Medomak family camp- What a magnificent concept. It's for Grandparents, too! To be with the ones you love most yet separate and apart. The setting, the other campers, an outstanding staff, and wonderful activities and food. A treasure- Great time- My last time at camp was 58 years ago! I enjoyed this even more!
Jan Okey



How can I describe Medomak? Words can only voice a fraction of the emotions experienced here. Medomak gets under your skin and quietly takes a place in your heart.
Penny Otte



Thank you, Medomak. Thank you for creating a place where my son could catch his first fish, my daughter could paddle her first kayak, and the rest of us could just enjoy this beautiful setting and wonderful people - both campers and staff alike.
Andy Lincoln



We heard about Medomak through Frommer's Budget Travel Magazine- they said it was one of the best family camps in the nation and we can see why! The kids love the fun and independence here (which they often do not enjoy at home) and the parents like having a break without having to worry about the kids. Our 11 year old daughter asked me to write," I loved it, I loved it, I loved it, I loved it!" Thanks Medomak we're glad we found you!
The Blum Family



Our family had a wonderful vacation here at Medomak. It was well worth the long trip from Northern California. It met and exceeded our expectations. The counselors were all oriented to the well being of the guests and exuded a professionalism and attitude that reflected their genuine enjoyment of their jobs. They made our family's experience a great memory. Two thumbs up!
The Langsjoen Family



I feel so much a part of this community now. How can we leave?

Medomak is an easy place to go to but a hard place to leave!
Dean & Karen Randall



Although I have visited Medomak many times, informally, it is wonderful to be at family camp this week. So many memories of so many people and experiences are rejuvenated on each visit. I am so grateful for what Medomak was and is becoming.
Jeff Garrison



It warms our hearts to see how touched and affected other families and returning families are by the Medomak experience. We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for a second year and we will always cherish the memories. Looking forward to another visit!
The Littleton Family



We had a marvelous week filled with great activities as well as great conversation. This truly is a special place. The kind you can't wait to turn your friends on to. The counselors were absolutely fabulous with the kids which made the week a great vacation for the parents. Truly from the entire family we thank you for an extraordinary week.
The Pendleton Family



Our kids enjoyed this vacation more than our $7000 trip to Disney World.
The Pendleton Family



We really love our vacations at Medomak. Everyone feels so relaxed and friendly, and there are so many fun yet simple activities to look forward to. The kids love being with other kids their own age, and the adults can participate in their own activities or just hang out. Lazy afternoons at the lake include kayaking, swimming, reading and watching the kids have fun. The nights around the campfire are special with singing songs, telling stories, watching the kids perform, listening to the loons and counting the shooting stars. The food is always good and the staff make everyone feel at home. We treasure our time at Medomak for family memories that will last a lifetime.
The Mally Family



Our kid's favorite vacation!
The Mally Family



We don't want to come back next year; we want to come back tomorrow! Medomak met and surpassed our expectations!
The Rosenberg Family



We enjoyed ourselves immensely. Medomak runs a good program in a wonderful setting.
Nat Williams



Each year for a week, Medomak is our summer home. The natural beauty of the setting bears mention, but it is the staff that keeps us returning. From the kitchen to the ball field, each staff person gives fully of her/his personality, talents and energy in a way that suits campers of all ages. Never has such a happy and flexible group of employees been consistently assembled in one place!
Cathryn Stein



Even though we were there during the rainiest week in camp history, our family had a blast! We had the opportunity to spend all of our time together doing things we always mean to do but never get around to doing, like canoeing, fishing and kayaking.
Maribeth Visco



"It is one of the easiest ways to plan a vacation and it sure beats visiting relatives!"
L.B.



