Each summer, around 500 economically disadvantaged youth from all over Maine attend Camp Susan Curtis.
At our top-notch facility, youth participate in a variety of curricula designed to help lay a permanent, critical foundation helping economically disadvantaged Maine youth develop the individual character, self-confidence and skills essential to becoming independent, contributing citizens.
Our programs are tuition-free for all participants, financially supported almost entirely by donations.
