25th Bath Savings Institution Paddle for Pine Tree Camp
Thank you all who participated in the Bath Savings Paddle for Pine Tree Camp this June. You can still donate to the Paddle through July 1st at this LINK
The 25th Annual Bath Savings Paddle for Pine Tree Camp will be safely back on the Kennebec River this year, observing all Covid precautions as we enjoy the Maine outdoors in the spirit of Pine Tree Camp. Your health and safety is our top event priority. There will be complete covid-safety precautions in place at the Kennebec event, including a choice of staggered start times! For those who are not able to paddle with us on June 5th, you can participate again virtually, enjoying your own favorite activity while joining others to raise vital funds for Camp this summer.
Pine Tree Camp responded nimbly to the pandemic in March of 2020, immediately providing outreach through online programs – this Pine Tree Camp to You extended into six one-week themed virtual summer sessions. Our unique Adventure Day Pass, providing covid-safe outings for campers and their families/caregivers, allow people with disabilities to continue to enjoy their favorite outdoor activities. Then, through creative and successful fundraising, we were able to secure additional outdoor equipment, and Pine Tree Camp is now running all four seasons, a long-time goal!
For Summer of 2021, Camp staff have created two additional programs – a stand-alone Adaptive Bike Program plus Family Camping. With all four of these new programs in place, we are opening Camp up to hundreds more each season.
We need your support more than ever. Join us for the 25th Bath Savings Paddle for Pine Tree Camp NOW!
TWO WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
1. Paddle on the Kennebec River on June 5th
Our traditional Paddle for Pine Tree Camp experience. Join us and bring your fundraising team as we paddle the Kennebec River for Pine Tree Camp on Saturday, June 5th. The adventure starts at the Evergreen Campground and ends in North Anson.
Go on a bike ride. Take a family hike on a local trail. Walk around your neighborhood. Have a dance party. Or, jump in your kayak and go for a paddle. The choice is yours- what will YOU do? (And we’d love it if you’d share with us and other participants!)
Just remember, with every pedal, step, or cut in the water, you are making a big impact on the lives of Maine people with disabilities who depend on Pine Tree Camp.
We ask that all paddlers raise a minimum of $100 – all proceeds from the Paddle for Pine Tree Camp support Pine Tree Camp’s Open Door Policy.
