Happenings at Greenland Point Center

Wow, what a week! The grounds have been a hub bub of activity over the past week. We are grateful for the assistance from the folks at Down East Correctional Facility for their help in installing our dock system.  And with the docks in place, that can only mean one thing. WATER ACTIVITIES! Now, find those bathing suits and swim trunks to be sure they still fit!

Preparing our grounds is an ongoing activity and keeps us as busy as we can be.

Our Wet-N-Wild camp, first session is scheduled from 6/25-6/30 which is just around the corner.  But, if those dates are not good for you, you can opt for our second session which runs from 8/6-8/11.  Our Wet-N-Wild camps offer canoes, map and compass reading, boater safety, animal and fish identification, kayaking, fishing, campouts, night walks and “Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs.”  This camping adventure is focused on children from 8-12 yrs.  Should your child be a bit older, our Wet-N-Wilder experience is for 13-17 yrs and is scheduled to run 7/16-7/21. 

If you area school is still open, they have applications, or you can contact at 796-5186, glpcmaine@gmail.com, or by requesting one on our Facebook page. 

Our facilities are situated on a 64 acre peninsula which extends into Long Lake in Princeton, ME. The peninsula is covered in a mature forest rich with wildlife.  The camp is comprised of twelve log or wood-framed cabins that blend into the forest and provide warm accommodations for sleeping. Cabins are comfortably furnished with single beds or bunks and are handicapped accessible.  The main lodge is also handicapped accessible and is a traditional Maine Sporting Camp style, seating 80.  Meals are prepared in our well-equipped kitchen and shared in the lodge dining hall.

Applications are coming in, so be sure to reserve a spot for your child soon.  Partial scholarships are available. Medical staff and lifeguards are on site.

We also are preparing a Cash Calendar fundraising effort for the month of July.  Board members are selling tickets to be drawn for daily cash prizes. Ticket holders can win multiple times because your number is returned to the barrel after the draw. We have committed a total of $1500.00 in prizes including $100.00 EVERY Saturday and $200.00 in honor of July 4th.  Tickets are $10.00.  Get your ticket by contacting board members including: Ken Getchell of Roque Bluffs, Dennis Sprowl of Machias, Darin McGaw of Baileyville, Jamie Bohanon of Baileyville, Bill Kokodnicki of Princeton, Chris White of Princeton, Marcia Hayward of Calais, or Jon Speed of Princeton.

Plan for your child to spend some time at Greenland Point Center this summer!
