Camp Merritt

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

Camp Schedule – Tuesday & Thursday

Our camp season begins the week of June 28th and runs through August 26th. Camp Merritt will be available on Tuesday & Thursday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. A fee of $30 per child covers the cost of lunch and snacks. The recommended age for camp participants is children 5-12 years old.

Sebasco Waterfront Pool

A newly renovated pool joined the ranks in 2022, and we couldn’t be more pleased! Now we have more deck space for everyone to enjoy the waterfront, take in the sun, and splash around. Come dive in!

Please note that our pool is now closed for the season and will reopen in 2023.

Harbor & Moorings

Sebasco’s Dock House is a busy hub of activity during the summer. You can spend a whole morning or afternoon there and we encourage it! There’s something about the salt air, the birds overhead and the boats in the harbor on Casco Bay that make you feel a world away from everything.

Our own tour boat, Random Island, is the center of much of that activity.  We offer a number of trips during the summer months, including scenic harbor and nature cruises, pirate cruises, and lunch cruises.

Our expansive mooring field gives boaters an opportunity to cruise in for the day or to stay overnight. Reservations are required and can be made by filling out the Dockwa form below.

We offer Seasonal Moorings as well! Contact srphme@girihotels.com for more information.

Quarterdeck Recreation Center

The Quarterdeck has been a Sebasco tradition for generations. Just stepping through the door takes you back to a time when life was simple. This is a place to reconnect with family and friends at the end of a busy day at Sebasco.

Bowl a couple of strings on one of our vintage candlepin lanes. We even have bowling shoes (optional, of course). Have a family ping pong tournament. Cue up some oldies on the juke box and play pin ball. Pool, air hockey, foosball and basketball; there’s something for everyone.

We guarantee that this will be a memorable experience!

Fitness Center

Even with all of our outdoor activities you may still want to keep on your exercise schedule while visiting Sebasco. Our Fitness Center (located adjacent to the Pro Shop) has everything you need. Treadmills, elipticals, upright bike, weight training, and men’s and women’s locker rooms.

The Fitness Center is also home to our Kayaking Center.

Meet Captain Phil Luedee

Captain Phil Luedee

Captain Phil came to Sebasco as a child where he learned to sail and operate boats from the ‘big kids’. He has a degree in marine science and a lifelong love of the ocean which he amply shares during his boat tours. From oceanographic vessels, sailboats, and tugboats he has collected a host of ocean-going experiences that he loves to share. Phil was the longest running captain of our beloved Ruth with 26 years at her helm. When Ruth was retired in 2019 he led the search for Sebasco that found Random Island, a Maine built hull, and returned her home to build a new legacy at Sebasco. Phil lives right here in Phippsburg with his wife Linda and has three grown children and two grandchildren.
