Pine Tree Camp Dirigo

Pine Tree Camp’s Dirigo Experience is a week-long summer program in August designed especially for Deaf and hard of hearing 11- to 14-year-olds! Focused on building confidence, leadership, and social skills through outdoor adventure, this new program is a great opportunity for kids to connect with others like themselves.

Pine Tree Camp is proud to announce our 2022 Dirigo Experience for Deaf and hard of hearing youth ages 11 to 14. This August 24-28 camp session is uniquely designed to help campers build confidence, develop social and leadership skills, and connect with other students like themselves through guided and immersive outdoor experiences at Pine Tree Camp in beautiful Rome, Maine. Although Pine Tree Society has determined that it will cost Pine Tree Camp $1,600 per camper to provide the Dirigo Experience, we are committed to welcoming all campers who can benefit, regardless of ability to pay tuition.

What does this mean?

If you are the parent or guardian or a youth who Is Deaf, apply for the Dirigo Experience today! No one will be turned away. We are happy to work with you to apply for funding for this program through grants available through the Percival P. Baxter Foundation. In the event you are rejected by the Foundation, please ask us about Pine Tree Society’s Open Door policy, which ensures no one is ever turned away due to inability to pay.
