Summer Camp at a Lighthouse
Boothbay region school children participated in summer camp sessions at the Burnt Island Light Station located in the entrance to Boothbay Harbor. Sponsored by generous donors to LENS, sixty children in grades 4-6 spent three days and one night learning about the island’s natural and historical resources. Using the 5-acre island as an exceptional, outdoor classroom, participants were fully immersed in their own learning while exploring, discovering, and understanding the world around them.
Camper Mackenzie T. stated, “It was the best experience that ever happened to me! While Shauna Y. exclaimed, “I will cherish these three days of my life.”
