Welcome to West End House Camp!

Our Mission is to:
  • Operate and sustain a premier summer camp for boys from all backgrounds, regardless of their financial means.
  • Encourage development of lifelong friendships and bonds among our campers, staff, and alumni in order to form a supportive brotherhood.
  • Cultivate self-confident, independent campers who become engaged community members, contributors, and leaders of high character.

In the foothills of the White Mountains on the southern Maine side, there is a remarkably modern and beautiful camp founded in 1908 with a legacy of camaraderie, teamwork, tradition, experiential outdoor learning, and personal growth: West End House Camp.

We are an overnight summer camp for boys ages 7-15.  Your son will share a cabin with 9-10 other boys and 3 counselors.  We offer 8, 6, 4, and 2 week sessions throughout the summer. We focus our days’ activities on the waterfront, sports, and games and challenges. We have the perfect combination of rotating campers through the wide variety of activities we have, while still having elective time where the boys can do more of what they like best.

West End House Camp campers become more independent, self-confident, responsible, and social without even realizing it! We are known for our continuity and the passion that campers develop for the camp and the lifelong friendships that quickly evolve. While many of our campers have been coming for years (as did some of their fathers and grandfathers), we are a very welcoming and comfortable place that enrolls many dozen newcomers each year. Additionally, our long-time, dedicated staff and counselors are almost all former West End House Camp campers, so we know how to make sure the campers feel supported and nurtured in their first or their fifth year!

West End House Camp is also known for the diversity and quality of our campers! We welcome boys from many different states and countries. We are diverse in terms of ethnicity, race, religion, family situations, and socioeconomic status, and we are proud of this! We emphasize mutual respect and equal opportunity for all.

We would like to get you in the loop! Sign up to receive our monthly email newsletters.

Each year we put together an extensive yearbook called the Spirit. Here is the link to look through present and past Spirit Yearbooks.  You will get a very clear picture of all that goes on that is fun, exciting, valuable, and memorable! 

West End House Camp seems like a great match for your son!? Chat with Director Ryan Wilensky right now about this. We are waiting for you to join the West End House Camp family!
