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.


Registration for 2017 Islesboro Adventure Camp is coming soon. Please check back regularly for updates.

When registration opens in late April, forms will be found online here and printed copies at the Town Office.


We will be continuing our popular Swim & Explore program in 2017. Check back here for registration info in May.


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.
