Children with disabilities in Piscataquis County can experience the freedom and fun of Pine Tree Camp this summer right in their own backyard. This August, Pine Tree Camp on the Road is coming to Guilford for a week-long summer camp day program featuring a safe, barrier-free experience to children with special needs.
“We know how hard it can be for families in Piscataquis County to travel to the Belgrade Lakes area, so we are removing that barrier by bringing the Pine Tree Camp experience to them,” said Nate Podgajny, assistant director of Pine Tree Camp.
Pine Tree Camp on the Road will take place August 8–12 at the Friends of Community Fitness Center in Guilford. Campers ages 5-16 with a disability and their siblings are welcome to attend. The week will be filled with barrier-free games and activities, including adaptive bikes, inflatable archery, and a brand-new land canoe on wheels.
“We’re always looking for ways to expand our impact,” said Nate. “This gives us the opportunity to make an immediate impact now while introducing more people to the benefits of the Pine Tree Camp experience.”
Pine Tree Camp is open to all who can benefit regardless of their ability to pay tuition. Full scholarships are available. Spaces are limited.
