Athletic Facilities

The Biddeford Campus welcomes your camp or other active gathering with a range of athletic sites. Whether your program requires turf or grass fields, a softball field, a beach volleyball court, or a gymnasium, this coastal campus is equipped. Staying near to our New England roots, our site is also furnished with an ice arena that gives your guests access to Maine’s winter sports through three seasons.

Overnight Accommodations

During the summer, our Biddeford Campus provides comfortable lodging for your multi-day event. We offer overnight accommodation options to suit your preferences and budget. Suite-style apartments are furnished with bedrooms, kitchens, air conditioning, living areas, and bathrooms. With full-sized and twin-sized beds, the suites provide even a large number of guests with the amenities and privacy of home. Traditional corridor accommodations supply a more modest yet pleasant option, with bedrooms hosting two to three guests and centrally located lounges, bathrooms, and kitchens.
