Our own Lake Cobbosseecontee is iconic Maine: a crystal clear lake, dotted with tree covered islands to explore, and boasts the only inland lighthouse. We even have our very own island for overnight campouts. Outdoor adventure is right at our doorstep with campfires and s’mores by the lake, hiking to the top of Mt. Katahdin, exploring the Great North Woods, white water rafting on the Kennebec River and even hitting the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean only a short drive away.
The small towns of Monmouth and Winthrop know summer has arrived when they hear the campers’ laughter from Kippewa and from our brother camp, Cobbossee. Campers, on the other hand, know they have reached their summer home when they hear the sound of the loons on the lake and participate in our annual, traditional Maine Lobster Bake.
Appreciating the outdoors and being aware of the environment takes on a whole new meaning in Maine’s undeveloped wilderness. Maine is also a year-round haven for local artists, whose ranks swell in the summertime, providing endless resources of talent in fine arts & crafts and theater.
