Oldest Jewish Summer Camp In New England, Situated In The Pristine Wilderness Of Maine's Beautiful Belgrade Lakes Region. American Camp Association Accredited And Strictly Kosher.
Since its inception in 1922, Camp Modin has pursued an ideal. This ideal began as a desire to provide children not merely with a recreational experience, but a summer that would contribute meaningfully to the balanced development of a child. The gifted and devoted educators who founded Camp Modin applied the best of what was thought and known about helping young people to grow, and established a nurturing community on a pristine lake in the woods of Maine.
So it is today, that we have brought forward these goals and made them the cornerstones of our philosophy and the heart of the Modin program. Our goals are to know and understand each child individually, build a sense of community, and provide an awareness of Jewish identity. Our mission: to provide a safe, warm and nurturing environment in which children can learn, grow and develop lifelong friendships.

Food and dining
Meals at Modin are served family style, affording campers the opportunity to further connect as bunkmates. Our Kosher dining facilities offer an extensive range of healthy options and choices for a variety of tastes and palates. We are able to accommodate many allergy restrictions including gluten free diets and nut allergies. During the week we eat in our dining hall in three shifts, either by age or gender. On Friday evening our community eats together for Shabbat in our spacious Rec Center. Throughout the summer our community also enjoys full camp outdoor cookouts.
