For more than 60 years, Camp Tekakwitha, a french-speaking summer camp, has retained a family atmosphere by welcoming small groups. No more than 120 campers, age 8 to 13 and 72 teenagers, age 14 to 17 are present during a session. Teenagers, called "Pioneers", are regrouped in their own sector but are still an integral part of camp life.
This summer camp offers a wide variety of activities that take full advantage of its magnificent nature surroundings. In addition, a lot of special events such as a day at the ocean, camping, circus, Olympics etc. are part of the program
The Pioneers stay centers on a 7 to 17 day hike on the famous Appalachian Trail. This offers a challenge that every teenager will be proud to undertake.
All campers and Pioneers are housed with their counselor in heated cabins in groups of 10 to 12.
Camp Tekakwitha's staff has always been selected in accordance with very high standards. Each and everyone must have the children's particular needs as their constant concern. A ratio of more than one staff member for every three children is attained.
Camp Tekakwitha is inspected by authorities from the state of Maine and by the Quebec Camp Association. Camp Tekakwitha has always been given the very highest marks by both organizations.
Between 65 and 70% of our campers do come back. It is one of the highest return rate of any summer camp!!
