hundred years. Its iconic landscapes have inspired presidents, poets, philosophers, novelists and environmentalists. What better place to bring your kids to inspire them to love the out of doors?  With warm weather on the horizon, thoughts turn toward planning summer vacations, and for the luckiest of kids, the end of the school year means attending a summer camp in Maine that fills their days with outdoor adventure and comraderie.

Many of our summer guests are enrolling their kids in two great programs right here in Freeport.  LLBean has the best  Outdoor Discovery Schools  on this planet, and some great summer kids  day camps   as well. Wolfe's Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment has a wonderful series of day camps for kids ranging in age from four to fifteen years.  Check out their summer camp programs and consider enrolling your kids for several days or a week while you spend your days a few short miles away, relaxing at the inn or going to one of L.L.Bean's Outdoor Discovery Schools. There's an outdoor adventure just waiting for you and your kids to enjoy.  This is a great way to learn new skills, start new family traditions and make great memories that will last a lifetime.
