The Passy or formally, The Passagassawaukeag River. Camp Forest started off its Summer 2012 with a week long expedition down the river to the Belfast Harbor, Maine. The week began with a BANG - literally. No sooner had the canoes hit the water and set off to the first river bend when the sky darkened and the lightning struck within the mile! Rain pelted the evening and the mist covered the morning. The first white water overturned a canoe sending the unattached gear floating down the river. But did all this dampen spirits?? NOPE! An adventure together is always exciting and the rain makes it more so. The wet week ended with a glorious Friday as the group entered Belfast Harbor.
What a wonderful way to start the summer. There are two more expeditions this summer that anyone from anywhere in the world may attend and Day Camp sessions for the local folk. Many families cannot afford a camping experience for their children. Camp Forest continues to raise funds for camperships so any child who wants can attend.
