Tucked into a beautiful remote section of Camden Hills State Park, campers & counselors join together to form a creative community fostering a supportive and fun environment for all — and drawing people back year after year! While having a lot of fun and experiencing the joys of being a part of the natural world, we emphasize community living, respect for others, safety and responsibility. Summer at Tanglewood is filled with the wonderful energy of young people living and playing together outdoors. Our camps encourage everyone to be themselves, learn from those around them and to make good decisions.
Tanglewood’s summer offerings include overnight camps for 8-14 year olds, day camps for 4-11 year olds, a residential-based sailing program, wilderness discovery trips, and leadership programs for teens 14-17. Behind our programs is a dedicated team of counselors and support staff, who are extensively trained in working with young people in the outdoors.
