Maine Arts Camp Location and Facilities

For our arts based camp, we have found the perfect facility to support our programming and philosophy. We have made a long term move to Colby College in Waterville, Maine starting the summer of 2017. Like Maine Arts Camp, Colby College has a true commitment to the arts. Maine Arts Camp will benefit from facilities that can't be replicated at a typical overnight camp. With multiple painting, metal jewelry/stained glass/sculpture, drawing studios, an on campus theater & two dance studios, a full commercial kitchen for culinary classes, a state of the art photography studio, classrooms for film making and more, our professional instructors and teachers are able to bring high quality programming to our creative campers.

Besides the arts, Colby College has tennis courts, fields, a swimming pool, and a 10 acre lakefront on Messalonskee Lake for kayaking/canoeing.

We are also fortunate to have an on campus food service, Bon Appetit, which provides dining service at Colby College.


Waterville is only three hours from the Boston area, directly off I-95. It has a nice downtown area complete with hotels, restaurants, shops, two hospitals and easy access to the coast of Maine. In addition, Colby College has a beautiful art museum right on campus. With nearly 8,000 works and more than 38,000 square feet of exhibition space, the Colby College Museum of Art has built a collection that specializes in American and contemporary art with additional select collections of Chinese antiquities and European paintings and works on paper. The Museum serves as a teaching resource for Colby College and is a major cultural destination for the residents of Maine and visitors to the state.
