As a long time Chop Point friend, Norm Friberg, used to say, “It is a BEAUTIFUL day on the Kennebec!” And it certainly is. First Session is in full swing as we are settling into our daily activities for the next three weeks. The First Session campers arrived this past Friday, and after moving into cabins, signing up for activities and trips, and playing a plethora of get-to-know-you games, it was finally time to settle into camp routine.
As activities are continually running at camp, the trips have also started leaving. Yesterday, a group went to Boothbay Harbor to go on a scenic, whale-watching boat tour . The campers came back last evening with enthusiastic reports of the four whales they spotted. Much to the campers excitement, they didn’t just see any old whales, they saw Fin Whales, the largest type of whale found in Maine! This morning, two more trips left from camp. One group is heading to Northern Maine to canoe the Allagash River. The Allagash is recognized as one of the most beautiful, remote canoeing destinations in the country. The other trip is also driving North, to Carrabassett Valley for a three day mountain biking trip. Whether at camp enjoying the Kennebec, or out on a trip, it’s a great day to be a camper!
