History & Heritage

In Pursuit of an Ideal

Since its inception in 1922, Camp Modin has pursued an ideal. This ideal began as a desire to provide children not merely with a recreational experience, but a summer that would contribute meaningfully to the balanced development of a child.

“As we conclude our daughters’ summers as campers, we are deeply grateful to you for being partners with us in shaping their lives. Their Modin experiences have changed their lives — and ours — for the better.”

– Lisa & Joe, Sudbury, MA


Designed for your child’s growth

The program offers first class facilities and top-notch professional instruction in over 70 athletic, waterfront, creative arts and wilderness activities, as well as specialized programs for teens.

Camp Modin teachers, mentors and counselors—a dedicated group of carefully chosen professionals with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Their collective goal is to make a difference and lasting impact on the lives of the children entrusted to their care.



Abundant and State-of-the-art

From our expansive waterfront and tournament ski boats, to our state-of-the-art fitness pavilion and teen lounge, to our rustic lodge and spacious recreation center, the list of facilities is truly extensive.


The Experience of a Lifetime

“Their summers at Modin, in such a beautiful setting as Maine, gave given them friendships that will last throughout their lives.”

– Carol (Purchase, NY)
