The Summits Program at Camp Nashoba North provides teens with a truly unique opportunity to participate in a traditional, Maine sleep-away camp setting; while gaining experience serving others.
Summits is more than simply a summer experience! It’s a life experience with value and purpose that extends far beyond the boundries of a single summer. It provides the “Gift of Service” to you and those you serve. Spending two weeks in the Beautiful surroundings of the Sebago Lakes Region with like-minded peers and two terrific Nashoba leaders is an ideal way to look beyond yourself and to give to others. In the process, you will get so much more in return!
Summits focus on tangible, hands-on service learning and stewardship. Imagine yourself at a local food bank packing supplies for those in need or assisting with activities at a local non-profit camp focused on children with terminal illnesses. Picture yourself helping organize and sort medical supplies for those in need around the world or helping care for animals at a local animal shelter.

“My son enjoyed and learned so much through the Summits Program by participating in many hands-on activities with different organizations. I’ve never seen him looking so excited and happy holding a paint brush, picking tomatoes, raking gravel, etc…” – 2016 Summit Parent
