Your support is essential to our mission of providing a year-round environment for children that promotes a healthy, active lifestyle while building critical life skills. We do all this while preserving critical open space that welcomes the public to come and cherish this unique landscape.
We offer superior quality yet affordable programs for children all year long under the direction of a volunteer board of directors and accredited by the American Camp Association and licensed by the state of Maine. In addition, Camp Ketcha stewards 107 acres of precious land on the seacoast which is open to public for hiking the trails and enjoying the woods, marsh and wildlife. We work to ensure that the treasure of Camp Ketcha is here to be discovered and enjoyed by all, young and old.
The recent tough times are no excuse for neglecting our children or for backing off our commitment to be the best for them. Some of this year’s achievements are:
- Expanded a high quality outdoor oriented after school program.
- Improved the efficiency of our Barn operations with improved pastures, fencing, horse shelters and the addition of a utility vehicle to speed routine chores.
- Received very positive feedback from the families we have served and made some requested improvements in operations.
- Added a well received Montessori Pre-school meeting a need for that programming in our community.
- Added new universally accessible ropes course elements that allow all to participate regardless of their disability.
- Expanded our adventure work with local special education classrooms to help develop critical social and behavioral control skills to the students.
We ask that you consider a donation to Camp Ketcha so we may continue to achieve goals like these and have a positive impact on our community. Donations help keep all our programs as affordable as possible. We offer as many scholarships as we can and we wish to do more. Thank you so much for considering us among the many requests you receive. We appreciate your consideration and hope you will join us in helping to support the treasure of adventure and learning at Camp Ketcha.
