Founded in 1902, Camp Cobbossee is the “home away from home” for more than 150 boys during each of our two sessions. Camp Cobbossee is located in Monmouth, Maine, 15 miles west of the capital, Augusta, and approximately one hour north of Portland. Our beachfront extends almost a mile of shoreline on magnificent Lake Cobbosseecontee, which is eleven miles long and six miles across. We also have our own private island, Spirit Island, where campers have a chance to explore. The countryside surrounding Camp Cobbossee is made up of evergreen forests and many beautiful lakes, mountains, and national parks…providing the true Maine experience!

Camp Cobbossee is one of the oldest continuously run boys camps in the country. Many of the Camp Cobbossee traditions are carried on today by the children and grandchildren of Camp Cobbossee alumni.

How We Accommodate International Campers

We pick up campers flying as unaccompanied minors at Logan Airport in Boston within specified times. We will also bring campers to the airport to catch a return flight and accompany them to the gate.

Boys with sisters or cousins attending Camp Kippewa see each other at least 1x / week. Camp dates & rates are the same. Transportation for campers to/from camp is coordinated and shared so siblings are picked up together.
