Getting Here and Getting Around

Staff members can get to camp just about anyway possible!  Driving and flying tend to be the most popular though.  If you fly, you should plan on flying into Portland airport in Maine or Logan Airport in Boston, and we will pick you up in Portland.  If you drive, there is plenty of parking.

For Fun

Staff are more than welcome to take advantage of all of our activities!  We also have a gym for working out and staff also like to run in their spare time during the day.  We have a plethora of special activities from the counselor hunt to parties and more.

 On nights out and days off, if staff decide to go out of camp they tend to go:
  • into Augusta (movies, nightlife, etc)
  • whitewater rafting
  • to Portland, Freeport or Boston for the night and day off
  • exploring Maine (mountains, beaches)
  • wherever they want (within reason)!
