  • Wedding: May 2014

Is August 24th the only day you are willing to do it?  Because that is very close to the end of camp, so you would have difficulty getting any working camp to host your wedding then.  Early September or late May might be your sweet spot.  It is getting a little late for booking weddings (especially for places that hold 200) in 2014 – some of the places I checked out were fully booked over a year out.

Suggestions from a list I formed:

Club Getaway

Camp Danbee

Camp Hi-Rock

Camp Kinderland

Camp Kiwanee

Camp Lenox

camp Mah-Kee-Nac

Camp Marshall

Camp Starfish

Camp Taconic

Camp Watitoh

Camp Wing

  • Wedding: August 2014

@abillionmoments It sounds like you are describing my wedding. We are getting married on Aug 30 at Camp Kiwanee. I checked out every camp in New England back in April and ended up settling for this date because it was the only one left at the venue we loved. Does it have to be a saturday? If you would be willing to do a Sunday I am sure you could get something still. If not, could you wait until next summer and book now? I also found that a LOT of camps I looked in to were not actually budget friendly. Since the idea has caught on it seems the camps are raising their prices. Here are some places I checked out. I am happy to answer questions just PM me.


Camp Evergreen

Camp Kiwanee – Our Venue

Camp Lenox

Camp ogontz

Camp Wing

Camp Dennison

Pinewood Lodge – Camp Ground no cabins

The Concord Scout House – No Cabins

Camp Cody

Camp Takajo

Whispering Pines

Migis Lodge

Point Sebago – Camp Ground not cabins

Camp Hoffman

Not sure this is still helpful, but if you’re willing to look at Maine, there are a bunch of summer camps here! I’m getting married 9/20 at Fernwood Cove in Harrison – we also looked at Camp Waziyatah which is nearby. mainecamps.org is a good resource, so many that we contacted do weddings (varying prices though and I’m sure varying availability). We chose Fernwood because it was affordable ($4K for the entire camp for the entire weekend) and gorgeous. Waziyatah is the same price, and more traditionally summer camp like. super fun! We also went to a wedding a year or two ago at Maine Teen Camp in southern maine that was SO FUN!
