Campus Recreation Summer Camps
UMaine Campus Recreation and the Town of Orono have teamed up to offer Summer RAD camps for kids K-5th grade. 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 as well as the Greater Bangor Area. 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. Dates, times, and fees vary by the camp.
