An activity at Pine Island Camp, a boys summer camp in Maine.

The Pine Needle

"He returned from each of the summers at Pine Island a more thoughtful, mature, and compassionate soul than when he arrived. There is no higher praise that I can offer than to share that result."
—Pine Island Parent

The Pine Needle, published every winter, is the annual newsletter of Pine Island Camp whose origins go back to the camp's earliest days.  Since 2007, we have also been producing an on-line Mid-Summer Pine Needle. Produced entirely by Pine Island Campers in the middle of the camp season, it offers a wonderful glimpse into the spirit and activities of each Pine Island summer while it is in progress.

The following issues of the Pine Needle are available to download as Adobe PDFs.  To receive the Pine Needle by mail, please contact us.

Some back issues of the Pine Needle and Mid-Summer Pine Needle are available as Adobe PDFs in the Pine Needle Archive.
