Thanksgiving is a time for connections – it is to celebrate and give thanks for our relationships, to take comfort in old traditions and joy in forging new ones, and of course, to enjoy the incredible food. In fact, many of the aspects we love about Thanksgiving are also the very same elements that make camp in Maine so special and cherished. And the emphasis that Thanksgiving places on gratitude – which goes hand in hand with giving back – is particularly important to the Maine Camp community.
Many MCE campers’ first encounters with social responsibility and volunteering comes through camp. MCE camps are involved in initiatives both during the summer and the off-season to help those in need, and Maine Camp Experience takes pride in our commitment to service and volunteerism. While this is a value we hold throughout the year, it is something that we place particular value on during the Thanksgiving season.
Wishing everyone a wonderful November and a Happy Thanksgiving to come – and we hope everyone will embrace the holiday spirit and join MCE and MCE families around the world by contributing and giving back to those in need.
