What’s Going on at Camp?

It’s another beautiful day in the state of Maine! The sun is shining and Echo Lake is warm and inviting! While camp is so quiet this summer, there’s still a lot going on. We’ve replaced the last three Acadian Cabins and they look amazing; the new Council Fire above Tanager is magnificent; the Fields are freshly mowed and the Courts are ready – now all we need is you in 2021!

Jem, Debbie, and Peter are also prepping to make 2021 the best summer ever. They’re diving into Staff Orientation, Evening Programs, S-Days, and much, much more. Our Campus Leaders and Head Counselors will join Jem, Debbie and Peter for a Zoom Summit next week to begin putting our team together for next June.

This Thursday, July 23rd, is our first ever social media Laurel Spirit Day. We encourage anyone who wants to share their enthusiasm for Laurel to wear their Laurel gear and tag us on Instagram and/or Facebook stories. Missing everyone and looking forward to seeing you all again on the shores of Echo Lake in eleven months.

Celebrating Independence Day

It was certainly a quieter July 4th on Echo Lake over the weekend. Looking back at photos from previous summers, though, reminds us how lucky we are to have celebrated Independence Day together in Maine.  We’re grateful for the fun programs our Department Heads plan like Red, White and Boogie at Dance, Ring the Liberty Bell at Climbing, US Open Tournament at Tennis and countless others. Of course, the special July 4th Cookout and the best fireworks show in Maine cap off an amazing day.

We missed seeing your patriotic face paint and hearing Happy Birthday (Laurel-style, of course!) for the USA. Most of all, we wanted to share smiles and laughs with all of you – our campers and counselors.

We’re beyond thankful for the energetic and caring community we have. And we appreciate the Laurel family so much for carrying that spirit forward. We hope you had an enjoyable and safe weekend. We’re already looking forward to celebrating America’s Independence Day on the shores of Echo Lake in 2021!
