Amenities

The camp provides two separate latrines with flush toilets. One latrine has hot water and showers. There is a swimming dock, boat-launching areas, hiking on marked trails, and fishing with a NYS fishing license for all sixteen years and older.  Latrines are not to be used for washing dishes.  Water can be brought back to your cabins to wash dishes.

Please email donnacain.rentals@gmail.com for more information about this option.

Rental Rules
You are responsible for following all camp and rental cabin rules and ensuring that your guests do as well, including payment of daily camp fees or having a season pass for you and your guests.  A full listing of all camp and rental cabin rules will be provided to you when your reservation is confirmed and is available here: Camp Rules 2020.  When you have guests, you are required to be in attendance while they are at the camp. According to the park rules, you are not allowed to bring pets into the camp.

Eligibility & Time
Only a current Atlantic Division adult member twenty-one years and older may rent a cabin up to a limit of three continuous weeks. The minimum period is one week from June 28th to Labor Day. The weekly rental period is from Sunday at 6 p.m through the following Sunday at 5 p.m. All cabins must be cleaned by check-out for the next guest.

All individuals staying in rental cabins are required to sign waivers. Waivers can be found in your cabin and should be signed upon arrival at camp and provided to the Camp Director.

How to Book
Our online system allows you to see what dates are available at all of our cabins and register and pay online.  Below are links to each facility where you will find a calendar that  shows current availability.  The dates are color coded and will  either be “available,”  “booked” or “pending.” If it shows as available, click on the first and last day that you wish to rent.  Note:  the rental rules in place are loaded into the calendar meaning that if there is a 2-day, 3-day or 7-day minimum rental period, the calendar will not let you book a shorter period.  If you are interested in renting for less than the minimum, contact the Sebago registrar, Donna Cain at donnacain.rentals@gmail.com to determine if your request is possible and to book offline.

If the calendar is showing as pending, that means that someone else has requested those dates and their booking is being reviewed. If there is a date that you want that is not available to book, email Donna Cain to let her know in case there is a cancellation.

After filling out the online form, you will be directed to a PayPal page to make payment. Once payment is made, you will receive a confirmation email of your rental request. Note that this is not the final approval. After we have received your online form and payment your rental will be approved once your eligibility is confirmed including proof of current A.C.A. membership through your rental dates. In order to speed up your booking, send Donna Cain a photo of your ACA card. Once your booking is approved you will receive a confirmation email with additional details.

Guest policy Change
The Sebago guest policy that will be enforced this year is as follows:

ACA adult members may bring guests into camp. A guest is defined as any non-ACA member.  The same guest may only utilize the camp for one day or for one overnight and then will need to join the ACA in order to visit camp a second time or in order to stay any additional overnights. Prior ACA members may not be considered guests.  Members are responsible for their guests’ behavior. Members wishing to bring more than six guests must obtain prior permission from the camp director.  For each guest there is a $20 per calendar day daily fee for adults and a $10 per calendar day daily fee for minors.  All guests must see camp director upon arrival.

This means that if you have a non-ACA member as a guest, they may only stay for one night before either joining the ACA or will have to leave camp.   The reason for this rule is that Sebago is an ACA member benefit and while we encourage people to come into camp once to see if they want to be a member, thereafter they have to join to be able to come in for a second time. Note:  when you join as a new ACA member you get your first day’s daily fee waived.

ACA Membership Rate Change
The ACA National Committee changed the ACA membership rates in 2019.  There is no longer a trial or family membership.  Instead, each person age 10 and older must join the ACA to enter camp and the membership fee is $25 per person.

Daily Fees Change
This summer all daily fees for rental cabins renter and guests must be paid in advance. Following confirmation of your rental, you will receive an invoice with a link to PayPal from the camp director if you do not have a season pass.  Confirmation of these payments must be received before your rental begins.
