    IT’S BACK! 
    FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 – MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 6

    What is Friends Weekend?
    Friends weekend is a wonderful celebration about all things CAMP.  Alumni, camper families, and friends of camp come to Sebago Lake to spend the weekend doing activities, enjoying the beach and waterfront, sitting under the stars, and all ages get to act like kids 🙂

    We ask everyone to jump in to participate – enjoy an event and/or help supervise one! We are able to offer this weekend thanks to everyone that attends.  The guests are the staff that supervise the events. Everyone is a friend at Friends weekend so all are welcome! 

    Guests may start arriving on Friday and check out is 10am on Monday. You can sign-up for the entire weekend or just for a day! Housing reservations are on a first-come first-served basis and guests may stay in our staff cottages or camper cabins.

    Cost is $40.00 a day per person on Saturday and Sunday – there is no charge for Friday and Monday. Children 5 to 12 are $20.00 per day and kids under 5 are free. The daily rate is the same for both day guests and overnighters. Linens are not provided. 

    The schedule is always evolving and we love to add new activities! Do you have an idea for a craft or activity?? Let us know!!