"What a great week! Whoever said, "Time flies when you're having fun" must of had Medomak in mind. The kids made friends the very first day. Our kids say, "This is the best vacation ever!"
Morrical Family



"I've only been here for fifteen minutes and I'm already having fun! "
C.S. age 9 1/2



"My son's eyes still sparkle when he talks about the week at Medomak! He is already asking about next year. As a single mom, I really have to scrimp and save for our vacations. But, our week at Medomak was so magical for us...and such a terrific bonding opportunity for our busy family...We'll start saving now!"
The Cutler's



"Thank you for the incredible week at Medomak. Upon returning some 30 years later from being a camper at Medokawanda, the sights, smells, values and experience were what I remembered about my time as a camper. Awakening these memories was AWESOME! The spirit of Medomak & Medokawanda continues."
Julie Ringler



"Another great summer at Medomak. This year was every bit as fun as years past; See you all next summer!"
The Stolberg/Robinson Family



"Another fabulous week at Medomak. This place is as close to heaven as we'll ever get! Not enough time to do all the great activities. Not a worry in the world here."
The Gerecht's



"This has absolutely been the best vacation I have ever taken. The staff have been warm, caring, helpful and inviting. The food incredible! My heart has been stolen by the water front. Just an incredible experience that will turn into many in the years to come."
The Garner Family



"Medomak was a wonderful experience for our family. After spending 3 yeras at a family camp of 1,000 people we really wanted something intimate and close to nature. This was perfect! All the families were great, the scenery beautiful. This place is an escape from everyday life!"
The Colberts



This is my 4th year at Medomak. I had such a wonderful time. We are coming back next year for our fifth year!
Nick age 10 Georgetown, Texas



Our first time at Medomak was awesome. Even on a rainy day with the weather trying to dampen our spirits, Medomak's spirit, staff and warmth did not let the weather prevail. We leave with new firsts, new friends, many great memories and a closer family. We hope to be back next year!
The McDougalls Falls Church Virginia



I never thought I'd find a place as special as Medomak. This camp is truely a magical place. Kids are free to be kids and grown-ups get to be kids too! All my fond memories of summer camp came flooding back. I asked my kids if they wanted to come back next year and the response was a very loud, "Yes, of course we do!" Medomak has definately touched our family and we will be here next summer!
The Ehrenreich's Ellicott City, MD



A very special experience...laying in bed and having the loons call in an otherwise silent world. The wind in the trees in the early morning. The silence on the lake as the canoe glides across the water. The peace and fun of the waterfront. The fun of being with others. the hospitality and welcome of the staff is truely great. thank you Frank Poland, Holly & George.
Paul Coats Crestwood, New York



Camp Medomak gave me lots of laughs! But most of all it gave me lots of friends! I would never give up these memories Camp Medomak. Staff was #1. This writing comes from a true heart.
Delaney age 8 Longwood, Florida



27 reunions all over the country....This was one of the best ever! Thank you Medomak friends.
The Folsom-Kovarik family Hillsborough, NJ



Medomak is a very special place. We have traveled to Maine for the past 15 years and have not experienced "inland" Maine like this before. The staff and activities allowed our family the opportunity to have fun together yet also enjoy time on our own.

Today's hectic pace and lifestyle of most families does not allow for much regular quality time outdoors. Medomak offers a venue where families can reconnect, nuture themselves, and renew. It is a fun place to play games and feel carefree.

As we wind down our summer and begin to gear up for another school year, we will fondly remember Medomak for its beauty and simplicity. Thank you for a wonderful week!
The Singer's Dallas, Texas



We have thoroughly enjoyed our week at Medomak. The staff was awesome and everyone went out of their way to make sure we had fun. I loved starting the day at sunrise on the lake, doing stretches with Colleen and then having breakfast with the whole family. Thanks to the entire staff for a lovely week. We hope to see you again.
The Gilmour's Wynnewood, PA



"What a delightful week! Friendly helpful counselors, wonderful food and something for everyone - from my 1-year old daughter to my (no age) self - All in a beautiful idyllic setting. We generally don't vacation in the same place twice, but if I were a betting gal, I'd bet we'll see Medomak again! Thanks to all."
Teresa Whisnant Venice, FL



"Our family included my wife, her parents, our two sons, and an aupair new to this country. The experience was a great one, especially for the kids and their mother. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. The accomodations are primative but adequate. The food was very good. The value is here as no other money has to be spent. Even a brown bag lunch is provided on campers day to explore. I highly recommend."
The Gray Families Aston, PA & Cape May, NJ



" WOW...Our 5th summer at Medomak. The week flew by and we all had so much fun. Already looking forward to next yearw/old friends and some new. Had a blast playing SCAG Ball- Thanks to Casey for inventing the game.A big THANK YOU to all the wonderful staff. You make us want to come back year after year and as long as our 3 boys want to we will!"

