Tripp Lake Trip Day

We feel so lucky that Tripp Lake Camp is located in the great State of Maine. Not only is it beautiful and picturesque, but it also provides an array of opportunities for our campers to experience new adventures outside of our camp bubble. Each week, different age groups will venture off-site with our counselors and trip leaders to different destinations around Maine. Today was the first of these fun and exciting trip days! 

Tripp Lake TripsOur JR I group headed to the Maine Wildlife Park where they visited different locations around the park before continuing on to Bradbury Mountain for a picnic lunch and short hike. The JR II group headed to the lovely Pineland Farms for some strawberry picking and salsa making! After lunch, they too went on a short hike while exploring and playing games with their age group. The Inter III group spent their day on a stunning hike at Roberts Farm Preserve. Now onto the Seniors! The SR I group went to Sebago Lake for a day of fun in the sun. They had the option of kayaking, canoeing or SUP’ing around the spectacular Sebago lake. After eating lunch on an island, they spent the afternoon at Nason’s beach playing games, swimming and relaxing. Sounds like an ideal way to spend a Thursday! The Portland Team Managers Shopping Trip was back in action for our oldest campers, followed by an afternoon at the Maine Escape Room where they worked on their problem solving and team building skills! The Team Captains joined our JR IIs for Strawberry picking as well. None of these trips would be complete without a quick stop at the local Dairy Bar for a sweet treat on the way back to camp!

Tripp Lake Trips

While these groups were out having a blast on their trips, the rest of camp was busy having fun at their activity areas. When not at swim, tennis or another active area on camp, the AJs were getting familiarized with their age group show: Alice in Wonderland. The Subs had a big choice day as each hour provided a number of different activities they could participate in across all areas of camp. The Inter IIs were busy at outdoor living and canoeing as it’s important they practice their camping and paddle skills in the days leading up to their overnight trip! You could find the Inter I group all over camp as well, from waterski to silver jewelry making, there was a little bit of everything for everybody.

All the age groups were back on camp by dinner time for a pizza cookout! There were a number of different activities going on all over camp as well. For any campers not rehearsing for OG-NOG (the camper talent show), we had the following available: JRs – scavenger hunt, AJs – volleyball and badminton, Subs and Inter IIIs – spa night, and Inter IIs – choice of various activity areas. No one can say these girls don’t stay busy all day long at Tripp Lake Camp!

Kind Regards,
