The Top 10 Things That Set Arcadia Apart: #2 Arcadia's Activity Program

Greetings from the shores of Pleasant Lake,

The 2024 season will be the 108th summer our Camp family has gathered together for an unparalleled experience for girls aged 7-17. Click here for more information and here to register.

At the cornerstone of our activity program is the fundamental belief that all of our campers will be comfortable on the land, in the water and on the water. To this end, we require each camper to attend Campcraft, Canoeing and Swimming until they achieve second level (of four possible).

In Campcraft girls learn outdoor living skills such as making a fire, putting up tents, knife skills, cooking over a fire and axemanship. Our older campers even chop down trees and can become Junior Maine Guides.

Arcadians hone their canoeing skills first learning how to turn the canoe with a draw and a push away. More advanced campers learn how to run rapids! We also canoe to town weekly for ice cream.

Girls at Arcadia learn to swim in our gorgeous lake and can also participate on the swim team which travels to other camps for swim meets. We also love free swim which happens twice daily.

We believe these skills are important as they allow us to appreciate the beauty of our natural surroundings. In addition, these three activities prepare us for Arcadia’s robust trips program which brings us to the lakes, rivers and mountains of Maine and New Hampshire. Available to all ages, our trips program is another reason Arcadia sets itself apart from other camps! You will read more about our fabulous trips program in our next post.

Interested in learning more? Let’s connect! Would you like to set up a time to have a virtual tour over Zoom, talk on the phone, or text about the Arcadian experience? Do not hesitate to reach me on my cell at 508-981-1574 to set up a time. I can also visit you in your home if you would prefer to meet in person and are within driving distance of Boston.

Warm Regards,
