It’s Pine Tree Camp’s 75th anniversary and Q106.5’s Scott Miller and Cindy Campbell have a special message for Maine snowmobilers.
“On Saturday, February 1st, we are inviting anyone who has a sled to join us in support of Pine Tree Camp,” said Scott Miller. “Rest assured, you will not have to carry raw eggs, that will be left to us.”
The Q106.5 Egg Ride is a cornerstone of the Dysart’s Ride-in with its tradition of Egg Riders stuffing raw eggs down their snowmobile suits. Each egg represents a $50 pledge from Q106.5 listeners to support Pine Tree Camp, a summer camp for Maine children and adults with disabilities.
“We’re asking everyone who loves to ride to join Scott, Emily, Courtney and I as we take to the trails at the Hungry Hollow ‘76ers Snowmobile Club in Levant for the 25-mile trip to Dysart’s and help us send Maine kids with disabilities to camp this summer,” said Cindy Campbell.
Pine Tree Camp receives no state or federal funding and ninety-nine percent of campers require tuition assistance. One hundred percent of proceeds from this unique fundraiser support Pine Tree Society’s Campership Fund.

Campers actively participate in all the activities for which Maine is famous – kayaking, boating, fishing and hiking – experiencing freedom and independence. In addition, Pine Tree Camp provides their families with much needed respite. Since 1945, Pine Tree Camp has welcomed all who could benefit, regardless of their ability to pay.
