You asked, and we listened! The 26th annual Bath Savings Paddle for Pine Tree Camp Paddle returns this June with a new twist: not one, but two rivers to choose from!
Paddlers will have the chance to reunite in Solon for the traditional route down the Kennebec River or experience a new loop on the Androscoggin River in Brunswick.
Both paddles are family-friendly and perfect for all ages, skill levels and abilities. Paddlers can also opt to participate virtually. Registration is required and full Covid safety protocols will be in place.
Expanding the paddle to two rivers and making it a weekend-long event serves one purpose: to raise funds for Maine kids and adults with disabilities to experience freedom and independence at Pine Tree Camp. We are Maine’s only American Camping Association-Accredited camp for people with disabilities and 100% of proceeds from this event directly benefit Pine Tree Camp’s Open Door Policy.
Exciting news: For the first time in two years, Pine Tree Camp’s overnight summer camp sessions return; bringing Maine kids and adults with disabilities back together for a much-needed week of friendship and fun on the shores of North Pond. The return of summer camp makes a two-day paddle celebration particularly fitting!
Coming together to enjoy the Maine outdoors embodies the spirit of Pine Tree Camp. Throughout the pandemic, our fully accessible campus has been open for day use and family overnights; safely ensuring Maine people with disabilities full access to the outdoors in all four seasons. We’ll continue those offerings again this fall and winter.
Did you know? Since 1945, Pine Tree Camp has welcomed all who could benefit, regardless of their ability to pay. The funds raised from the Bath Savings Paddle for Pine Tree Camp are a critical part of our open-door tuition policy all year-round.
We need your support more than ever. Join us for the 26th Bath Savings Paddle for Pine Tree Camp NOW!
