About our camp
There is no greater responsibility than caring for someone else's daughter and our campers' health and safety are our ultimate priorities. It’s also critical to us that they return home with an increased sense of self-worth and fulfillment that comes from the experiences and relationships that summer camp provides. Our goal is simple: to empower, encourage, and inspire.
Camp Somerset for Girls was founded in 2018 and boasts a spectacular brand new facility along East Pong in central Maine. Session lengths include two weeks, three and a half weeks and seven weeks. To “eliminate distraction and unhealthy competition”, camp Somerset is a uniform "light" camp, meaning that campers may wear what they wish from a limited selection of clothing, but do not need to match.
Facilities include a state of the art lakefront dining hall, a dance/gymnastics/fitness pavilion, arts & crafts barn, culinary center, an outdoor meeting pavilion, basketball/hockey/tennis courts, three massive sports fields, a swimming pool, and a quiet cove on East Pond, ideal for swimming, sailing, kayaking, waterskiing and more. One of a kind camper cabins include full bathroom facilities and sleep 10 campers and three counselors.
Owners and directors Kate Auerbach (a former attorney) and Josh Hahn (a former restaurateur) grew up together and are lifelong friends with more than 25 years of camping experience.