The Babin's Baton Rouge, LA



"Our first time at Medomak. I was very glad to discover this place via the knitter's reteat. We combined camp with the retreat as well as humanly possible. I'll never forget kayaking so close to a loonwhile a bald eagle soared overhead, or the swim to Loon Island."
Laura Abrahamsen Lakewood, OH



"This camp is off all of the following: the hook, the chain, the pizza and the wagon. This was my fifth year and I LOVED IT!" Chris age 13

Medomak is wonderful! Thanks for another fantastic year."

Nick age 11
The Behling's Georgetown, TX



"What day is it? The girls spent 3 hours in the lake today. We sat back and relaxed and watched 2 loons then out of nowhere, two bald eagles flew into the cove. We spent 45 minutes watching the eagles fishing and flying. It was amazing! Medoamk is truely a special place filled with special people. Thank you!"
Karen Pellegrini Bedford, NH

Judy Weisman Damariscotta, ME



"What was selected as an extended family trip for my parents 50th anniversary turned out extreamly well. It is hard to find a spot to engage my 75 year old father as my 5 year old nephew, but it happened here. It is the natural , green beauty and quiet lack of commercialism that struck me here. Don't feel you have to take in all the activities; explore. Look inside yourself, away from work and the world, and find a piece of your personal soul that you forgot or didn't know was there."
Dave Relyea Syracuse, NY



This is a place where kids are safe and have a blast. A place where we can relax and enjoy every second of the day. This is heaven on earth!
The Allen Family South Berwick, ME



This is our 5th summer at Medomak, and it is good- or even better- than our first. Wonderful staff, great campers, so much fun stuff to do. Our son, Dan, says this is his favorite place on earth. We always leave rested, relaxed and renewed. Thank you for all you do to help us feel that way. We love you.
The Miller Family Downington, PA



What a treasure we found here at Medomak!! The friends, food and fun will be remembered thru-out the year to come. Our first week here was so much fun that we're already planning for next year. If you are reading this on a rainy day, just know that the weather cannot stop the force of FUN and PLAY here! Our week was a dream come true. We loved it all!
The Quinn Family Huntsville, AL



Our 5th year at Medomak was our best yet. We love the traditions at Medomak ~ campfires, beer tasting, sunset cruise ~ and the new things as well ~ barn dance, herbal spa. It's all good. The second annual SCAG tournament was a highlight of the week. If you haven't tried Casey's game of soccer, croquet & golf, be sure you do. Great fun for all ages. Thanks for the memories and the relaxation!
The Lanyon Family Sutton, MA



Our first visit to Medomak. We have been able to relax, play, laugh, sleep, walk, run, swim, kayak, be crafty...most importantly spend amazing quality time with the people we love. We have also met some incredible people that will make a footprint on our lives forever. Overall, this has been the best family vacation we have ever taken and the least amount of work to enjoy it!
The Rich Family Tallahassee, FL



Our second summer at Medomak, we just couldn't stay away! I only wish we could stay longer. My children and their camp friends were practically inseparable and the laughter and childlike enthusiasm was a wonderful thing to behold. We are all looking forward to coming back next year!
The Whisnant Family Venice, FL



This palce is as close to heaven as we'll ever get! The kids love their sense of independence here. It's wonderful for them to feel so safe. Not a worry in the world here.

Coming to Medomak for our first time, we had no idea what to expect. Imagine our surprise when it turned out to be the best week of the summer!

"We enjoyed picking wild blueberries -what a treat, hiking to see Perry and Jitterbug (the camp cows), the Imposter game was a BIG hit, and my husband had a great time fishing as he caught an abundance of fish! It is so nice to go away and relax, learn something new and be quiet with nature. Thanks for the happy memories!
The Nicosias Chesterfield, NJ



"The memories made here are priceless!"

First camp, cabin, lake swimming, canoe, kayak, lobster, square dancing and the list goes on and on.”

Over the years, I did not find one that seemed to have what I wanted: lots of family time, a little parent time, great food, traditional camp activities, and flexibility. Medomak seemed a good fit, but could the website be accurate? From our first meal to our last campfire, we have enjoyed all the Medomak magic. This is an amazing place!”
The Johnson Family Vienna, VA

The Jerome Family Leesburg, VA

The Anzivino Family
