The letter I received from my daughter this summer telling me she had become a vegetarian. She spent so much time at "animal care" at camp with a calf and goats that she came upon this decision herself and has stuck to it ever since.

This was Jackson's first time away from home...EVER! And I can not express enough what I wonderful experience it was, for him and for me. I'm not sure who was more nervous, me or hime, but when we arrived on the first day, the counselors made us feel so taken care of, it made the transition much easier. Of course I still cried like a baby, but at least Jackson took it like a champ. You might of thought I'd won the lottery when I got my first letter! Oh the joy! It was a very brief note that I took a picture of an shared all over Facebook and with anyone who would listen! It simply said, "Mom, just wanted to say I love you and I'm more home sick than I thought. I am also having a awesome time. Love Jackson" I carried that note with me for the rest of the month. Mid-way through the month his camp counselor sent a post card letting us know Jackson was doing very well, winning awards, loving rock climbing & kayaking and that "everyone knows & likes Jackson, literally". Jackson's second and third letters also expressed some home sickness but I couldn't help but notice that almost every picture of him on FB was with some lovely young lady with a huge grin on his face, somehow I don't think he was feeling all that bad! Jackson came home a very different young man, which I think was my favorite part of camp...A few days after coming home, out of the blue one evening, he asked me if he could help me with the dishes!?!? I nearly fell over, it literally took me a minute to figure out how to answer. He emptied the dishwasher and loaded it up! UNBELIEVABLE! Thank you Camp Nashoba North for taking such great care of my little buy and growing him up into a fine young man.

My daughter loved the climbing wall at Camp Nashoba North last summer. She was obsessed with getting to the top of the hardest wall.The smiles and sense of accomplishment lept through the page on the letter she sent when she told us that she had finally made it to the TOP!

One of the biggest lessons that I try to instill in my daughter is to cherish the gift of life! Cherish it by not taking it for granted, by conquering your fears, by celebrating and having reverence for all living things, and by embracing new experiences. All with the ultimate goal of living life to the fullest. When deciding to send her to camp, I did not know that she would be encountering all of these in one summer! Let alone, in one place! Firstly, she noticed how hard we worked to make sending her to camp financially viable. As a result, she showed appreciation & made sure not to take it for granted. Secondly, she conquered her fear of swimming! She passed the final swim test which involved swimming from shore to buoy & back! No small feat for a once non-swimmer. Next, she celebrated various forms of life by taking a course in caring for farm animals. This tactile adventure helped to solidify her veterinary career goals. As for the human life form, she befriended & learned from other campers from all walks of life, countries & cultures. The bonds & connections forged with the other campers showed her that we are more alike than we are different. This alleviated her angst of meeting new people. And lastly, she blissfully embraced the new experience of learning to ride a horse! Aside from her exhilaration, she garnered more confidence with this newly acquired skill. All this within the wondrous realms of nature! The kind of individual that the camp experience fosters is truly priceless. The positive effects of camp are noticeable long after summer is over. This is precisely why I send her. Of course, for her it's just plain ole fun. But for me, it's an invaluable encounter that will help her happily & formidably navigate through life and, basically, last a lifetime!

I spent almost every summer at a camp in Maine from the time I was 12 until I graduated from High School. My first summer I met a girl Named Sheryl from South Africa. She told me all about Apartheid - I had vaguely heard about it probably from the news or parents talking but to learns about something like that first hand was incredible - my whole world opened up and I became more aware of the fact that there really was an entire world of different places and cultures that existed. I grew up more in that first summer than I can ever put into words. Living and playing with people closely, some from the US and some not, was an experience I am so grateful for!
“I greatly enjoyed speaking with Laurie (Guide at Maine Camp Experience). Thanks to her guidance, ideas and suggestions we truly feel that our ultimate choice is the right one for us. We can trust that our seven year old daughter will have a wonderful summer!”
