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 fun and experiencing the joys of being a part of the natural world, we emphasize community living, respect for all, and healthy relationships. 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, hunter safety camps in conjunction with Maine Inland Fisheries & Wildlife, wilderness discovery trips featuring canoeing and backpacking, and multi-week leadership programs for teens 14-17. Behind our programs is a dedicated team of program leaders and support staff, who are extensively trained in working with young people in the outdoors.

“One thing I have discovered about camp is that it is easy to put yourself out there and make new friends. I tried STEM, which is a little out of my comfort zone, but it was amazing. I am proud to say that I now have so many people that will now back me up and support me unconditionally. I would like to continue this way of eating as part of my home routine. Thank you Tanglewood!” Emelia
