About Camp Sebago

Sebago Leadership Camp helps boys in grades five through eight advance in the qualities essential to any man of character: a strong faith, a spirit of service, a commitment to excellence. Our campers learn about what it takes to be a leader and to grow in maturity in a fun and supportive atmosphere. 

The camp is sponsored by Sebago Leadership Camp, Inc. The spiritual activities of the camp are entrusted to Opus Dei, a Personal Prelature of the Roman Catholic Church.
