My daughters love Hidden Valley Camp in Freedom, Maine. This will be our 4th year! HVC offers 4-week, 8-week, and 2-week "intro" sessions for girls and boys ages 8-14. Campers choose from over 50 classes and activities spanning the visual and performing arts, sports, horseback riding, nature and adventure, and water sports. This year the kids are especially looking forward to paddleboard yoga, glass blowing, and the many resident llamas and alpacas. Every year, my daughters learn new skills and create lasting friendships with children from all over the world. It's a very supportive environment with a 3:1 camper/staff ratio.
