One of the finest summer camps in America has finally reopened, and we’re excited to invite you along on this journey.
It’s been nearly a century since Camp Somerset for Girls welcomed its first campers to East Pond in Smithfield, Maine, and three decades since it sadly closed.
Until then, one generation followed another, returning to what became one of the most prestigious summer camps in the United States. There they made lifelong memories and friendships that only camp can provide.
Now they can again.
Camp Somerset for Girls reopened in 2018, combining this extraordinary history and tradition with a new team of experienced directors and staff, on a campus rebuilt from the ground up. While we are extraordinarily proud of the beautiful facilities, incredible activities, and unique experiences offered, we are most proud of the inclusive community we have created. It is one where every child will feel a sense of belonging and acceptance and a desire to return each summer.
Our original campers, staff, and families, have laid the foundation for future generations of campers as together we write the next great chapters in the legacy of Somerset. Our many years as campers and counselors have made us passionate about summer camp. Those experiences shaped us into the people we are today and helped us to achieve our dreams. We can’t wait to help your daughter achieve hers.
