Ahka Locka Ching! NSSRA once again will fly to Camp Wigwam on Bear Lake in Waterford, Maine this summer. This camp offers exciting opportunities including swimming, tubing, fishing, riding the speed boat on the beautiful Bear Lake and hiking up Hawk Mountain. We’ll challenge ourselves on the climbing wall and in archery, and spend time together singing around the campfire and making s’mores! We will also venture outside of Camp Wigwam to watch a baseball game in Portland, Maine, go blueberry picking and hang out at the beach! The camp is accredited by the American Camping Association, and NSSRA has been taking groups to Maine for over forty years. Camp Wigwam is an unforgettable experience and a great opportunity to go on an adventure, making new friends and new memories!
New participants must attend an NSSRA overnight trip prior to the registration deadline for Camp Wigwam so NSSRA staff can assess the individual’s readiness for this trip. There will also be a mandatory meeting for new participants a week before camp. Please note that participants will be in single beds and sharing cabins with peers. To make arrangements for a single cabin, please contact Katie James before the registration deadline.
A trip waiver and information packet will be emailed or mailed after the registration deadline and must be returned no later than Monday, July 29. Participants must be able to independently perform daily living skills, follow scheduled activities and function at a 1:4 staff to participant ratio. This trip is not recommended for anyone who tires easily when walking. Fee includes transportation, meals, accommodations, and a wide variety of activities.
