CAMP LOCATION: Camp Fernwood's 100 acre facility is located in the "Lakes District" of southern Maine. We are 45 minutes northwest of Portland, and only 2 hours from Boston.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Founded in 1921, Camp Fernwood is a traditional, overnight camp for girls in Poland, Maine. The Fernwood family is known for its warm atmosphere and concern for each child. Campers and mature staff live together in a beautiful, rustic setting, with many opportunities for friendships, learning and play.

Nurturing tolerance, unselfishness, and an appreciation of a simpler life in the out-of-doors. Our full season provides girls with enough time to experience new challenges, enhance self confidence, develop activity skills, and establish enduring friendships in safe, beautiful surroundings. Fernwood is not divided into sections, for we are, in essence, one family, building community spirit through the contributions of each of our girls.

Each camper has an elective program of activities, chosen with the guidance of parents and camp staff. Older campers may specialize in a specific activity. Expert instruction is offered in all activities, including swimming, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, waterskiing, kayaking, tennis, gymnastics, aerobics, English riding, archery, riflery, soccer, softball, field hockey, volleyball, drama, music, dance, crafts, ceramics, woodworking, silver jewelry, drawing, painting, photography, and rock climbing. The tripping program includes day trips, as well as extended white water canoe and kayak, backpacking, hiking, and rock climbing trips.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Fernwood has a broad geographic diversity. Campers come from 23 of the United States, France, Spain, Hong Kong, Colombia, and Switzerland.

Looking for a summer job?  If you're at least 19 years old and finished your first year of college, we'd love to discuss our opportunities with you. 

Fernwood's staff to camper ratio is the best we know of, at 1:1.5    This allows us to run a high quality program all day, every day, while still allowing our staff time to recharge with generous time off. 

A strong interest in working with children is required, and counselors are hired to teach within a specific activity(ies) specialty .
