Camp Knickerbocker is seeing substantial updates to the program, staff, and facilities:

  • International Staff: We are happy to announce that Camp K will be hosting up to 18 international staff this summer from all over the world! Staff will be arriving in early June and will be employed through the Y throughout the summer. They come with specialized skills such as martial arts, karate, photography, swim instruction, a love for a variety of sports, a passion for the arts, and more! The Y is excited to expand our diversity and educate our campers and domestic staff about new cultures and traditions, all while celebrating our differences. 
  • Day Camp: Traditional Day Camp will be broken into three age groups: Explorers (Ages 5/6 years), Navigators (Ages 7/8 years), and Wayfinders (Ages 9/10 years). Traditional camp has limited space in each group, so sign up sonner than later if your camper would enjoy the traditional camp setting traveling in a unit with like-aged campers and staff who will lead activities at each program area. 
  • Specialty Camp: This summer, our specialty camp list has grown substantially. Click HERE to take a peek at all of our new and returning favorite specialty camps. Lots of these camps are designed for the younger ages, but most focus on ages 11+. 
  • Adventure Camp: This summer, our adventure camp list has grown substantially. Click HERE to take a peek at all of our new and returning favorite specialty camps. Lots of these camps are designed for the younger ages, but most focus on ages 11+. 
  • CampDoc Online: CampDoc is a secure online network that will allow families to complete all health forms, waivers, and choose activities for the Pathway Program ahead of time, if their camper is signed up for that program. If a camper's CampDoc profile is incomplete upon check-in of their session, they will not be permitted on-site until their profile is complete. In order to keep our campers safe, we insist that all medical forms, emergency contact forms and pick-up authorizations are completed upon check-in. CampDoc is only required for families who are sending their campers to Camp K (this excludes CLC camps and Y Arts Camps).

Maine’s Childcare Subsidy Program helps eligible families pay for child care/camp so they can go to work, go to school, or participate in job training programs. Visit or call 1-877-680-5866 for more information on how to apply. CLC does not accept subsidy for sports/specialty camps. 


Summer camp scholarships are granted to families who need financial support who are not eligible for CCSP through the state, based on income. Please be sure to apply for scholarships through the Y early, as we grant dollars on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can find a scholarship application on our websites. 


CampDoc is a secure network used to collect campers’ medical and emergency contact information electronically. If you had an account through CampDoc last season, please make sure all of the information is updated for 2023. Only camps offered on-site at Camp Knickerbocker will be required to fill out CampDoc.
