Nestled in the foothills of the White Mountains on the sandy shores of Bear Lake, Camp Wigwam offers a traditional summer camp program with particular emphasis on tennis, golf, the arts and rustic camping along the spectacular trails of the magnificent White Mountain National Forest.
Camp Wigwam……a beautiful summer camp in Maine. Every camper no matter his interests becomes part of the ever-growing wigwam family. Golf lessons are offered daily. Waterfront classes include swimming, sailing, fishing and a water skiing program as well as hiking, drama, woodworking, music, crafts and tutoring if required can be chosen.
Camp Wigwam stresses participation rather than strict competition and allows every camper ample opportunity for choice. This encouraging, supportive atmosphere enables each camper, no matter his interests, the ability to reach his highest potential.
The Wigwam summer camp experience is a very personal one with only four boys and one counselor in each cabin. One seven week program begins in late June and runs through the middle of August, with a five week option within that time frame. Campers range in age from seven to fifteen.
With a high percentage of returning staff, experienced administrative personnel and the involved ownership of the Strauss family, Camp Wigwam fosters individual, physical and emotional growth in a less competitive atmosphere, guiding each camper to live and learn within a community of his peers.
