    At Camp Mondamin, our program is non-competitive, which encourages experimentation, and non-regimented, which fosters self-direction. Our strengths lie in the quality of our staff and the depth of our program. We value diversity, attracting campers from all 50 states and even a few foreign countries.

    The five week period at Camp Mondamin (Main Camp) is for those who want a big bite of skills, pioneer experiences, and stimulating contacts. A camper who has coordination and industry can learn to take his horse over a fence, to guide his canoe down a rapid, to handle himself in a variety of sometimes challenging situations. Six-day trips and longer are possible. The "three-way" trip encourages breadth of interest, and requires a high level of skill in riding, canoeing, and mountaineering.  Even more importantly, there is a tremendous opportunity for forging durable friendships among peers and adults which can , and often do, last a lifetime. Main Camp is the session of choice for those campers wishing the greatest exposure and opportunity for building friends and skills, and taking wilderness trips.  For ages 8 to 17.
