Medomak Camp and Retreat Center

Reviewed October 20, 2006

For the past 3 years we have travelled to Washington ME to spend a week at family camp at Medomak. We keep going back because our kids love it and it's an incredibly relaxing and stress-free vacation for parents. All meals and activities are included in the price, which is very reasonable when compared with similar vacations. Families stay in their own cabin with a bathroom and shower. Days are spent trying out traditional camp activities - archery, arts & crafts, sports, boating - and there is a campfire and whole camp activity each night (including things like campwide kickball, star gazing, and local beer and cheese tasting.) Kids have plenty of opportunities to meet other kids and have fun separate from parents. Adults can choose which activities to participate in and if reading a book under a tree is your preference, that's fine. Meals are prepared by gourmet chefs and there's always something to please kids and adults. No bug juice and hot dogs here! The lake is beautiful and stocked with kayaks, canoes, sailboats and even a rowing scull. There's also an "out of camp" day midweek that allows you time to explore the Maine coast. A great opportunity to "unplug" and enjoy some of the simple things that you might have done at summer camp as a kid - but this time with your whole family.

It has been a long time since my family and I have enjoyed such a wonderful, relaxing, entertaining week together. Two sons ages 16 and 11 were both equally engaged and enthusiastic about the week and I was able to explore, try new "camper" activities and just plain rest. Great also was having a week off from cooking, especially since the food was very good.
Cabins are far from roughing it. Bathroom, shower, queen and twin beds, plenty of lights and CLEAN.
Activities are well organized and safe for everyone. Sailing, canoeing, rowing, general sports activities, crafts (NOT the standard cheesy camper crafts, either), tennis, basketball. There are also great campfires every evening with a night sky not to be believed.
This is a place where kind, friendly strangers become family and tears upon departure are not unusual. If you believe that summers are for family and friends, this is a vacation you should strongly consider.
