Kids’ Day Camps - RAD Summer Camps

Recreation Activity Day (RAD) Camps
Member & Non-Member:
$145 per week
Ages: 5-12

Our summer RAD camps are designed for campers looking to explore many different activities and share those experiences with other campers.  Your child will engage in their choice of activities in a safe, supervised, stimulating, non-competitive environment.

RAD Camp offers choice-based programming, which means your child will choose from an assortment of activities including swimming, rock climbing, soccer, arts and crafts, canoeing, dodgeball, and many more. This format, and the specific opportunities we offer, are designed to develop self-esteem, leadership skills, responsibility, and teamwork.

Our philosophy is environmentally oriented, so while at camp our directors and counselors will be promoting environmental consciousness/sustainability in all aspects of camp; a skill that your child will take into everyday life.

Day Camp hours are 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. For an additional charge, you may make arrangements to drop off / pick up your child up to one hour before/after these hours. See the Parent’s Guide or Registration Form for more information.

In accordance with the American Camp Association standards, the counselor-to-camper ratio will be 1:6 for ages 6-8, and 1:8 for ages 9-13.

Summer 2014 Dates:
Please note, will be starting registration for camp at the UMaine Camp Fair Wednesday, March 19, 4-7pm, and anytime after that date.  We will no longer accept Drop In registrations for RAD Summer Camp.  Additionally, to hold your child’s spot in camp, it must be paid for by the Friday before camp begins.  These changes will allow us to have more accurate camper counts, and will result in better planning.  We want your children to have a wonderful experience at RAD Camp, and with your help in registration and planning, we will get there!
