About Us

Town of Islesboro Recreation Department was created to provide recreational programming, facilities, and equipment for Islesboro residents and visitors of all ages.

The Recreation Committee is committed to enriching lives through community activities, teaching life-skills and fun recreational programming for Islesboro residents. We aim to provide valuable, safe and inclusive recreational opportunities using Islesboro's outdoor resources, in collaboration with Islesboro and outside organizations, to enrich each resident’s life.

THE RECREATION DEPARTMENT IS COMMITTED TO PROVIDING PLAY FOR ALL. Do not let the price of Camp or Swim & Explore stop you from joining. Scholarships and reduced rates are available!  Email for more information with a subject of recreation assistance.


We are thrilled to announce that we have hired Ryan Martin to lead Islesboro Adventure Camp this summer.  With a wealth of knowledge about gardening, the great outdoors and some musical skills to boot, our campers are in for a great experience this summer.  More about our other counselors to come....

We are excited to bring back the Swim & Explore Program this summer.  We will have 45 minute swim lessons and 45 minutes of free swim at the Waldo YMCA capped off with a field trip in the Camden/Rockland/Belfast area. 

2017 S&E Dates:  June 5, 12, 19, 26, August 2, 9.

2017 Fee is $90 for 6 sessions (That is a steal at $15/day)!

S&E registration materials can be found here.  Printed copies are available at the Town Office.  Please return registration materials to the Town Office with a check made out to the Town of Islesboro - S&E.  

Swim & Explore is a six-week course offered in July and August to encourage the youngest members of the Islesboro community to build valuable life-skills and learn to swim. Swim & Explore is a weekly field trip to the Waldo YMCA where students take a swim lesson and then spend the rest of the day exploring some of the wonderful parks and libraries along the coast from Rockland to Belfast. This program is heavily subsidized by the Town of Islesboro and is offered to residents at $15/day.
