The camp food is good! Really. We have extensive salad bars, fruit available at lunch and dinner, potato or pasta bar at dinner, and variety at most meals. Our chefs are experienced and are proud of their homemade soups, breads, and cakes, as well as their appetizing main courses.

Getting Here and Getting Around

We have a parking lot for staff who are able to drive. We provide pickups to and from the airport on Staff Arrival Day and Staff Departure Day. The community among our staff is great at sharing rides on time off, but we also offer weekly shuttles into Augusta as well as trips to Maine's beautiful state and national parks on days off.

For Fun

Camp Laurel is located in the Belgrade Lakes region of Central Maine. We are 20 minutes from Maine's capital city Augusta. During days off, counselors often elect to spend their time going to the beach, Acadia National Park, hiking, spending a day in Portland, and generally taking in everything Maine has to offer.

For time off during the day, counselors are able to utilize our staff lounge, fitness center, sailboats, kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddleboards.

In addition, counselors help facilitate weekly trips out of camp, sight-seeing excursions, inter-camp competitions, theatre productions, and more!
