Outdoor Adventure Camp
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, opening Outdoor Adventure Camp is undetermined at this time. A decision will be made once we receive additional guidance from the Maine and Federal CDC. Please check back for updates and thank you for your patience.
Ages 4-13 years
July 6 -August 14, 2020: Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM-3:30 PM
Camp activities may include: swimming, fly fishing, tennis, golf, wall climbing, canoeing, cooperative and competitive field and ball games; arts and crafts; hiking and mountain biking; dramatics; “top secret” rain day plans; weekly themes covering environmental awareness, ecology, local heritage, nature, and weather. We hope to familiarize the children with all that makes our corner of the world so special, share lots of fun and laughter, build their self-confidence, and empower them to better “Live in the outside”. This camp made available through the Town of Carrabassett Valley’s Recreation Department and the generosity of Carrabassett Valley taxpayers.
Area Guests: $235 per week, $135 for 3 days, $50 per day
Year-Round residents (campers enrolled in local school systems): $100 per week, $80 for 3 days, or $30 per day.
Carrabassett Valley Taxpayers: $145 per week, $110 for 3 days, or $40 per day
(Local resident, and taxpayer camper-ships are generously subsidized by the CV taxpayers)
Weekly Overnight Trips
Weekly overnight trips will be available for ages 8 and up as part of a full week enrollment. The cost is $45-$60 per child, which includes supervision, fees, and three meals. Space is limited for some trips.
Sugarloaf is surrounded by several 4000-foot peaks. Campers 8 years old and up have the option to take on the challenge to climb a different peak each week. In recognition of this accomplishment, campers are given a descriptive tag identifying the peak that they climbed, and a special "peak bag" to keep them in. Naturally, the campers who "bag all the peaks" feel a tremendous amount of pride in their accomplishment!
Camper Daily Needs
Bathing suit, towel, hat, appropriate clothing for the weather and planned activities, sneakers or closed toe shoes, lunch, snacks, and plenty of fluids (no glass containers). Labeling of your child’s belongings is appreciated. Please apply sunscreen and bug repellent to your child at the beginning of each camp day, and communicate any special instructions to your child’s counselors.
