Activities

"Boredom" isn't a word often associated with Camden. When you're located on the beach, have a ski resort in town, and host plenty of hiking trails, you're pretty much covered no matter the season. So yes, all of those taxes and high living costs are probably worth it.

Culture Summary

Although the town is small, Camden's sense of community provides for some truly great cultural events. The Camden Shakespeare Festival delights residents with summer long Shakespeare plays in the outdoor Camden Amphitheatre. The Camden Opera House is another cozy venue to see live performances. For those who would like to explore the downtown area, the High Street Historic District is as quaint as a New England town can get.
