Camp Pinecliffe

Camp Pinecliffe, founded in 1917, is a full season private summer camp for girls, ages 7 to 15. Camp Pinecliffe, founded almost a century ago among the lakes and sturdy pines of Maine, is a private summer camp for girls ages 7 to 15.

We are focused on the individual camper, encouraging each girl to become the best that she can be, while living happily and successfully with others. Since 1917, a plaque with our motto, “Do the Thing That Counts and Then Don’t Count It,” has hung in our Main Bunk and truly exemplifies Pinecliffe’s philosophy. Our girls leave camp each summer, eager to return, with many happy memories of new things learned, new friends, and great experiences.
