Welcome!

Welcome to the Waynflete Summer website! We offer engaging summer adventures for children living in or visiting Southern Maine. Our aim is to encourage playful exploration in an environment that reflects the resources of the Waynflete community and the expertise of a knowledgeable and attentive faculty. As a division of Waynflete School, the Waynflete Summer camp philosophy and approach are grounded in the school’s core beliefs and mission statement.

The basics

  • Weekly and multi-week sessions
  • Unique day programs for campers ages 4 to 15 years
  • Two locations: Waynflete School campus in Portland’s West End and Waynflete’s outdoor sports complex at Fore River Fields, with optional free shuttle between locations

Age 4 (EC Camp)

The EC Flyers Camp is tailored to meet the unique needs of four-year-old campers. This camp offers a mix of structured activities and free play, indoors and out. Afternoon includes nap/rest time. Each week, EC campers explore a different theme through storytelling, creative movement, art, and music.

Campers rising to Grades K–1 (K-1 Camp)

Based in Waynflete’s beautiful new K-1 classroom, these active campers rising to Kindergarten and Grade 1 will jump right into summer fun with themed learning tracks, summertime arts and building activities, storytelling, music, group games and plenty of free play. The K-1 program, for campers aged 5 to 6 years old, moves at a faster pace than EC Camp. For K-1s, art is integrated throughout the day, and many group activities begin to help campers build community and teamwork.
