A mid-summer tradition

Our expedition campers returned earlier this week from their 16-day canoe adventure on the Penobscot, Allagash and St. John Rivers. Their next trip will be a visit to Whitehead Island before they set off for a 10-day hike on Vermont’s Long Trail. But for now they and the entire Pine Island community are in camp for the camp picture and Pine Island’s traditional Regatta, which was held in perfect, sparkling weather this afternoon. The Regatta included canoe, kayak, dory, and sailboat races, as well as War Yacht time trials, and every PIC camper participated.

Tonight after dinner, campers will head up to Honk Hall, which has been transformed for this special night into Club Honk. They’ll take their seats at milk-crate tables, peruse the menu of assorted candies, of which they can select two, and settle in for an evening of musical entertainment. It’s a mid-summer tradition!
