After doing a little research, I found that the phrase “camp” did not always hold the meaning that it has today. For years in the early 1900’s, summer camp was a place that families would go together, usually near some body of water, and create a sort of summer escape. They would build simple, small structures and get together after a day of fishing or clamming to enjoy each other’s company.

We try to carry on the tradition of family camp today and will be hosting our annual Labor Day Family Camp in just a few short weeks. Interested? Only a few spots remain so act quickly to get the most out of the last few days of summer.
