FARM GROWN (Week 2- 6/27)
Discover your green thumb! Farmers will plant in the garden and harvest the rewards! We’ll learn about food, flowers, soil, and sun. And visit some furry farm animals, too! Put on your overalls and meet us in the dirt!
CAMPING ADVENTURE (Week 3- 7/5)
Do you know how to build a fire, pitch a tent, roast your dinner over the fire, or tell a very scary ghost story? The YWCA’s Camping Adventure will return to nature for a classic summer camp in the woods experience!
CAMP VACATIONLAND (Week 4- 7/11)
Mountains, beaches, and woods-the way life should be! Join the YWCA as we discover all that our pine tree state has to offer. Field trips in nature, local food, culture, and fun. Sure to be the Maine event of your summer!
MUSIC MANIA (Week 5- 7/18)
Are you a rock star, a crooning country songbird, a classical virtuoso-or do you just like to sing along with the radio? The YWCA will be alive with the sound of music this week! Learn about making music and the different genres, make your own instruments, star in a music video, and have wild dance parties! This week will include a special performance from a guest musician!
(She blinded me with) SCIENCE! (Week 6- 7/25)
Satisfy your curiosity with this week of wild experiments, wonder, and play! Design, engineer, create & learn! Maybe you’ll invent the next big thing or make a monster-sized mess. Scientists of all interests welcome!
SUMMER OLYMPICS 2016 (Week 7- 8/1)
What do every country in the world, swimming, track, gymnastics, soccer, basketball, and volley ball have in common?! The Summer Olympics, of course! Try new sports, learn about the traditions of the Olympics, join the opening ceremonies parade, and take home the gold!
UNDERSEA ADVENTURE (Week-8-8/8)
Do you dive deep, swim far, and splash until the sun goes down? Undersea Adventure will take our wet and wild campers to oceans, lakes, and waterparks to enjoy all of the aquatic escapades that our state has to offer!
