BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: At Agassiz Village, it all starts with a smile. Our camp offers a safe and healthy environment where children’s smiles and laughter create lifelong friendships and provide a lifetime of memories. More importantly, our campers have the opportunity to embark on a life-changing experience. Agassiz Village campers take with them our values of responsibility, self-confidence, service to others and a commitment to learning.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Theater, Dance, Fine Arts/Crafts, Soccer, Swimming, Waterfront/Aquatics, Basketball, Team Sports, Academics, Adventure, Wilderness/Nature, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: Agassiz Village is located on a beautiful 400-acre lakefront property on Thompson Lake in Poland, Maine.

CAMP FACILITIES: All campers live in cabins with an average of 14 other children/youth and 2 counselors in each of the cabins. Bathrooms are located in the cabins with shower houses nearby. Boys and girls live in separate sections of camp.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Our campers learn that people care about them and that honesty, consideration and fair play are real. We emphasize participation rather than winning and aim to strengthen campers’ self-esteem and resilience. Each child is facilitated to recognize, develop and increase his/her own abilities and learns to use those abilities to address challenges he/she faces. We treat each child equally while also recognizing that every child is unique.

Traditional Overnight Camp program is for campers ages 8-13 who have an option to attend one or two of our TWO-WEEK sessions (please see the Summer 2015 Schedule). The goals for each of the activities are to create an intentional experience through age specific, life-skills oriented, programming. Each program is educational so our campers learn important life skills (such as tolerance, respect, leadership, etc.) while having fun.

Agassiz Village traditional daily activities include but are not limited to: instructional and recreational swimming, arts & crafts, nature and outdoor living skills, sports and fitness, drama, dance, high and low ropes courses, canoeing and others. All of these programs are developed and lead by qualified and experienced instructors. Each camper group will go through at least five different scheduled activities every day during their session with each day ending with a different evening activity that will range from small group (cabin) activities to all camp events and celebrations. Through these every day programs as well as special/theme days and events we strive to provide a well-rounded experience for each of our campers that is fun and meaningful.

Teen Advancement Program (TAP) is a unique opportunity that offers more advanced programming and growth opportunities for our older campers. It is for those campers who are 14+ years old. It is an intentional two-week program focused on teen leadership skills development and community service. The first week of the session will focus on various leadership topics and skills like: group building, goal setting, teamwork, tolerance and compromise, integrity, role modeling, community service, etc. The second week will focus on service and learning projects. Campers in this program will also enjoy more responsibility and choice in the traditional A.V. camp experiences like swimming, canoeing, dance, sports, evening and other activities as part of the overall Agassiz Village community. The goal of this program is to raise our camper self-identity and awareness and develop specific leadership skills and values through purposeful experiential education to fulfill our mission: Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Leaders!

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Internship for Staff Training, Education, and Placement (INSTEP) is a 4-week, tuition free program for a select group of 16-17 year old teens seeking hands-on leadership skills development and potential future employment with Agassiz. Each candidate is required to apply for the position and is interviewed prior to their selection. Two weeks of training focus on general leadership and job skills development. During these weeks participants engage in a set of hands-on workshops on teamwork, group forming and dynamics, conflict management skills, leadership styles, and career and college workshops. Additionally, they actively participate and lead various activities.

We will also have a college admissions officer from University of Southern Maine do a ‘Dean For A Day’ workshop. This interactive workshop focuses on college application importance and assessment by looking at a number of actual applications and discussing their strong and weak points. This provides an opportunity for the 16-17 year old participants to look at the realities of college applications and what they need to start focusing on in order to successfully get into the college of their choice. The other two weeks participants work as Jr. Counselors and program assistants.

As Jr. Counselors they assist a Agassiz Cabin Counselor with the day-to-day activities of a cabin group and live together with the group for a week. All participants who successfully complete the program will receive a scholarship, the amount based on their performance, to be used to further their education and leadership opportunities.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Financial aid available to all through sliding scale financial aid rates (posted on our website). Session rates start at $125 and depend on family's annual income and household size.
