WINTHROP — Two one-week sessions will be held for children grades four to six at the YMCA Camp of Maine on Cobbossee Lake, East Winthrop. The sessions will run from July 17 to 21 and July 31 to Aug. 4. 

Campers will enhance their relationship with the natural world as they explore, observe and experience the nearby ponds, forests and fields while hiking, fishing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking.

They will record observations in their own nature journal; learn basic wilderness skills; and participate in ecology skits, crafts and games. Campers will also have a special session of “Tadpole Patrol” aboard a pontoon boat.

Camp will run daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Cost for each five-day session is $230 a person, and includes lunch and afternoon snack. Register by Saturday, July 1, for $220 a person. Early registration is recommended, as space is limited.
