow Thoreau’s journey on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. From beginner trips to challenging expeditions, we have something for all our campers. We provide the options; they pick their adventures. If you see them out on the trail this summer, please say hello.

We’re grateful to all the parents, volunteers, and donors who have made this upcoming season possible – thank you!
