Program of the Week – Blueberry Cove Residential Camp

Blueberry Cove Residential Camp

girl with lobster dinnerA fun-filled summertime of learning and play…two beaches and salt marshes to explore…rolling blueberry fields and flower filled meadows to frolic in…mud flats to learn and play on…a majestic spruce forest with secret rooms to find…islands to discover…cabins nestled in a mossy, seaside forest for dreamy slumber…misty, magical mornings, exciting, fun filled days, and firefly nights…

Our fleet of rowboats, kayaks, canoes and sailboats, offers campers and staff the chance to experience the joy of “simply messing about in boats.” Baby farm animals and a half-acre, organic vegetable garden give children the opportunity to watch life grow and change right before their eyes.
