It wasn’t long ago that family reunions were considered the norm rather than the exception, but times have certainly changed. Advancements in technology have made it easier to keep in touch with loved ones, but there are moments when it seems the quality of these interactions has suffered as a consequence. No one can deny the many conveniences of e-mail, cell phones and web-cams when it comes to connecting with extended family. However, the profoundly human element is lost in an overreliance on them
In today’s fast-paced society the need for human connection, especially family connection, is more important than ever before. Our families share the foundations of our lives and the moments that shaped us. Preserving memories roots us to our past, and a great way to relive memories of yesteryear while creating new memories is to make family reunions a priority. Family reunions provide the opportunity to strengthen old family bridges and build new ones.
Great family reunion locations offer modern amenities
Family reunion locations such as Sebasco Harbor Resort provide the ideal backdrop for your gathering. At Sebasco, the serenity of the pristine Maine landscape combined with an abundance of nostalgia-evoking family activities provide a welcome escape from the outside world and the space to reconnect with loved ones. Our modern accommodations and amenities provide every comfort and luxury you could possibly want during your stay. The unique ability to intertwine historical charm with exceptional contemporary convenience is one of the biggest reasons why Sebasco Harbor Resort has been nationally recognized by the New York Times, Boston Sunday Globe, Parents Magazine and Coastal Living.

The resort’s Camp Merritt program is great for children ages 5-10. What better way is there for cousins to get to know one another than by sharing exciting daily adventures without the adults around? Activities include blueberry picking, pirate adventures, Maine lobstering demonstrations, field trips, hiking, softball, golf, tennis and scavenger hunts in which the whole family can partake. The camp hours run Monday-Friday from 10:00am-3:00pm, so adults have mornings and afternoons free to re-connect with one another and take advantage of the resort’s many amenities and activities. Whether you prefer to spend the day golfing, kayaking through Casco Bay, getting a luxurious treatment at the Fairwinds Spa or swimming in the saltwater pool, everyone can find plenty to enjoy here. Follow your passion and reconvene over ice-cold beers and a delicious lunch at The Ledges restaurant. In the evenings, the whole family can tell stories and share laughs about their days over a crackling bonfire—complete with S’mores and sing-a-longs. Sebasco Harbor Resort is the ultimate in family reunion resorts. Not only will you leave with plenty of great stories to retell at the next reunion, you will also gain cherished memories to last a lifetime.
