Staff Orientation

Blog-1We are in the midst of Staff Training on Echo Lake. It’s been a great week so far of prep sessions, seminars, setting up program areas, training and staff bonding. Today is a “Typical Day At Camp.”  All our Acadian and Apache Specialists play the role of campers and Program Staff have the opportunity to try out their instructional techniques before the weekend. The Fields, Courts, Art Studios, Equestrian Center, Aerial Park and Waterfront are in full swing. We’re just waiting for you!  Remember to check the Travel Confirmation emails you received last week and be sure you’re  ready and on time at the airport or bus departure locations. Enjoy the last week at home with family…because your summer family awaits you in Readfield!!Blog-2

We Can’t Wait For Campers to Arrive!

Camp is only hours away!!!  Our staff spent the last couple of days unpacking, setting up cabins, making work wheels and nametags and getting each cabin and bed set just right so when campers arrive, they’ll feel right at home.  Laurel Today is up and running so make sure you check out photos of Staff Orientation right on the Camp Laurel website.  Everyone here is so excited for the Laurel Family to reunite once again!  Safe travels to everyone this weekend.   We can’t wait for you to get here!!
