What age camper do you accept?
Campers at Ghostlight Theater Camp range in age from 9 to 17. Our youngest campers (9-11) have the option of taking part in our Emerging Artists Program, which is a shorter, 10-day program that introduces these young campers to their first away-from-home sleepover camping experience. Our 3- and 6-week sessions are open to all ages, 9-17.
Where do campers typically come from? How do they get to camp?
Most of our campers come from various parts of New England, as well as New York and New Jersey, but we have had campers and staff come from all over the world. Most families drive their campers to our location in Oakland, ME, but we can also make arrangements for transportation from Portland International Jetport. Many have also bussed to camp together with other campers. Details about transportation will be included in the handbook that you will receive prior to camp.
How many people are in each cabin?
We make room in our cabins for up to 10 campers and three staff members. We maintain a counselor to camper ratio of 1:4 in most cabins and an overall staff to camper ration of 1:2.
How are campers divided into cabins?
Campers are grouped according to their age range and stated gender identity. We respect and honor all camper and staff member gender expressions.
What is the food like?
Meals are a special time where we all come together from our various corners of camp and slow down to commune with each other. Coming from classes, rehearsals, and pool time means it is important that the quality, healthfulness, and variety of food we serve supports the growth of our campers in their time at camp.
All meals include a rotating main course along with a breakfast or salad bar, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. We accommodate all allergens and are 100% nut-free. The dining pavilion is open throughout the day for cold juice and fresh fruit snacks for that mid-rehearsal boost.
Dessert at camp is a real treat and often highlights ingredients of local farmers (we try to source our meals as locally as possible to reduce our carbon footprint.)
