We’re roaring towards the grand finale of summer 2018! While the days are technically getting shorter (the amount of daylight is decreasing), we’ve discovered a way to fit as much into our daylight hours as humanly possible. The days are long, full and joyous. We’ve gone from a very small camp with most campers out on a wilderness trip to a full camp on Thursday afternoon with everyone back from their trips. It is nice to be together as one community for our final few days here.
Many campers participated in a Puffin Watch cruise on Monday evening. Tuesday was our final Tent Day with outings to Popham Beach, hiking in Acadia National Park, and a nature trip to the Maine State Aquarium. Now campus is alive with final activities such as the 7-week Ospreys putting the finishing touches on their boats, final group night on Thursday, Carnival and final cabin night on Friday, and our Waterfront and Field Day on Saturday. The end of the camp season is always memorable as we try to fit as much as we can into these last few days. We are grateful for this very special opportunity with our amazing campers.
