Overview

The Wilton summer program is an overnight experience for young girls on beautiful Wilson Lake in Wilton, Maine. This program includes laid-back fun summertime activities with the added excitement of being right on the lake for a week-long overnight. I will host seven girls, ages 8-10 and 10-12, at a private house on Wilson Lake.  We will enjoy the lake, hiking, berry picking, playing games, doing arts and crafts, cooking over an open campfire almost every night, and generally enjoying outdoor life in Maine in the summer!

  • Once the girls arrive, together we will plan and organize several details, including meals, grocery shopping, hiking, movies, games, arts and crafts and more. I know the Wilton-Farmington area very well, including the Tumbledown/Mount Blue park region, and we will explore it all together!

  • We will integrate cooking, baking, ice cream making, scavenger hunts, and many other simple fun activities.

*Check out the blog to see what we did last year!

Why?
