Summer Camps

We want to say thank you for your continued interest in our camp offerings. We know just how special these camps are to the campers, the community, and the families that come back year after year.

The mission of our summer programs is to offer unique, innovative programming for campers that fosters creativity, leadership, and individuality in accordance with the mission statement of Eastern Maine Community College. Our staff has extensive experience in summer programming, student life, and engagement activities, and are all dedicated to creating rewarding experiences for each camper. Respect, enthusiasm, and creativity are paramount in all our programs. We expect campers to be inquisitive, honest, and energetic, and to be willing to try new things. We expect parents to help foster and camp staff to welcome these characteristics, as well as understand that each child is an individual. Summer camp offerings may continue to change as Summer 2024 approaches, please keep checking back or contact us at for more info!

Culinary Camps (ages 9-15)  **Registration accepted online only**

As we enter our thirteenth summer, we are excited to continue delivering quality, hands-on culinary instruction to youth in the Bangor area. Our Culinary Camps provide the opportunity to learn what goes on “behind the scenes” in a working kitchen, create culinary masterpieces using a variety of techniques, try new foods, and make lots of new friends. Don’t hesitate – our programs fill up extremely fast!

All of our culinary programs run Monday-Thursday, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM, and Fridays from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM. On Fridays, campers will leave with their guests after the luncheon wraps up. Breakfast and lunch are both provided and each Friday we invite friends and family (max 8 guests per camper) to attend a Showcase Luncheon from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM. Junior camps are typically for those ages 9-12, while Senior camp is typically for those 13-15.

Culinary Camps cost $350/week, with a $50 deposit being due to reserve your spot, and the remaining balance being due by June 1st, 2024 Payment information will be shared after the successful completion of registration.

Adventures in Healthcare

(for students entering 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades)

  • Adventures in Healthcare did not run in the Summer of 2024. Please stay in touch with for updates for next summer.
  • Our Adventures in Healthcare program provides high school students with the opportunity to explore a wide variety of healthcare careers through hands-on activities and exciting tribe challenges. Campers actually practice casting, suturing (on bananas), and spine immobilization. They take x-rays and use laparoscopic robots in the EMCC operating room. They sometimes even get to sit in a Lifeflight helicopter! They not only see the tools our professionals use, but they get to touch and use them as well. This component of our program is what makes it truly unique! Trust us, it is a jam-packed 4 days of fun, excitement, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences!
