Facilities & Location
Quinebarge is situated on 65 acres of pine forest overlooking pristine Lake Kanasatka, with top notch facilities, from cabins to the waterfront. Our rustic feel harkens campers back to our roots even as the modern world wraps around us allowing kids be themselves without too much technological interference.
Center of Camp & Kenly Hall
At the center of it all is Kenly Hall – our Dining Hall and office, filled with plaques representing each year of cabins and campers, since 1936. Just outside are picnic tables, the woodshop, a basketball court and activity center, and of course our big bell – rung several times a day to announce activities and meals.
Our rustic but clean cabins are equipped with electricity, comfortable bunks, and storage cubbies for up to 100 campers plus staff. Girls and Juniors use in-cabin bathrooms, while the Boys have a dedicated Wash and Shower House. Cabins are situated within our Boys’ and Girls’, and Juniors’ Areas, with up to 9 people per cabin.

Our Waterfront Program area sits inside a quiet cove, with a dock to separate our 3 swimming areas. Campers love jumping off the raft and diving board on a hot day! In the boathouse, they’ll find toys and games to use in the water or on the sand, along with lifejackets and paddles for adventures in canoes, sailboats, and more!
With an Arts & Crafts loft upstairs and ping pong tables, gym mats, and open space down stairs, our Rec Hall is the perfect spot for a barn dance, or to spend time on a rainy day.
Sports Field & Tennis Courts
Our large field is perfect for team sports, and includes a backstop for a game of kickball or baseball. Next door are our two clay tennis courts, where campers can imagine themselves winning the French Open.
On our climbing tower, low elements, high ropes course and zip line that are certified to ACCT standards annually, campers can challenge themselves in a secure environment. For those who prefer to stay on the ground, our archery range lies in a clearing just beyond.
Stables & Riding Ring
A six horse stable and riding ring are just the spot for campers to improve their equestrian skills. More advanced riders can step out of the ring into 30 acres of forest, criss-crossed with trails wide enough for riding.
Each spring, thousands of tadpoles hatch in our nature pond, where campers can watch them transform into frogs as the summer continues. Just a few steps away is our Nature Center, filled with everything campers need for learning about the natural world.
While Monkeytown has existed since 1940, the current (and third version) Monkeytown is brand new, with platforms and counters designed and built with campers and safety in mind. When it’s not in use for the carnival, the area is used for cabin-sleepouts in the fresh air – groups sleep on the raised, walled, platforms that are lit by tiki torches and a campfire.
Tucked away on a forest trail is our tenting area, where each cabin spends one night every other week. With a fire pit, space for 20, and a mix of platforms and soft forest floor for bedding, it’s the perfect base camp for a night of stargazing and cabin fun.
Nearly 30 acres of the Quinebarge property is pure forest, including a full 20 acres of trails and wetlands. It’s a ready-made nature center, where campers and staff alike can gather, check out the wildlife, or simply enjoy the peaceful setting. Our Labyrinth offers a space for reflection.
Camp Quinebarge is located within 2.25 fours from Boston, 2 hours from Portland, Maine, and 5 hours from New York City, and is easily accessible from I-93 and NH Route 16.
