Campers come from all over the US and 5 continents. Great food, many choices, support for allergies. Directors have lived on site for over 20 years. A parent writes: “It is a truly extraordinary camp, fun, interesting, inclusive, and with the kind of values that indirectly teach kids how to be better human beings. Each year my kids go there, I see so many positive changes when they return home… The camp directors are confident of their product as they should be.”
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.
