April is Here

After a relatively uneventful winter, we got hit with a late March snowstorm last week and are expecting another storm this week. Spring in Maine keeps you on your toes! We’re hoping for a clear day to see the upcoming solar eclipse. The last time this occurred in Maine was on July 20, 1963, and former campers remember watching it on Lewa Dock!

Book Recommendation

In February, Mark and Quincy saw NY Times best-selling author and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt, Ph.D., keynote the Camp Owners and Directors Association event held before the ACA National Conference. Haidt’s new book, The Anxious Generation, and the recent NPR article, “The Consequences of a Smartphone-Centered Childhood” confirm that a summer camp, without a phone, is the best place in the world for young adults. ACA National Board Chair-Elect Steve Baskin shared his insights on “Why Kids Need Summer Camp” on Haidt’s blog After Babel.
