Happy Summer!

Black Fly season is coming to an end and summer is upon us as of today. There is a lot going on up here in the coming months, with the Stratton Family Festival in June and Kingfield Days in July. The kids here at Western Maine Center for Children have been enjoying the playground more and more each day with all the great weather we’ve been having and since our tadpoles grew into little frogs, we took a field trip to release them back into the wild. The plants in our garden are growing and life is good here at WMCFC!

For the older set, Outdoor Adventure Camp in Carrabassett Valley will be starting the week of July 9th. This camp is geared for kids aged 4-13 years and runs weekly through August 17th. The camp offers overnight trips for ages 8 and up as well as great hikes, and age appropriate activities for all the kids including swim, tennis, golf and others. For more information contact Marcia White at 207-237-6909 or email mwhite@sugarloaf.com. It’s a perfect reason to come on up and spend some time at your “winter” place for a week and enjoy the beauty of Carrabassett Valley in the summer time.

If you have younger children that are not quite old enough for Outdoor Adventure Camp, feel free to give WMCFC a call for child care services. We are open M-Th and would be happy to see some new faces.
