About Camp Vega

Nestled amidst the pines on beautiful Echo Lake in Maine, Camp Vega has been enriching the lives of girls and young women since 1936.  Vega’s 320 acres of prime, forested land, a mile and a half of shoreline, and miles biking and horseback riding trails have been the summer home to generations of girls from all over the world.    The spirited, positive community is evident in every area of camp and felt by every visitor that passes through its gate.   There are a wide variety of coaching and counselor positions, from fine arts, to performing arts, to sports, to waterski jumping, but the most important part of camp is the people and our goal is for everyone to have the best experience possible.

Getting Here and Getting Around

Staff members can get to camp just about anyway possible!  Driving and flying tend to be the most popular though.  If you fly, you should plan on flying into Portland airport in Maine or Logan Airport in Boston, and we will pick you up in Portland.  If you drive, there is plenty of parking.

For Fun

Staff are more than welcome to take advantage of all of our activities!  We also have a gym for working out and staff also like to run in their spare time during the day.  We have a plethora of special activities from the counselor hunt to parties and more.

 On nights out and days off, if staff decide to go out of camp they tend to go:
  • into Augusta (movies, nightlife, etc)
  • whitewater rafting
  • to Portland, Freeport or Boston for the night and day off
  • exploring Maine (mountains, beaches)
  • wherever they want (within reason)!
