When it comes to the perfect setting for a great summer, all roads lead to Maine, but only one leads to Camp Wekeela – the premier overnight summer camp for boys and girls age 6-16 located on Little Bear Pond in Hartford, Maine. Camp Wekeela is an inclusive, caring, and warm community of campers and staff.
Our goal at Camp Wekeela is to provide a fun, exciting summer camp experience that helps your child discover new talents and interests, builds self-esteem and confidence and gives them the opportunity to establish lifelong friendships.
What makes Wekeela special are the strong, loyal bonds we create. Our campers become like family. Long after camp ends for the summer, we remain in touch. Year after year, the vast majority of Wekeela campers return to renew the close friendships they have made and many of them return as counselors.
At Wekeela, we’ve developed leading-edge activity programming that includes creative and performing arts, water-sports, athletics and out-of-camp excursions. Programs are tailored to meet your child’s needs and we encourage our campers to make choices, take risks and accept new challenges.
Whether it’s learning to play the guitar, improving their tennis game or making friends with someone from a different state or country, your child will have a summer filled with memories that will last a lifetime.
Camp Wekeela has become a home away from home for my children. It is their special place to unplug, be who they are and just be kids. I honestly feel as a parent this experience has been one of the best gifts I have given to my kids. The friendships they have made will last a lifetime and the memories are priceless. Thank you, Lori and Ephram, for creating such a special place- Google Reviews - October 11, 2018
This has been the first year for my two kids, all the way from Italy. They say it has been the best vacation of their life and I can confirm. I have personally met and spoken to all the staff members when I brought the kids and they are amazing. We are already enrolled for next summer. We love camp Wekeela- Google Reviews - October 11, 2018
I have 3 boys who absolutely love their summers in Maine at Camp Wekeela. My oldest just spent his first summer as a counselor after 8 amazing summers as a camper. Ephram and Lori have provided an incredible environment where they have all grown beyond measure. The Caflun's create a family atmosphere in which both campers and counselors refer to Camp Wekeela as their HOME away from home. My kids have loved the staff, the activities (color war is highlight) and the friendships they continue to foster off season. They can't wait for summer 2019!- Karen Ptashnik - October 11, 2018
Our son went here for the first time this past summer (2018). He loved the camp, the staff and the counselors. We dropped him off and had a chance to look at the camp while there. It truly is a beautiful place. Bunks were in good repair as well as the grounds and other buildings. Your kids will be well taken care of when here. Its a great family environment for your kids to learn and grow.- Google Reviews - October 10, 2018
