There will be a few special activities planned for attendees, including a continuation of our celebration of life for Ruth Grauert (Reg) but it will largely be a time to relax, remember, and connect with others who love this special place.

We will be offering use of indivdual cabins ($800 for a single person + $200 for each additional person; 4 people max per cabin). So gather your family and friends or your old camp buddies for a visit to camp. If you are a single person who would like to attend and are willing to be housed with someone else, please contact us and we will help connect you with others for shared housing.

Dates: August 8-14 2021 Arriving for Dinner Sunday, Departure after brunch on Saturday.

Pick up is available for those arriving by bus or plane in Augusta, ME.

Please note in order to ensure the safety of our community and to stop the spread of Covid-19 we require all adults staying overnight at camp to be fully vaccinated unless you have a medical exception
