August 14 - 18 - Explorers Unite Summer Camp, ages 8 - 11
Summer Environmental Camp with the Trust! Ages 8 - 11, Monday through Friday from 9am-3pm. $250 per child, limited enrollment. Campers will split their time between Kennebunkport Conservation Trust properties and Cocoons Day School.
Get ready for high adventure! Campers will spend Monday and Friday at Cocoons Day School where they will learn about different explorers and their journeys, as well as take some big journeys of their own to explore their our community. Learn how boats are built and about the first boats that came from the Kennebunk River and sailed around the world. Learn how to navigate around the woods using the tools to be an adventurer. Tuesday through Thursday will be held at the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust Headquarters. We will supply plenty of opportunities to explore new territory on a mountain bike trek, hike trails to tasty destinations, and even adventure out to an island to see how the first explorers in Cape Porpoise came here. You might even find some artifacts alongside the archeology dig out on Stage Island!
