Center Day Camp (CDC) is a day camp run by the Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine.[1][2][3][4][5] It is located in North Windham, Maine, on the shores of Sebago Lake.[6][7][8] It was founded in 1948/1949.[9][10]

Program

The camp is co-ed.[9][11] Campers range from 3 to 15 years old. CDC provides a traditional Maine summer camp experience for campers on the wooded shores of Lake Sebago. Twenty minutes from Portland, Maine, CDC sits on 27 acres (110,000 m2) of woods, fields, and shoreline.[12] Generations of campers have spent their days at the camp's lake and learned new skills at the camp. CDC accepts campers of all faiths and backgrounds. CDC is accredited by the American Camping Association.[13]

Center Day Camp also has a Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program whose participants assist staff with group participation, activities, and lesson planning, developing skills to become future counselors.
