Camp Pondicherry is nestled in the foothills of the beautiful White Mountains in Bridgton, Maine. Pondi sits on 658 acres of unspoiled woodlands and fields. A private waterfront on Adams Pond and many scenic trails add to the peace and tranquility of this wondrous
camp just 40 miles from Portland.
The site has 4 winterized buildings including a large Chalet and a 200 year old farmhouse. It also has six campsites for seasonal camping, and flush toilets. Other facilities include a challenge course, sports field and archery range.
Pondicherry is open year round. In the summer, Pondi hosts a resident camp led by a trained staff and serves girls 7-17. It is also available for troop and groups at all other times of the year.
