Please keep in the mind the following for this trip:

  • Please pack your child a disposable lunch

For this trip campers will travel to Canobie Lake Park in Salem, New Hampshire, New England’s premier family amusement park with over 85 rides, games, live shows and attractions. They will spend their day flying down rides, like Boston Tea Party, Untamed, and Starblaster and splashing around in Castaway Island. To learn more about the attractions check out http://www.canobie.com/rides.php Each camper will be placed in a group with other campers who like to do the same types of rides and activities. A counselor will take each group around for the day.

For this trip please keep the following in mind:

  • Please pack a disposable lunch
  • If your camper plans to visit Castaway Island they should pack a bathing suit and towel
  • No extra money is required but if your camper would like to play games or purchase snacks you may send it.

We will arrive back at camp at 5:00 pm for pick up. 


Trailblazers Grades 6 & 7 and Trailbreakers Grades 8 & 9

Tuesday, July 30th Both the Trailblazers and Trailbreakers will travel to OSG Paintball in Barnstead, NH to play some paintball. OSG is one of the first dedicated paintball fields in the country and continues to be among the best outdoor fields. OSG Paintball Field enforces strict regulations regarding conduct, safety equipment and the power of paint-guns to ensure a safe and fun visit for all!

Please keep in the mind the following for this trip:

  • If your camper is going on this trip a waiver must be completed online. Fill it out here. Even if you filled out this waiver for a previous trip it is better to fill it out again as it links directly to our reservation and thus does not need to be looked up in the system speeding up your child’s check in.  
  • Please have your camper pack a disposable lunch.
  • Campers should wear any dark clothing . Long sleeve shirts and pants are the best options. They will get dirty. Old and comfortable will be their best bet.  Chest protectors will be available to all who want them, if you want an extra layer of protection!
  • Closed toed shoes must be worn on this trip, again an old pair of sneakers works best.

Pick up for OSG is 6:00 pm

Featuring newly updated docks and ample lifeguard staff, this is the perfect place for our teens to hang out with their friends.

Please keep in mind the following for this trip:

  • Campers should pack a bagged lunch
  • Campers should wear a bathing suit and bring a towel

Other Important Camp Reminders

  • All campers should come to camp prepared to swim daily! This means wearing or packing a bathing suit and towel.
  • We will spend a great deal of time outdoors, so sunscreen is a must! Please have your camper come to camp with sunscreen already applied and more sunscreen packed in their backpack for reapplication. Remember, if you would like counselors to be able to assist your camper, you will have needed to indicate that on campdoc.com.
  • Campers need to be able to carry their belongings throughout the day. Please keep this in mind when selecting and packing their bag.
  • There is time for a morning snack and lunch at camp. These are NOT provided. Please pack your child with nonperishable items; we eat a picnic-style lunch.
  • Campers should arrive at camp with a full water bottle that can be refilled throughout the day.
  • We want to remind you that we have two options for K-5 arrival and dismissal. You may enter the drop off/pick up line and staff will help your child in and out of the car. If you need to get out of your vehicle for any reason including getting bags out of your car, helping a child get buckled into a car seat, or just to give your little one an extra hug goodbye, we ask that you please park in the lot next to the gym and walk you camper over. This means that many of our Pioneer Parents will probably need to park to ensure their campers can get strapped in and out of the car. This helps us keep our pickup and drop off line moving and prevents dangerous maneuvers from taking place in the line. A full description of our arrival and dismissal procedures can be read in the parent handbook. Do note that Trailblazer and Trailbreaker Camps have a different drop off and pick up location.
  • Wednesday and Thursday are also Pizza Day! Forget the hassle of packing a lunch and grab a slice from us. Pizza will be on sale for $2 for 1 slice and $3 for 2 slices.

Under the Sea Dress Up Day is Thursday. Come as your favorite fish, sea mammal, boat, coral or anything else that lives in the ocean. We can’t wait to see what makes its way to shore at camp this year!
