Ahhh September, the days are getting a little shorter and the nights are certainly cooler.  It is a quiet, peaceful time of year around camp.  Wait a minute what is going on at the waterfront? Lifeguard training?  It looks like it is the directors and senior staff.  What a great time of year to find time to sharpen up their skills.

Who wouldn’t want to be in the lake on such a ‘Fine Maine Day?’

Our Runoia 2016 community is already forming and we are excited to connect with every new member.

Camp Runoia provides us all with the opportunities for Building Life Long Skills!
