Camp Androscoggin is an all-boys summer camp in Wayne, Maine, and one of the oldest in the state. It is ACA (American Camp Association) accredited. It was founded in 1907 by Edward M. Healy, who became President of the American Camping Association (ACA) in 1916 shortly before his death.
The camp has an average intake of between 225 and 275 boys aged 8 to 15 years, and takes enrollments nationally and internationally.
Camp Androscoggin was established in 1907 on Sans Souci Island, since renamed "Androscoggin Island", in Lake Androscoggin. During the camp's inaugural summer, only 7 campers were enrolled. In 1937, a new "Junior Camp" was added on the lake's shore, which was initially for campers aged 8 to 11 years. The two camps briefly combined during World War II due to a fuel shortage, and combined permanently inland in 1972 after a fire. Androscoggin was the site of the third and fourth Seeds of Peace camps in 1995-96.
Camp Androscoggin is part of the Central Maine Camp League (CMCL), competing with Cobbossee, Caribou, Manitou, and others camps in sports, including baseball, soccer, tennis, basketball, archery, and swimming.
Land sports take place on its two baseball fields, two soccer fields, three basketball courts, twelve tennis courts, archery and rifles ranges, and a climbing wall. A recent addition to sport facilities is the Foster Fieldhouse, with a high school regulation-sized basketball court.
Arts and crafts, pottery, woodworking, and animation take place in an arts center, and a theater holds musical talent shows and plays, and the final event of the camp's Color War, during which campers sing Alma Mater and fight songs.
