So Many Activities, So Much FunAt Alsing, campers are encouraged to explore their boundaries. Our program is “challenge by choice,” meaning that while all campers follow a group plan, our Coaches help campers try new activities in a way that helps the camper feel comfortable and confident. With reduced anxiety, most of our campers are able to try things they never expected.
Our activities are a combination of traditional camp activities, listed below, as well as specialty days, field trips, and evening activities.
Activities offered include:Archery, arts & crafts, theater, woodworking, athletics (GaGa ball, basketball, soccer, capture the flag, ultimate frisbee), indoor rock climbing, fishing, swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and hiking.
Evening activities include campfires, movie night, counselor hunt (a camper fav!), dances, and the closing talent show where campers show off their skills or simply laugh and clap as a member of the audience – either way, they have a blast and feel an incredible sense of accomplishment as our session is completed.
Specialty Days and Field TripsSpecialty days include theme days such as Marvel Day, Carnival, Olympics, or Star Wars Day, which will be different each session. Campers will also go on one field trip per session for a taste of all that Maine has to offer from the rocky coast to inland mountains, with fun stops in between that might include mini golf, some ice cream or other summer fun.
For our campers who stay for a full 4-week session, we provide a 2-night intersession trip to the beautiful Moosehead Lake region of Maine with yurt living, whitewater rafting, mountain hikes and incredible views.
