Summer Camp Afternoon Program Note: We have increased interest in an afternoon program for the two weeks of summer camp, July 18 through 29th. We will be designing a relaxed afternoon with lunch, restful activities, art projects, and games. The cost for extending the program to 3:00 will be an additional $50. Campers will need to bring a bag lunch.
As we are shaping this afternoon program and the staffing around the age groups, we encourage interested families to contact Kathy Watko, firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as possible.
Campers explore “Gnomeville” and the surrounding meadows and woodlands of Merriconeag’s beautiful 75 acre Desert Road Campus in Freeport, Maine. They will learn about the animals and insects in the area through stories, song, painting and crafts.
