For 76 summers, Pine Tree Camp has been the place Maine people with disabilities return to experience a barrier-free summer camp filled with traditional Maine outdoor activities.
For the first time ever, this winter people can experience Pine Tree Camp like they’ve never seen it before: under a blanket of snow!
Pine Tree Camp Adventure Day Pass provides a safe, physically distanced and accessible way for Maine people with disabilities and their families to get outdoors and experience the restorative benefits of nature. Activities are supported by experienced staff following covid-19 protocols to keep our guests safe.
“We will offer snowshoeing, ice fishing, nature exploration and, of course, s’mores by the fire,” said camp
director Dawn Willard-Robinson. “We can’t wait to welcome our community to see North Pond in the winter.”
The Harold and Bibby Alfond Dining Hall will be open as a warming hut complete with safe, physically distanced tables where families can picnic and take part in craft breaks at separate, assigned tables; providing
the chance to stretch their imaginations in addition to exercising outside.
Pine Tree Camp Adventure Day Pass activities include:
- Ice Fishing
- Outdoor fire stations with s’mores
- Indoor crafts
- Warming hut
“Accessible access to the outdoors has never been more important and Pine Tree Camp is committed to filling that need,” Dawn continued. “Keeping people connected is the very essence of what we do, and, during this time of physical distancing, that’s more important than ever.”
Pre-registration is required and space is limited. Register for Pine Tree Camp Adventure Day Pass at this link: Pine Tree Camp Adventure Day Pass Registration.
