Recreation Activity Day (RAD) Camps
Member & Non-Member:
$135 per week
Ages: 5-12, K-5

UMaine Campus Recreation and the Town of Orono are teaming up to offer Summer RAD camps.  These 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.  Our home base is located in the New Balance Student Recreation Center on campus, and we will be venturing into the town of Orono for many activities.

RAD Camp offers an assortment of activities including swimming, rock climbing, soccer, arts and crafts, canoeing, field games, library time, and many more. These 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.

Registration Information:

This year we will process all registration and payments online.   Please click here to register for camp.  We will no longer accept drop-in registrations for RAD Summer Camp.  To hold your child’s spot, you must be registered and paid for by the Friday at 12:00 pm before that week of camp begins.  This allows us to have more accurate camper counts and 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!


Day Camp hours are 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. You may drop off / pick up your child up to one hour before/after these hours at no extra charge. See the Parent’s Guide for more information.

Camper Ratios:

In accordance with the American Camp Association standards, the counselor-to-camper ratio will be 1:6 for ages 5-8, and 1:8 for ages 9-12.
