Camp Timanous campers hiking Mt. Katahdin, the highest mountain in Maine

Programs & Activities

We believe that developing skills already acquired and facing the challenges of learning new ones implants in a boy incentive for growth and self-improvement leading to enhanced maturity and self-confidence. Planning and organization are essential as boys find comfort in routine but the organizing hand is intended to guide not dominate. Planning is flexible and the individual camper has a wide range of choices of activities. Also, every boy has part of each day to do what he pleases, in contrast to the hectic, scheduled lives most of us experience during the school year. The necessary routine supplements rather than restricts the exercise of individual judgment and initiative. Timanous boys are never types; they are themselves.
