Summer 2019 has got some amazing trips in store!  We’re bringing back our popular optional trips, such as White Water Rafting, Best of Boston, Best of Portland, and Freeport Outlets, as well as our Rock Climbing trip, that we added last year.  To sign up for any of our trips, please send an email to, or send us the “Trips and Options” sheet found in our Pre-Camp Packet.  As we get ready to kick off our summer here at camp, please remember to fill out and send in the White Water Rafting and/or the Rock Climbing waiver(s) if your camper plans on being on either of those trips.

White Water Rafting: Experience a “camp away from camp,” while on the White Water Rafting Trip! This 2-day overnight trip includes meals, a campfire with s’mores and a comfortable night in furnished log cabins before joining professional guides rafting on the river for the day.

Best of Boston: Check out the sights of Boston while on a Duck tour and take a historical stroll down the freedom trail. Visit Faneuil Hall & Quincy Market for shopping and lunch. End the day dining at one of Boston’s finest restaurants. This trip includes $50 spending money.

Jump on a Windjammer and explore the Portland bay on a two-hour sailing trip with Portland Schooner Company. Next, swing by one of Portland’s best seafood restaurants for lunch before some shopping and ending the trip at the Portland Head Lighthouse. This trip includes $40 spending money.
