Camp's Description

Established in 1922 and situated in the pristine wilderness of Maine’s beautiful Belgrade Lakes region, Camp Modin is the oldest Jewish camp in New England. Located on a private, unspoiled lake, our 350 campers from around the world, ages 7-16, enjoy a community-oriented environment in which they can learn, grow and develop lifelong friendships.  Our warm, nurturing and welcoming atmosphere helps first-time campers to assimilate quickly into the Modin family

The Modin program offers professional instruction in over 70 athletic, waterfront, creative arts and wilderness activities. Specialized programs designed for Modin teens include cycling tours, white-water rafting, Canadian excursions, community service and leadership training. Camp Modin is accredited by the American Camping Association and is a member of the Maine Youth Camping Association.

Camp Modin is Terrible July 25, 2008

This was the worst summer camp I ever attended. The kids were mean and the activities were awful. For example, they had races at the beginning of the summer in the woods and they told me to slow down because I could get hurt. Then we were supposed to have horseback riding and they cancelled it with no reason. To announce the start of color wars (the date is always a suprise) they had the entire camp line up under the guise of a suprise trip to an amusement park. You can imagine the entire camp's disappointment when it turned out to be a trick and instead of going to an amusement park we had color wars. There's a Jewish fast day in the middle of the summer, rather than have food available immediately after the fast for those campers fasting they made those campers wait the extra hour for dinner for the entire camp. DO NOT GO TO THIS CAMP.
