For 76 summers, Pine Tree Camp in Rome has been the place Maine people with disabilities return to experience a summer camp filled with traditional Maine outdoor activities.

Now, according to the Portland Press Herald, for the first time ever, this winter folks can experience Pine Tree Camp like they’ve never seen it before, in the winter, with snow & ice and all the fun activities that come with the season.

If this sounds like a great way to reconnect with nature for you and your family, you'll need to get your hands on the "Pine Tree Camp Adventure Day Pass". This pass provides a safe, physically distanced and accessible way for Maine people with disabilities and their families to get outdoors and experience the restorative benefits of nature.  Activities are supported by experienced staff following covid-19 protocols to keep all their guests safe.

The camp director, Dawn Willard-Robinson says;

“We will offer snowshoeing, ice fishing, nature exploration and, of course, s’mores by the fire. Accessible access to the outdoors has never been more important and Pine Tree Camp is committed to filling that need. It's all about keeping people connected, and that is the very essence of what we do, and, during this time of physical distancing, that’s more important than ever.””

The Harold and Bibby Alfond Dining Hall will be open as a warming hut complete with safe, physically distanced tables where families can picnic and take part in craft breaks at separate, assigned tables; providing guests the chance to stretch their imaginations in addition to exercising outside.

The Pine Tree Camp Adventure Day Pass activities will include:

  • Snowshoeing
  • Ice Fishing
  • Outdoor fire stations with s’mores
  • Indoor crafts
  • Warming hut
