Summer Photos and Stories

Pine Island’s 115th season was another great one! Our campers earned ranks in their favorite activities and built solid shelters in woodcraft, well-crafted projects in the workshop, and most importantly, a community in which each boy’s participation and energy was needed. They also logged an impressive number of miles on the trails and waterways of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. Sixteen boys earned their 50-mile patch, 13 earned their 100-mile patch, 10 earned their 150- and 200-mile patches, 12 earned their 250-mile patch, and 11 boys passed their 250 career mile mark this summer. That’s a lot of miles! It was an incredible summer and we’re grateful to our campers, parents, staff and volunteers for making this season such a success.
For some more insight into our summer, you can view photos from camp and the trail and read the Mid-Summer Pine Needle, a terrific collection of camper articles, poetry, and art.   Enjoy!
