Founded in 1908, Camp Icaghowan sits on 164 acres, including a beautiful 44-acre island. Lake Wapogasset provides the perfect backdrop to adventure on the island. Icaghowan features tree houses, target sports, water activities, horses, and more.

Camp Icaghowan offers programs for ages seven and up, starting with our Summer Sampler and Traditional Camps, Horse Camp, Two-Week Camp, teen programs, canoe tripping, and teen leadership. There is even fun for families during our winter, spring, and fall Family Camp weekends.

At Icaghowan, we ground everything in the 5-core values of Y of the North – Caring, Honesty, Equity, Respect, and Responsibility. These values are present in our everyday camp culture and Community Commitment.
