Hey, Camp Folks!
Here at Everything Summer Camp, we’re always singing the praises of nearly 300 summer camps with whom we’ve formed a great relationship. That’s why today I’m shining our camp spotlight in the gorgeous state of Maine to feature Camp Timanous—just a short ways from the Atlantic Ocean.
Summer days at Camp Timanous are spent outside on the beautiful shores of Panther Pond, nestled among tall pine trees. At Camp Timanous, boys are given the chance to have new experiences and acquire independence. Timanous campers find friendships and positivity among their peers.
Steeped in tradition that goes back to 1886, Camp Timanous has stood the test of time, helping to cultivate their campers’ potential in mind, body, and spirit. Founders Luther and Charlotte Gulick launched their children’s camp in Gales Ferry, Connecticut originally. The Gulicks came to be known as pioneers in youth education as they showed the positive results camping delivered for children.
The camp remained under Gulick ownership until 1955 when the camp was sold to Johnny Suitor who had been with the camp for the previous 46 years working his way from a young camp counselor in 1936 to the camp director! Johnny and his wife Marti directed the camp for more than three decades until 2018 when Garth Altenburg stepped up as the latest and current director.
He’s maintained the essence of the Gulick’s philosophy of using camp to further our youth in mind, body, and spirit. Camp Timanous boys 8 to 15 go on camping trips to awesome places across Maine. And, of course, there’s tons of fun right at Camp Timanous with awesome activities such as Archery and Riflery, Canoeing, Kayaking, and Paddleboarding, Climbing Wall, Handicrafts and Woodworking, Nature and Exploring the Outdoors, Sailing, Sports (Basketball, Soccer, Tennis, and more), Waterskiing, Swimming, and plenty more.
