Capital Apple Macintosh User Group (CAMP)

Buker Community Center Augusta , ME
Contact: Mike Knight


In late 1993, Augusta, Maine resident Carroll Ayer wondered why no consumer support group for the Macintosh computer existed in the capital area. The Capital Apple, Mac, Performa User Group (“CAMP”) organized to fill that void.

CAMP is a Maine nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation whose members have banded together to share their expertise and increase their computing knowledge. CAMP is not sponsored by or affiliated with any vendor or commercial organization.

Meeting Information

The most popular feature of our meetings is an unstructured discussion in which members bring up problems they have run into in using their computers, software and peripherals. It is always a surprise to learn that someone else has grappled with the same difficulty you are facing. Nothing beats collaboration in a group setting for brainstorming and problem-solving.

Our monthly meetings have two major components: 1) A 30 minute open question and answer period based on recent member experience 2) A 45-60 minute presentation showcasing software or hardware topics. We make sure there is something for everyone at each meeting. CAMP meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month at Buker Community Center, 22 Armory St, Augusta, ME 04330.
