L.L.Bean Summer Kids' Camp is a safe and fun experience for campers to learn new skills and enjoy outdoor adventures! Our camp is located on the scenic shores of Casco Bay in Freeport, Maine, which offers a unique opportunity to explore the outdoors by land and sea.
Each day your child will be guided by expert instructors and experienced camp counselors while they participate in small-group activities that may include kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, archery, fly casting, geocaching, camp craft and more. In addition to these core activities and playing games, they will learn about the ecology and natural history of this historic Maine location. All campers will experience the fun of our low ropes course, while older campers will also enjoy the thrill of our high ropes challenge course!
Our instructors and counselors foster a friendly, safe and supportive environment, allowing your child to try new activities and learn more about themselves. They'll make new friends and learn lifelong outdoor skills, helping them be more comfortable and confident in the outdoors.
At the beginning of the week, campers will receive an L.L.Bean carabiner. As they stretch their comfort zone trying new outdoor skills and participating in team initiatives, they will receive a special laminated skills tag for each activity completed. Each tag is a symbol of the growth and confidence they have gained!
Our camp hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Special sibling and multi-session discounts are available.
All necessary equipment for these outdoor adventures is provided, including sunscreen and bug spray.

NOTE: Drop-off and pick-up is at the L.L.Bean Paddling Center at 14 Marietta Lane in Freeport. We are not offering any bus service at this time.
L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.
*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.
