When the snow is flying, all I want to do is think about warm weather and camp season! The camp guide for summer 2015 is at the printer and soon to be in your mailboxes. I was able to wrangle a sneak peek at the guide, to share a few snapshots with you. Camp Seawood has some great new general camp programs for this coming summer. Each week, the general camp programs have a specific theme, from art to nature and teambuilding adventures! Check out the sneak peek below.
Today is National S’mores Day, which in other words is a Girl Scout camp holiday. Our camp experiences would not be complete without roasting marshmallows over the campfire for s’mores! Back in February, we posted some recipes for s’mores. In honor of National S’mores Day, I wanted to give you a quick “how to” on creating those roasting sticks our girls all know and love making at camp! Post your creative s’mores recipes below!
- Wire Coat hangers
- Wire cutters
- paint stirring sticks/wooden dowels
- duct tape (in fun colors, of course)
- marshmallows and a campfire
Dear camp families,
Families have reported finding ticks on their children at the end of the camp day. With campers active outside all day at camp, ticks are a very real possibility and danger. We recommend an insect repellent containing between 20-30% DEET. Repellent should be non-aerosol and campers should be shown how to use it. According to the Vermont Department of Health, ticks are found near grassy or wooded areas. This means pretty much all of our camp property!
It is also recommended that you check your children for ticks on a regular basis. For more information please visit:
Here’s to a safe and healthy summer,
Abenaki Mascoma Camp Director
We are so excited for camp to start tomorrow. We welcomed campers for a pre-orientation this afternoon to tour camp, meet the staff and more!
