The wide range of choices, and the well-kept facilities offer Modin campers the opportunity to hone their skills. Campers receive intensive instruction in a wide variety of athletics, water sports, creative and performing arts and wilderness adventure programs.
Through guidance, encouragement, and healthy competition, children are carefully exposed to a whole variety of opportunities and new challenges. At Modin, there is no pressure to choose only those activities with which a child is familiar or proficient in. Modin teaches that success is not measured solely by the outcome, but by effort, determination, open-mindedness, and the willingness to try.
Throughout the summer, a child's progress is carefully monitored. Our goal is to ensure that each camper's schedule comprises a well-balanced selection of activities to ensure personal growth, skill development, and a sense of achievement.
Weekday mornings, children participate in scheduled bunk activities; afternoons find them engaged in our "free-choice" electives, pursuing a uniquely tailored program designed around their individual interests. Campers of all ages partake in every aspect of the specialized Modin program.
Modin offers a well-rounded selection of land sports. At Modin, there is truly something for everyone: Advanced players will find a variety of challenges including optional inter-camp tournaments while the novice player will find the environment low-keyed and supportive. In our community there is no one who isn't good enough to play. At Modin, no child is ever the last one to get "picked" for a team.
Our sports program helps campers to hone their skills by providing them with constant support, feedback, and encouragement. On the field, not only does a child gain a sense of pride and a feeling of accomplishment, but they learn to appreciate the value of teamwork.
The Modin waterfront sits on the banks of beautiful Salmon lake, the jewel of the Belgrade Lakes chain. Calm and sheltered, it provides the ideal location for a wide selection of waterfront activities.
One of the most breathtaking features of Camp Modin is its spectacular waterfront. With over 1,800 feet of shore-frontage, the cool breeze and tranquil beauty of Salmon Lake blends seamlessly into the landscape of camp.
Whether navigating scenic shores in a canoe, building endurance in a kayak, catching the wind as you hoist a sail, gliding across the glass-like waters on a pair of water-skis, jumping the perfect wake on a wakeboard or flying through the air on a water trampoline, opportunities for exploration and excitement abound.
The pristine wilderness of Maine is truly an outdoor wonderland. There are endless coastlines, mountains, woods, rivers and lakes to explore. Whether racing down a zip line, reaching the summit of Mt. Katahdin, rappelling the cliffs of Bar Harbor, singing by a roaring campfire or sleeping out under a starry sky, summer at Modin is everything you'd expect and so much more.
One of the most exciting features of Camp Modin is its wilderness adventure program. In camp, seasoned professionals guide campers through the obstacles and challenges of our high rope adventure course and climbing tower. Beyond our gates there is a spectacular variety of opportunities and natural wonders to explore. From simple day and overnight trips for our youngest campers to extensive multi-day excursions for our teens, experienced trip leaders both guide and challenge campers to not only succeed, but create memories that will last a lifetime.
Creativity and the ability to express oneself are integral parts of the Modin experience. Whether its putting the finishing touches on a masterpiece in a crafts studio, producing an award winning video or hearing the roar of applause at the end of a big musical number, camp provides children with endless opportunities to discover their artistic talents.
While daytime is for honing skills and mastering technique, nighttime at Camp is for kicking back and hanging out with friends and bunkmates. As sunny days turn into clear, star-lit nights the fun really begins. Evening programs are amazing and the list of activities is long and varied, but their true value lies in the fact that evenings at Modin are times that are best enjoyed together.
Beyond the concepts of bunk and community lies the importance of a strong, well-designed, age appropriate program. The Modin program gives teens a wide variety of activities and opportunities to make their camp experience both challenging and memorable. It affords children with tremendous choice, but also provides progression from year to year, building on previous experiences and knowledge attained. The goal is to keep the program fresh by offering new and challenging opportunities as they grow and mature into young adults.
