With mountains, lakes, and coastlines to offer, New England sleepaway camps take kids away from devices and out into nature. After a full year of school and screens, the unplugged experience of a wilderness overnight camp helps kids get back to the basics of having fun and exploring the environment. Time at camp means making new friends, learning new skills, and maybe having an adventure or two. And the memories made at a sleepaway summer camp last a lifetime.

We’ve rounded up some of the best wilderness sleepaway camps in New England for kids to unplug. These programs offer everything from hiking and kayaking to survival skills and campfire cooking.
