amp Friendship Maine is a rustic residential  summer camp on the rockbound coast of Maine, approximately 400 miles from New York City. The camp is located on a 60 acre island in the small lobster-fishing village of Friendship. The island is close to the mainland shore and  accessible in 10 minutes by boat. Two-thirds of the island is designated as a forever wild preserve, with pristine topography of tidal coves and woodland habitat for a variety of wildlife.
