Nature Day Camp Staff & Location
Our Camp Staff
Becky Kolak, Program Director: Becky enthusiastically shares her knowledge of the Kennebec Estuary through out the year working with people of all ages. She coordinates educational programming for students, families, and adults. From 2011 to 2016, she partnered with the Maine Maritime Museum to facilitate their Kennebec Explorers Summer Day Camp. She is excited to lead KELT's camp this summer!
Hannah Bonine, Camp Coordinator: Hannah is a current student at the University of Southern Maine and a Summer Program Steward at KELT. Her 13 years as a Girl Scout instilled a love for nature and working with others, especially kids! Hannah was a camp counselor for multiple years at other summer camps for the Girl Scouts and the Bath YMCA. She is thrilled to be coordinating camp this August for KELT!
Holt Research Forest Outdoor Classroom
KELT is pleased to partner with the Maine TREE Foundation to use their outdoor classroom at Holt Research Forest in Arrowsic. Situated on the shores of Sewall Pond, the rustic outdoor classroom boasts a partially-walled, covered pavilion, Amish outhouse, gravel parking area, and ample access to the woods and shoreline.
Each day, campers will meet camp staff in the parking area. Then campers will take the short walk to the pavilion where bags and backpacks can be dropped off and adventures can begin!
Driving Directions: From Bath, take Route 1 North over the Sagadahoc Bridge. Follow Route 127 South (toward Arrowsic and Georgetown - Reid State Park). Stay on Route 127 for 2.3 miles. Turn left onto Old Stage Road (intersection just before the Arrowsic Town Office) and follow it for 2.5 miles. The outdoor classroom's gravel parking lot is on the right.
The map below is to the Holt Research Forest offices. The outdoor classroom is ~500 feet south on the right.
