Camp's Description

Camp Kippewa is an overnight summer camp for girls located on the shores of pristine Lake Cobbosseecontee in south-central Maine. Kippewa's unusual combination of a tight-knit community with a relaxed ambiance and a focus on learning challenging activities makes Kippewa a girl's ideal summer home.

Girls finishing grades 1 - 9 (ages 6 through 15) may attend Kippewa for a four-week half-season experience. Enrollment is limited. The camp's small size allows the directors to personally know the campers and their parents, and assures that the camp's many opportunities are readily available to every girl. Kippewa is large enough to have plenty of girls in every age group and to support a lavish activities program, yet  small enough so that everyone in camp gets to know everyone else.


At Kippewa we believe every girl needs a safe, fun place to make friends with other girls, to learn social, artistic, and athletic skills, and to take childhood's steps toward the independence of adulthood. The caring, nurturing ambiance of Kippewa sets a girl at ease with who she is, giving her the confidence to make friends easily and feel comfortable about trying challenging new activities. Everything is individualized, from the way we help your daughter adjust to camp, to the scheduling of her activities.


Camp Kippewa offers a wide variety of activities which include studio and performing arts, water and land sports, horseback riding and stable management, wilderness hiking and canoe trips, and individualized sports including gymnastics, tennis, and archery.


Kippewa campers select the activities they would like to participate in each week. Each week, every girl chooses four new classes to attend for one hour each day with girls of her same age and grade in school. One period each day is assigned and alternates between swimming lessons and team sports. Additional daily free choice periods are recreational, with a variety of activities open to girls of all ages. Evenings are filled with campfires, plays, dance and gym shows, casino nights, special events, and games appealing to a particular cabin, age group, or the camp as a whole.

Kippewa's brother camp, Camp Cobbossee for Boys, is located less than a mile away on the same lake. Kippewa campers enjoy a single sex camp environment while having the opportunity to visit regularly with brothers and cousins and to get to know boys of their own age during low-key camp activities.

Outdoor Adventure

A classic woodland camp built in 1917, Kippewa begins on one of Maine's rare sand beaches and continues up the gentle hillside to spectacular views of Lake Cobbosseecontee. Easy proximity to the coast of Maine and the remote lakes and mountains of the Great North Woods further enhances the setting by allowing ocean sailing trips, salt water beach days, and wilderness hiking and canoe trips to be held close to camp.

Fabulous Camp! December 31, 2009

Kippewa has been revitalized in recent years. The new directors are great. The programs that the girls can choose from are very comprehensive. My daughter loves the arts and is not very sporty. She is completely at ease with Kippewas many arts programs, but came home excited about the waterfront and sports activities as well! Parents are looked after as well. Ginger was very patient with me and was available whenever I felt like I needed to speak with her. The photos they post on the website are also very nice. You are able to see the fun the girls are having each day.
