Newport will be the place to be Jan. 31-Feb. 2 as the 41st annual Dysart’s Snowmobile Ride-In to Benefit Pine Tree Camp will be taking place.

The weekend will feature all of the events that participants have come to love – community breakfasts and dinners, an auction, a pageant, fireworks and some new ones that are sure to be exciting.

Organizers say they are thrilled to welcome back the RaveX Outer Limits Freestyle Traveling Show. The performance will feature freestyle snowmobilers showcasing an acrobatic and dare-devil performance. Check out the complete weekend schedule.

But the weekend is about more than just simple fun. It’s also a great way to help benefit a good cause as once again, the Pine Tree Camp will be the beneficiary of all money raised during the event.

Every summer, more than 650 Maine children and adults with disabilities arrive at Pine Tree Camp and their lives are transformed. Driving down the camp road, campers enter a world that is barrier-free, leaving behind the confines of their disability thanks to our 285-acre fully-accessible campus, committed and well-trained staff and peer support.

At Pine Tree Camp, campers make friends for the first time; friends who understand what they are going through. 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 the $1,900 tuition. All proceeds from the Snowmobile Ride-in will go to Pine Tree Camp’s Campership Fund.
