Summer Camp for Adults
Time for a little R&R?
Remember summer camp when you were a kid – swimming, crafts, archery, and the rest? Never got to go to camp? Relax, we’ve got your adult summer camp planned out for you.
(* = admission included with stay.)
Day 1: Wake up to the scent of fresh-brewed coffee! After breakfast, head north on Rt 1 to Popham Beach* for a walk along the ruins of Fort Popham and Fort Baldwin. Collect sand dollars and climb the Fox Islands before heading back toward town for an afternoon at the Maine Maritime Museum*. (For an additional fee the Museum has an excellent boat tour along the Kennebec River where you can spot osprey, bald eagles, seals, sturgeon and lots of lighthouses.) Return to the inn and kick back on the front porch.
Day 2: Back out on the road, today you’re going to Boothbay. You can make a day of it by going down to the harbor for lobster rolls and sightseeing after your stroll through the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens*. Check off some more lighthouses in your guidebook with a drive around Southport Island. Book yourself on a whale watch at the dock in Boothbay Harbor. Or, opt for a clambake on Cabbage Island.
Day 3: Hang out in town today with some shopping and a couple of walk-on adventures* with LL Bean. Call ahead for the best times! Try out kayaking, stand up paddle boarding or archery. You can each experience something different and chat about it over dinner at one of Freeport’s excellent restaurants*.
Day 4: Head 20 minutes south today to Portland for your lobster boat cruise*. This 90 minute tour shows you the ropes (literally) of lobster fishing. Bait the traps, measure the lobsters, see the sights in the harbor. After your cruise wander around in the Old Port. (Any keeper lobsters are for sale on the boat – have them cooked up for you right on the dock!) Back in Freeport make plans for dinner* and a movie*.
Day 5: Wander around in Freeport shopping for a few hours before going home relaxed and refreshed.
