Camp Tracy Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Daily Activities - What does my child do during the day at camp?

Activities include arts and crafts, archery, swimming, boating, theater, nature activities, Climbing Tower, and the Ropes Course. Indoor and outdoor games and lots of walking take place every day.

Registration must be complete and paid in full two weeks prior to the first day of each session. We are unable to accept registration any later than 10:00 am Friday before each week of camp. Historically, we have hit max capacity prior to the first week of camp. We encourage interested families to register and place your non-refundable deposit on each week to reserve your child’s spot at camp.

If someone presents with an illness while at camp, they will be brought to the nurses station until a parent or guardian can pick them up.

We have fully trained and certified health care staff on duty at all times and overnight staff are all trained and certified in First Aid and CPR. Our staff will contact parents/guardians in the case of any illness or injuries.

Camp Tracy is located at 302 McGrath Pond Road, in Oakland, Maine. Families should drop their children off at the Lodge, which is fully visible from the road. Maine’s Fenway and cabins areas are not staffed for drop off and pick-up.

All personal items should be labeled with your child’s name. Your child will be expected to carry their belongings throughout the day and up and down the trails.

The AYCC and Camp Tracy are not responsible for lost or stolen items.

The best way to prepare your camper for camp is to send them with the items on the packing list. Additionally, you may want to remind younger campers about the importance of following directions and listening to counselors. Lastly, consider reinforcing common rules such as “hands to yourself” and “treat others how you’d like to be treated.”
