Summer is a time for kids to forge new friendships and it’s also a time to strengthen family ties. We think our unique Camp Merritt program fosters both types of relationships and we encourage all guests to be “campers”! In addition to our Maine day camp activities there are many wonderful daily events that are designed to keep families playing together and having fun. Each week’s schedule is posted for you to peruse when you check in. We encourage you to take a few moments to meet with the Concierge at the Front Office and go over all of the options for the coming days.
Camp Merritt – Camp Activities
For many of our young guests, their Camp Merritt experiences are what they remember long after vacation is over. Games, meeting people from different place and learning about the animals that live in the land, air and sea of Midcoast Maine are just some of what Camp Merritt offers.
Activities change weekly and are often adapted to suit the weather conditions and other events going on at the resort. There are plenty of group activities and free time at the pool and playground each camp day.
Camp Merritt activities may include:
- Hiking up Merritt Mountain
- Golf & Tennis clinics with a Pro
- Live Maine animal demonstrations
- Scavenger hunts for the whole family
- Exploring the area with our Naturalist
- Softball with the Lighthouse Keeper
