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.

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.

"My husband and I continue to be so incredibly overjoyed with how happy our children are at Camp Modin. It is without a doubt, their happiest place on earth. Their voices are full of happiness, contentment, excitement and peace. And they feel safe and loved."

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

What Modinites Say
We are excited to announce that Camp Modin will be opening for the summer of 2020. To our current families, we know how much camp means to you and your children. We look forward to being together on the shores of Salmon Lake this summer.
If you are a prospective family inquiring about space, please note that we have limited openings in a small number of cabins, and nothing for children currently in 9th grade and above.
Due to volume, we are unable to return phone calls regarding availability. The fastest way to be considered for a space is by completing a brochure request form. Once we have your form, a director will be in touch with you regarding availability.
