Each week at Family Nature Camp will have it's own unique feel, but for those wanting a "sneak peek," here is an idea of what you can expect:
Monday and/or Tuesday:
Thursday and/or Friday:
Also available are optional sea kayak tours with Ardea Expeditions around which we would book all your other field trips. Meals are served in our award winning dining hall starting with Sunday night dinner and ending with Friday night dinner. If you and your family plan a day-long outing, the dining hall will make sure you have a delicious bag lunch to take with you.
Off-hours can be spent socializing with other families or visiting Bar Harbor or other areas of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. You can either drive or use the Island Explorer, which is a free bus service that picks up and drops off passengers at the COA campus every 15 minutes daily.
New activities include a sail on a four-masted schooner, a narrated nature cruise to the offshore fishing village of Frenchboro, and new and different self-guided hikes, walks, tours and activities suggested by program coordinators.
