ACA, New England is excited to head to Maine for this year’s Fall Overnight Camp Tours September 9 & 10!

These tours offer attendees a chance to visit six overnight camps in two days including:

This is a great opportunity to see a variety of camp properties, experience how other organizations run their programs and facilities, re-energize by networking with peers, discuss lessons learned and hot topics from the past summer, and gain new ideas as your off-season planning begins.

The $179/member; $199/non-member registration includes two lunches. Travel, lodging, breakfast, and dinner are not included.

Day One (Monday, September 9): We will kick off at Camp Caribou at 10:30am with a tour followed by lunch, then head over to Hidden Valley Camp, and finish with a tour of Medomak Family Camp & Retreat Center by about 5 pm. Then, join us for a happy hour at The Pub at Baxter in Lewiston, ME to relax at the end of the day (ACANE will provide snacks).

Day Two (Tuesday, September 10): The day will begin at 9am at Camp Kingswood, followed by a tour at Camp Agawam, and lunch & a tour at Kingsley Pines. We will be wrapping up around 3:00 pm on the second day.
