Summer Camp 2021:  This year we will run camp in two co-vid-smart sessions, basing our 2 different weeks at Kettle Pond in Groton State Park.  There are 5 lean-to’s, so we can have our own spaces, plus plenty of space at the campsite for tents, fire pits, activities.  Activities will include kayaking (each camper with their own boat and paddle and life jacket for the week), hiking, biking (with their own bikes), primitive and survival skills trainings.  We will try out some new techniques for camping skills.  

Session 1: June 28 week for 3 nights M-Th (with Friday optional day camp in S. Strafford)                                  Session 2: July 5 week for 4 nights

Parents drop off and pick up at Kettle Pond.  Details to follow registration.                                                               *************************************************************

Non-covid camp years:  Based in South Strafford, we will go exploring, play team building games, create natural arts, and prepare for an overnight trip. We will learn kayaking skills in preparation for a two-day trip, from Bradford to Orford on flat water on the Connecticut River. We stay at a primitive campsite. Instruction and guiding, kayaking gear and group camping gear is provided, along with individual camping gear as needed. Transportation and carpooling can be arranged from the certain locations to camp in S. Strafford. Please confer with us.                                                *************************************************************
