GEARING UP FOR SUMMER!
By Beverly Stone - Director
Camp Forest is waking up! Summer is near. Though snow is still covering the campsite. The deer and squirrel are finding the remaining acorns as the snow slowly disappears, Camp is waking up from its long winter hibernation. Two week long expeditions are planned to provide opportunities for children from around the world to come and spend a week in the Maine woods.July 18 - 22 is Beaver Expedition and August 21 - 27 is the North Woods Expedition.
Seven weeks of Day Camp begin on June 27.
View the Camp Website, register for Camp, spread the word, donate so low income children can receive campership assistance to attend Camp Forest 2011.
Camp Forest is quiet this time of year. Everything is covered in snow. Deer browse through the campsite for the children’s piles of acorns, or remaining tasty tidbits of debris shelters.
But behind the scenes, activity continues to inform the public of the 2011 schedule found at the website at www.campforestmaina.com and fundraising continues to build the campership fund for disadvantaged children for Summer 2011. Thank you for being part of bringing this special wilderness experience to children.
