Vacations at Ferry Beach
A family vacation, a fun and easy summer destination for a group of relatives and friends, or a quiet personal getaway are all possible at Ferry Beach.
Vacationers can enjoy the Ferry Beach experience without signing up for a conference, including our private sandy beachfront, wooded Grove and fire pit, a dining-hall meal plan, fun campus activities, morning worship, and most Ferry Beach-provided evening programming. While conference-provided activities are only for registered conferees, there may be activities open to vacationers for a fee. Daily schedules of events are provided.
Wake up near the ocean and fill the day with however you see fit—there is plenty to do on campus and the rest of Maine is your playground. Vacationers have the option of staying in Ferry Beach lodging or camping in the Grove. Although the dorms are not available for vacationing during Youth Camp weeks, the Grove will be open for camping, as well as our quaint Claflin cottage and Metz Village cabins. Vacationers may choose a meal plan at Ferry Beach or explore local restaurants. (At least one member of your group must be a member.)
There are many places for fun family activities in Saco, including water parks, miniature golf, and a drive-in movie theater. Old Orchard Beach’s pier and amusement park offers games and entertainment for both the young and young-at-heart. Sightseeing, eating, and shopping are plentiful in historic downtown Portland (approx. 30 minute drive), and a variety of fine dining and seafood restaurants are all around. Nearby bike and hiking trails are a great way to explore the area’s natural beauty!
