TWO SEPARATE CAMPS, ONE COMMUNITYWelcome to the place built on nearly 100 years of tradition, where the White Mountains meet the rambling Saco river. To the place where a 7-year-old learns courage and a 17-year-old develops leadership. A place full of laughter, friendship, challenges, teamwork, diversity.
Indian and Forest Acres; separate brother-sister camps sit on the Saco River in Fryeburg, Maine, located only two miles apart, in the heart of the Mount Washington Valley, where the shore actually meets the mountains. Set in a valley sheltered by the White Mountains and near 6,288-foot Mount Washington, the camps have large evergreen forests, grassy playing areas and sweeping views of the river and mountains. Surrounded by rivers, lakes, and over 750,000 acres of national forests, Fryeburg has easy access to all of Maine and New Hampshires scenic wonders.
Indian and Forest Acres are two separate camps located two miles apart. That said, they are one community. Camp is a place where kids can be themselves. They can learn new activities and flourish in the ones they were already passionate about. Camp is where children from America, Spain, Israel and China live under one roof, learning about other cultures and making life-long friends.
Anyone who walks through camp’s gates will agree, it’s difficult to explain the experience and the love that one has for this piece of heaven here in Fryeburg, Maine… but that’s part of the magic of camp.
