Summer 2016 Camp Highlights

We closed another amazing summer with a record number of Junior Kieve and Junior Wavus Campers. We also had a record number of campers on long trips in Maine's remote areas (Allagash, Long Voyage, and Maine Trails), Kieve with 160 boys and Wavus with 132 girls. The average number of years for campers is now 7 with kids staying longer for the wilderness tripping experience. Best of all the weather was fantastic!
