Best Family Getaways: Maine

Maine Family Camp

Nostalgic for those endless summer days of sailboats and ropes courses, tennis lessons and talent shows, cookouts and scary stories by the fire? More and more overnight camps are offering family programs that let you relive it all—with your entire clan in tow. Some of the best, including Camp Wyonegonic (pictured) and Camp Kippewa, can be found on Maine Camp Experience (schedule and prices vary). “I liked being in the dining hall watching my dad dance after meals,” says seven-year-old camper Zoe Fleischman. Don’t be surprised if you, too, find yourself making lanyard bracelets well into the fall.

Pack This: Appaman’s anorak-style windbreaker in Seagrass ($60) has a roll-away hood and a jersey lining—a lightweight cover-up for breezy nights and the occasional summer shower. —Heidi Mitchell
