Box Lunch Day

We encourage campers to get out of camp on Wednesday and explore the Maine coast. There is too much to see and do locally to miss out on what Maine has to offer.

Popular destinations are:
One of Maine's most beautiful port towns offers hiking up Mt. Battie in the Camden Hills State Park, exploring The Nature Conservancy Preserve next to Lake Megunticook, visiting the many shops and docks, and taking a day sail out to the islands.

Belfast harbor, shops & co-op

We are so close to so many places in Maine that a day of exploration is a must! Wednesday is officially "Box Lunch Day." Lunches are provided and most campers return for dinner and just in time for evening activity.

Staff will be happy to assist you in making your day plans. Families are welcome to stay at camp on "Box Lunch Day" and enjoy the facilities. Please be aware that there is no scheduled programing from after breakfast until dinner.

"My son and I came hoping for the best but not knowing what to expect. Medomak, the staff, and the Stones far exceeded our expectations. We had the most fabulous time. My son tried so many new things, was brave and adventurous - it was wonderful to see. This place is magical."
