CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Waziyatah is the highest rated camp in Maine and was recently listed as one of the Top 50 summer camps in the United States. Wazi was chosen as the ideal summer camp location for the hit Disney Channel TV show "Bug Juice". We are known for our incredibly close-knit and inclusive community that welcomes kids for who they are, with no "cliques" or divisions between previous and first-time campers. Camp Waziyatah is a coed overnight summer camp in Southern Maine owned by Gregg and Mitch Parker.

Now in our 97th summer, Wazi sits on 130 acres of land on a 3.5 mile private lake. We offer 30+ camp activities like water skiing, sailing, hiking, skateboarding, theater, arts, sports, climbing wall, and horseback riding, which are all included in tuition. Campers experience overnight camping trips and hiking with our Adventure Bound program, and Trip Week allows all campers to enjoy at least one overnight campout.

Kids at Wazi grow, become more independent, learn valuable social skills, and make lifelong friends, all while having a fantastic time. Our well-vetted and background checked counselors are educators, childcare specialists, and university students with years of experience and are certified to teach their activities. All waterfront counselors are trained and lifeguard certified through the red cross.
