What is Camp Connor?
Camp Connor is a day camp with approximately 12 acres of land, including a beach front, large field, wooded area, picnic area, playground, peninsula, and buildings. We also have access to our neighbors basketball court and beachfront for launching our kayaks and canoes. Camp Connor is located off of route 26, address: 70 Connor Lane. (Connor Lane is a dirt road, that provides access to Camp Tall Pines and Poland Spring Campground)
Who do we serve?
Boys and girls going into grades 1-8 in the fall of 2020
Campers can attend one-week, multiple weeks, or the entire summer if you so choose!
The majority of our time will be spent alternating through small and large group activities on-site utilizing our recreational facilities; including outdoor life skills, team building, sports and games, arts and crafts, music, canoeing, kayaking, etc...
All campers will have the opportunity to swim daily; weather permitting. Swim instruction will be offered through our program day-to-day with the waterfront director on-site who has the proper certification, training, and experience.
Our themes for each week may offer different and specialized activities, which may include on-site guests, age appropriate field trips, and special parties on Friday afternoons; all included in the cost of camp. All campers will have the opportunity to develop connections with same-aged peers, older/younger campers, and our super awesome staff. We want your child to make memories that will last a lifetime here in their backyard!
We increased our prices for this summer, to prepare for the January 1st minimum wage increase and to hire 4 additional staff. The hiring of more staff will allow us more flexibility in utilizing the water front and providing the necessary staffing to support our anticipated participant numbers. We are proud to say that our rates are still significantly under the average cost of participating in a waterfront camp.
