All of our encampments are fun, of course! But to keep things interesting, each encampment has its own theme! These encampment traditions have been around for decades - we hope you can join us to make some wonderful memories in any or all of the below sessions!
Women In the Woods:
July 6 - July 10
July 14 - July 27
Christmas in July
Ho Ho Ho! Who needs snow? It's Christmas with all the trimmings - carols, stockings, presents, a tree, a big turkey feast, plus a Christmas pageant and play. If we're good... there is even a special visitor from the North Pole!
In addition to Christmas in July, there are lots of other exciting activities! Sign up for a hike or canoe portage. Become an expert at sailing or paddling. Play on a softball, volleyball or soccer team. Join the drama squad and make this year's Christmas Play something to celebrate.
ATTENTION Lifeguard Wannabes: Our lifeguard training for qualified 15 year- old campers will be held entirely and only during second encampment.
July 28 - August 10
Camp Spirit - You Gotta Regatta
The Annual Canoe Regatta... you gotta love It! Every summer we compete against other camps at the annual Bear Mountain Association Canoe Regatta on nearby Lake Sebago.
Whether you paddle, or add to the fun by competing in the Camp Spirit contest, it's a day for fun and excitement. Back at camp, we are rewarded with a great dinner and a party!
August 11 - August 24
Halloween and Closing Play
Halloween in August is a treat! Design your own costume for the Halloween Monster Bash and get ready to trick-or-treat! You never know what surprises may be waiting for you!
Also during Fourth Encampment is our Closing Banquet and Play. If you like to act, sing, paint scenery or help backstage, then this is the encampment for you! Each summer ends with a banquet to remember and a standing ovation for our annual musical.
Past productions include Aladdin, Beauty & The Beast, The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, The Little Mermaid, Grease, Annie, Peter Pan, and Seussical the Musical. Actress or audience, it's a fantastic way to celebrate the end of another memorable summer.
