Sebago Wohelo adjoins Little Wohelo (“Little Camp”), but has a separate program with facilities specifically for older girls.

At Sebago Wohelo activities are free choice – campers create their own daily schedules based on interests and goals.

 

Swimming and Diving

p7060014waterfront400This is a view of a small portion of the lap lanes at Sebago Wohelo.  Three laps are a quarter mile.  Some swimmers come down for a “quick” mile and zip off to canoeing or some other activity,  others might spend an hour doing a quarter mile – chatting in the lap lanes with a friend and a flutterboard.

Sailing & Racing

Sebago Wohelo has over a dozen MIT tech dingies (shown here) that are excellent for learning to sail as well as advancing sailing skills.  We launch directly from a protected deep water cove. Girls at Sebago Wohelo may choose to work for their Crew, Ordinary or Able Seaman Award as well as participate in the racing program.windsurffast1

Canoeing / Kayaking / Paddle Boarding / Trips

Morning crew practice before breakfast all summer leads to great performances at Watersports Day at the end of camp.

Crafts

Crafts are a big part of the Sebago Wohelo curriculum and we are proud of our staff and facilities. Anne Hutchinson – a 4th generation Gulick family member – has taken over overseeing the craft hill. We are lucky to have her.

All crafts are free choice and generally open all day.

Crafts at Sebago Wohelo uphold the high level of quality we see in every activity at camp.  Staff help campers (and counselors) in designing an appropriate piece as well as in the creation of that piece. We aim to have every completed piece be something of which the camper will be proud.

Tennis

afh_9650afh_8680

Tennis classes of various levels are offered throughout the day and we encourage campers to sign up for their appropriate level and continue with those lessons throughout the summer. Many girls choose only to play free tennis with their friends or during an Camp tournament (such as the Wo-Open).

Competitive players also have 2 weekly opportunities to play with nearby camps and several 4 camp tournaments during the summer.

Dance

Dance usually meets for two hours every morning.  Often the first hour is a warm-up, aerobic type workout and the second hour concentrates on dance skills and preparing for one of the summer performances.

Drama

afh_1975Drama meets for an hour an a half each activity day.  Usually in the afternoon.  The first half of the summer often starts with improv, acting drill and writing skits for the half session show.  The second half of the summer concentrates on the final performance.

Nature / Ecology

Learning about our surrounding and how to take care of ourselves in the Out-Of-Doors.

Nature Walks are a common sight around Sebago Wohelo.

Music

We encourage campers at both camps to bring their own instruments (we have pianos!) and play for us in the evenings.
