Reservations
Reservations are required as space is limited. Reservations will be taken on a first come first serve
basis, with Carrabassett Valley residents having priority. Once a reservation is made, you will receive
a conformation email with details for the day.

COVID-19 Precautions
By staying outside and staying local we will do our best to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Nothing
is without risk and each camper, family and staff should understand that there is some risk involved in
participation.
Our expectations are:
- Kids and staff will be asked to keep a 6’ physical distance from each other
- When this is not possible, a face covering will need to be worn. All campers and staff are
responsible for providing their own face covering.
- Morning drop off will be staggered; each camper and staff will have their temperature taken, using a
no touch thermometer. A brief wellness check of signs and symptoms will also be done daily.
- If you are not feeling well, please do not come to camp that day!
- We ask everyone involved in Outdoor Adventure Programing this summer to be responsible and to
do their best to stay local, practice social distancing, and to follow camp procedures.

Cancellations
We will not hold programing on adverse weather days, heavy rain or thunderstorms.
If this applies to your camper, you will receive a text message the morning of programing around
8am. All cancellations by OAP will be refunded or credited.


“We accept the challenge to live in the outside, safely, and happily ever after.”

We want to empower campers to better “Live in the outside” and to be avid environmental stewards.
This camp is made available through the Town of Carrabassett Valley’s Recreation Department and
the generosity of Carrabassett Valley Taxpayers.
