Because we live and play on the ocean, our daily rhythm often changes with the tides! Most mornings are spent in focus groups exploring a week-long topic with the same peer group. Campers leave Blueberry Cove with a connection to their focus and new friends! Afternoons offer “choice time” and the opportunity to follow a new interest and mingle with different campers. Activities include boating, hauling lobster traps, swimming, exploring islands, drama, pottery, gardening, picking berries and baking pies, and canoe trips to the marsh. Evenings are enjoyed as a community and include games like capture the flag, cookouts at Drift-In beach, seaside lobster bakes and campfires complete with s’mores. Campers experience the joy of summer by the sea, learn about community sustainability, coastal ecology and the marine environment’s role in maintaining a sustainable planet.
Our mini-camp is a special three-day camp session giving 8–11 year olds who might not feel ready for a full week away at camp the chance to enjoy the experiences and joys of our residential camp. This unique program features nature exploration, group games, swimming, crafts, exciting evening programs (including a campfire), sleeping in a cabin, making friends and lots of fun!
This program is for the camper who feels one week of camp is just not enough OR for the camper would love to learn to sail. This session is open to any camper, it is also a session that offers a sailing focus! If you want a longer camp experience or want to learn to sail…this is the session for you!
