With the end of the summer barreling down on us (2 weeks left?
I had a post dinner conversation with one of the music instructors at camp.
What is going on is something more fundamental, and worth acknowledging, because it holds lessons for us for the whole year.
Campers sleep well.
We know how lucky we are here at MTC.
Friday is the deadline for extending! We'd love to have your camper stay with us for the final days of camp because we have so many amazing things planned for our last week of the summer. From crazy unique classes not yet offered during the summer to Festivus, our whole carnival day, and of course closing campfire!
If you are interested in having your camper extend please send an e-mail over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our first week of Second Session is in the books! Week two has two great trips in store for the campers. Our first trip of the week that will be going out is the White Water Rafting trip! If your camper is signed up to go white water rafting, they can look forward to an amazing experience with North Country Rivers on the Kennebeck River. The trip begins with the campers enjoying a nice dinner, provided by the rafting company, followed up with a night time campfire and s’mores. The next morning we will have breakfast and then go rafting down the river during most of the day. After we have conquered the rapids, we will have lunch and head back to camp. Other than the rafting trip, we have the Freeport shopping trip this week as well! For this trip we will travel to the Freeport shopping outlets in Freeport, ME. The variety of discounted shopping stores in the area is always a blast for the campers who go on this trip. We look forward to these two trips this week and hope your camper will be there to experience them with us!
Camper Families, as our 2 and 6 week departure is drawing to a close, you all should of received travel confirmations confirming either flight information or pick up plans. If you have not, please do get in touch. A friendly reminder that pick ups are between 10-2 unless otherwise agreed. Thank you!
First week of activities are completed, and it was another great week! The weather has just been perfect so far this summer and it continued yet again. All the classes were out and about, the birds were singing, music playing. The campers were smiling and having fun!
From taking a dip in the lake, trying out wakeboarding, learning new instruments, unleashing their artistic talents or trying a new sport or fitness class; They had plenty to do this week.
This week the LTs prepared and put on a Dance for Evening Program. They've spent the last activity week deciding a theme, picking out decorations to make and order, deciding what snacks and activity stations to have and worked very closely with the EP Coordinators to ensure the dance was ready. The Dance was a huge success and enjoyed by all. Next week the LTs will be hosting the Counsellors in Training from Camp Wyonegonic to give a tour of our camp facilities as well as chat about the similarities in our programs.

Wow, what a week of Evening Programs! We began with experiencing culture and tasting foods from around the world with International Night. We then had the LTs take the stage with their LT dance, Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer themed! With tons of stations to epic music, it sure was a winter blast! Following the dance of the summer, Camp-a-palooza, never been done evening program, knocked the camp community into the festival of a lifetime! From music, dance, theatre, there was much joy to experience at this MTC festival! The next day history was made! Pop Idol ALL STARS, where non cabin staff and head staff (including Matt, Monique, Nicky, and Mark!) went into cabins to create memorable lip sync performances. The next day we went back to 1950’s America with music, costumes, and performances by the angelic music department. Following the dance that rocked everyone's socks, was a relaxing movie night under the stars. The following evening was a time to recharge, both mind and body with Zen Den. To end out the week, celebrity Jesse Ruben came to perform at camp, with opening acts Chloe Jones & Ajay Henry! What a delightful week packed with exciting and memorable evening programs. Tune in next week for our final stretch, leading up to this session’s festivus!

It’s all go this week in the music department! Our usual activities are underway and the camper bands are rehearsing hard for live dance at the end of the session. We also have a few great musical evening programmes lined up for this week and we are especially excited to be introducing a new EP called Camp-a-palooza! This will be a music festival themed evening programme showcasing the talents of the wonderful staff here at MTC! Campers will be able to relax, dance and check out the festival stalls whilst also appreciating the live performances. It’s set to be such a fun night!
Songwriting classes are going really well this session and the recording studio has been constantly occupied!
