Kids Do Their Own Exploring at Outdoor Adventure Camp

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine - Hike up a different mountain each week, learn to cast a fly rod, or mountain bike along a wilderness path. These are just a few of the challenges that kids can explore at Sugarloaf’s annual Outdoor Adventure Camp. Established more than 15 years ago, Outdoor Adventure Camp is offered through the cooperative efforts of Sugarloaf and the Town of Carrabassett Valley Recreation Committee.   

There’s Something For Everyone

Outdoor Adventure Camp is about having fun, making friends, and trying new things.  Campers will have the opportunity to take golf lessons at the prestigious Sugarloaf Golf Club, enjoy a game of soccer, learn how to cast during fly fishing instruction, improve their swimming abilities through daily instruction, or showcase their singing abilities at a talent show. Weekly trips will be made to the Antigravity Complex where kids can use the skate-park and bowl, rock climbing wall, and trampolines. Every day is different and campers will enjoy the variety of activities all summer long.  

Field Trips

Each week there is a different field trip to many of Maine’s most unique summertime locations.  The field trips are offered to kids ages 6-13.  Campers ages 4-5 may accompany the older group on some trips, or have field trip destinations of their own. 

Peak Baggers

Sugarloaf is surrounded by several 4000-foot peaks, and campers will enjoy the challenge of climbing a different one each week.  Campers are given a descriptive tag identifying each peak that they have climbed, and campers who “bag all the peaks” receive special recognition at the end of the season.   

Weekly Overnight Trips

This optional adventure is offered at an additional cost.  Campers will spend the night at a special overnight destination with appropriate supervision provided.  Meals are included in the cost as well.  Games and stories are part of this fun camping tradition. 

Outdoor Adventure Camp is offered to kids ages 4-13.  Campers can participate for single days, or by the week.  Reservations are required to ensure appropriate staffing levels.  Same-day enrollment will depend on space availability in each age group.   

This year’s camp runs from July 6 through August 14, 2009, Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  The Camp Base is at Riverside Town Park in Carrabassett Valley.
