virtual ‘camp’ camp 2021: august 22-29
another fun week of online summer camp: $125
‘Camp’ Camp will be held virtually again this summer due to COVID-related issues & concerns. Though obviously not the same as gathering in person in Maine, those Campers who joined us for Virtual Camp last summer – including some folx who had never been to Camp before – told us their week was the best (virtual) time ever! Don’t believe us? Check out some of their testimonials about Virtual Camp 2020 here.
We’ll be updating our website in the upcoming weeks with details on how to register for Virtual Camp 2021. You can also sign up for our e-newsletter via the upper-right corner of this page to make sure you’re notified about all the details as they’re released.
Below are all the details on the traditional registration process for Camp, so you’ll know what to expect when we return to Maine in August 2022 (and we will!)
Our all-inclusive Registration Fee of $1750* covers all your activities, meals, and accommodations for the week, as well as complimentary round-trip transportation from Portland International Jetport or Portland bus or train stations.
A reduced fee schedule is available through our staff program. For more information, including the Staff Fee schedule and a list of available positions, please visit our staff page.
Our initial season of ‘Camp’ Camp Plus, our virtual day camp for LGBTQ adults, recently finished its inaugural season and will return in the fall. Camp+ is a great way to get a virtual taste of the ‘Camp’ Camp experience.
* All fees include a 9% Maine Use & Lodging tax.
easy online registration
We require a minimum deposit of $500 to reserve a space for you at Camp – or you can submit full payment of your fees when you register. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover via the Online Payment Form that automatically follows the Online Registration Form. Details on how to pay by check or Venmo are available at the end of the Online Registration Form. All balances must be paid in full by July 15. We generally require payment in full for all registrations received after July 15, but feel free to email us if you need other payment arrangements.
Once we receive your registration & deposit, you will receive a confirmation email with further details, including details on arranging your complimentary transportation from Portland International Jetport (PWM) or the Portland bus or train stations. That’s it… it’s that easy!
To take advantage of our payment plan option, simply answer “Yes” to the Installment Payment Plan option question on the Online Registration Form and submit your $500 deposit. We’ll then automatically charge the balance due in equal monthly installments between receiving your registration and July 15. (Hint: The earlier you register, the lower your monthly payments will be!) A one-time $25 Payment Plan Administrative Fee will be added to your total balance due. (Automatic payment plans are not available if you pay by check or via Venmo.)
For questions or more details on setting up a payment plan, please call 347-453-5257 or email us.
After making a reservation, the following cancellation penalties apply:
|Before May 1:||$300 Administrative Fee|

OUR CANCELLATION PENALTIES ARE FINAL AND NON-NEGOTIABLE. We highly recommend you secure travel insurance to help ensure you can recover your fees and other travel costs should you need to cancel your reservation at Camp due to unexpected illness, injury, or other emergency.

Including a donation to the Campership Fund with your registration fees is greatly appreciated, as the funds go a long way in making sure Camp is affordable for all who would like to attend. (Donations to the Campership Fund are not tax-deductible at this time.)
