About

No two girls are alike, why should their summers be?

Camp Kippewa is a unique all-girls overnight camp for ages 7 to 15. Girls select from a wide array of activities to create their own weekly schedule, participating in six activity blocks daily. The caring, nurturing ambiance at Camp Kippewa sets a girl at ease with who she is, giving her the confidence to make friends easily and feel comfortable about trying challenging new activities.
The Arts program offers over 20 disciplines of Fine Arts & Crafts and Dance & Theater. Onsite horseback riding facilities host an unbeatable Equestrian program where campers can ride daily. Lake Cobbosseecontee is the perfect setting for top-notch Water Sports instruction in waterskiing, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking. The program also offers a variety of Land Sports including tennis, gymnastics, softball, lacrosse and more. Campers enjoy the natural setting of Maine with ocean sailing trips, beach days, wilderness hikes and canoe trips.
Brothers and sisters at Camps Cobbossee and Kippewa see each other weekly through brother/sister lunches and shared special events.

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.

We will scan and email hand-written camper letters to parents who are overseas or traveling while their daughters are at camp.

Parents can schedule one phone call with their daughter during her time at camp.

Girls with brothers or cousins attending Camp Cobbossee 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.
