Kids in EdGE summer camps create art, explore science, learn skills, get their energy out playing games, make friends, and have fun. Registration is now open for students in kindergarten through eighth grade in Washington county for five, week-long camps running from Monday, June 26 until Friday, July 28.
This year’s three summer camp locations are:
- D.W. Merritt Elementary for students who live in Addison, Beals, Columbia, Columbia Falls, Harrington, and Jonesport,
- Milbridge Elementary for students who live in Beddington, Cherryfield, Deblois, and Milbridge, and
- Rose M. Gaffney Elementary for students who attend Rose M. Gaffney.
Parents can sign up their child week-by-week and register for as many weeks as they wish. At camp, kids will rotate through a variety of activities during the day. “We’ll have regular EdGE activities to choose from,” says Isaac Marnik, the Mission’s EdGE Primary Program Director. “Over the summer, campers will also go on field trips and have multiple opportunities to visit the ropes course on the Mission’s Downeast campus in Cherryfield.”
Camps are $30.00 per student per week and scholarships are available. The camps are open to any student who was in kindergarten through eighth grade during the 2022-2023 school year who live in these towns. Students do not need to be enrolled in EdGE programming during the school year to attend. Breakfast and lunch are provided for all campers. Bus transportation is not available this summer.
