Sports and adventures are an integral part of the camp experience. That’s why we selected this feature from the Camp Laurel blog for the guest blog this week.
Our overnight camping program is one of the best parts about going to camp in Maine. Yesterday, four groups of campers headed out for camping excursions to Three Rocks, Bradbury, Mt Blue and Camden Hills State Parks. They had a great time hiking, camping out, telling stories and preparing their own food over an open fire.
On the courts and ballfields, more than 100 campers have already participated in Intercamps and Tournaments in Baseball, Basketball, Tennis, Soccer, and Softball at Laurel and also visiting our neighbors in the Central Maine Camps League. Morning Marathon continues to be a great source of exercise, fun and a great place for those who arise before the rest of camp. Watching campers – young and old – jog around our sports fields before breakfast is always a highlight. On the more creative side of camp, the dishes that have been created in ChefCamp…the music that’s being recorded and produced in Rockport…the drawings that are being sketched and painted in Studio Art….the designs that are being molded in Metalsmithing… and the clay that’s being thrown, heated and glazed Ceramics have all been amazing.
Tomorrow is our first Out Of Camp S Day. We take a break from our daily schedule and groups will head to Funtown USA; Aquaboggan; Boothbay Harbor; and the Old Port of Portland for a day of fun and sightseeing along the beautiful Maine coast.
