In between lunch and rehearsals (12:30pm-1:30pm), campers take advantage of downtime by playing basketball, soccer, Frisbee, or capture the flag. Campers participate in many camp-specific daytime activities, such as a camp-wide ping-pong tournament and The Gotcha! challenge. This period is also our scheduled call hours, during which campers may receive check-in calls from home. As in all our periods throughout the day, campers are supervised by their bunk counselors.
After dinner, campers participate in our exciting and innovative Evening Activity program. These activities are theatrical, often team-based activities meant to encourage fun, creativity and bonding. They include Harry Potter adventure night, So You Think You Can Dance challenge, Talent Show, Make Your Own Music Video, The Horror Radio Play, a Scavenger Hunt and Student-Directed Scenes. On some nights, we head into town for the movies or a stop at world famous Gifford’s ice cream.
Mid-way through each session, Acting Manitou takes a break from rehearsal and heads off-camp for a day exploring the most beautiful areas in Maine. Recent Trip Days have included hikes and visits to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, Portland, Belfast, and Boothbay. Highlights from past years include The Colby College Museum of Art, performances at Maine State Music Theatre and Timber Tina's Great Maine Lumberjack Show, and live music on the mall in Brunswick!
