Thronton Academy Homestay Program

Thornton Academy’s Homestay Program offers an alternative to dormitory living for international students seeking language and American cultural immersion. In turn, families are given a wonderful opportunity to learn from their Homestay students, sample new traditions, cuisines and languages, teach their children about ambassadorship, and share in the excitement of their Homestay sons and daughters as they begin their great American adventure. It’s a time of discovery for the student, as well as the Homestay family.

Pine Tree Camp
Pine Tree Camp

Pine Tree Camp opened its gates in 1945 as a summer camp for children with physical disabilities. Over the years, it has evolved into a place where children and adults with disabilities are able to participate in all the recreational activities for which Maine is known all year long. The barrier-free setting, along with an amazing staff, ensure that activities like swimming, fishing, kayaking, hiking, boating and even camping in a tent under the stars are completely accessible to all. Participating in activities that take people beyond their disability has a tremendous impact. It builds self-esteem and self-confidence. That experience coupled with meeting friends who understand and experiencing the feeling of acceptance is transformational.

We are proud to be Maine’s only American Camping Association-Accredited camp for people with disabilities.
