Cooking at Camp
In my last posting, I wrote about all the visual arts we offer at Maine Arts Camp. With more than 60 activities, we have many other types of activities as well. We provide high quality instruction in everything we offer, all in a non-competitive environment. And [...]
With camp approaching soon, our campers are busy deciding which activities they’d like to take at camp. Ours is a completely elective schedule, and campers get 10 activities during each 2 week session. All of our 2012 activity choices are listed on the activity signup sheet, but I’ll start [...]
As usual for this time of year, we’ve been busy meeting with families who are interested in sending their children to Maine Arts Camp. Some of these have been brief interactions at camp fairs where we need to get the key messages across quickly, while the more meaningful ones have been [...]
We’ve spent the fall assessing last summer, reviewing evaluations from camper families, revamping our website, designing new marketing materials, and getting in touch with staff and camp families. We value the feedback tremendously, utilizing it to make improvements each summer. The feedback also helps reinforce what makes our camp special for the children [...]

Seeing Billy Elliot on Broadway, brought back many thoughts of watching both boys and girls soar through dance and all the arts at Maine Arts Camp.
I for one was very inspired by Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford commencement address that has been posted all over the Internet this past week upon his passing away. Have you discussed these inspiring words with your child or teen? What a great opportunity for all of us to have this meaningful conversation around our kitchen tables. And, it turns out his words even apply to camp!
We all know that character counts! I was inspired by reading about an effort by some leading educators to develop a character education and measurement system. It was no surprise that the key strengths are all qualities and skills we focus on at camp!
Now that we’re settling in back at home in Florida, we’re looking back on the summer and analyzing what worked best, and what might need improvement. We feel we had one of our best summers ever, and evidently our camper families and staff agree. We’re receiving wonderful feedback, and I wanted to share these with you.
