About Us

Chop Point is a recognized non-profit corporation operating multiple Christian ministries, including:

  • a summer camp in Maine for teenagers from all over the world
  • a K-12 school in Maine for local students, plus a small boarding program
  • a summer camp in Nicaragua serving disadvantaged children, also functioning as a social service project for school and church groups from the U.S

We strive to keep campers’ and students’ fees as affordable as possible. To do this, and still maintain the level of programs that we offer, we rely somewhat on outside donations. We have been provided with generous support from former campers, students, staff and friends. Many of the major improvements to the grounds, facilities and equipment are a direct result of their commitment to Chop Point. If you’re in the area, why not come for a visit? We warmly welcome visitors any time.

Less than 10% of your donation goes toward other expenses. Specifically, 2% is spent on fundraising, and 7% is used for administrative costs.
