Tucked along the shore of beautiful North Pond in Rome, you will find what, at first glance, looks like a quintessential Maine camp under a canopy of pine trees. Look a bit closer and you will see why many refer to this place as “heaven on earth.” It is Pine Tree Camp.
Pine Tree Camp opened its gates in 1945 as a summer camp for children with physical disabilities. Over the years, it has evolved into a place where children and adults with disabilities are able to participate in all the recreational activities for which Maine is known all year long. The barrier-free setting, along with an amazing staff, ensure that activities like swimming, fishing, kayaking, hiking, boating and even camping in a tent under the stars are completely accessible to all. Participating in activities that take people beyond their disability has a tremendous impact. It builds self-esteem and self-confidence. That experience coupled with meeting friends who understand and experiencing the feeling of acceptance is transformational.
We are proud to be Maine’s only American Camping Association-Accredited camp for people with disabilities.
