Make Reunion 2018 a family vacation!
Camp Bates offers engaging programming for children ages 4 to 13 on Friday evening, Saturday morning, and Saturday evening. Children must be pre-registered ($25 per child) to participate, as we need to arrange adequate staffing.
“I like Camp Bates because I got to dance with the Bobcat and play in the bounce house. I got my face painted like a Bobcat and I liked the counselors.” — Avery, age 6
All programs are run by Bates students and are headquartered in the air-conditioned Pettengill Hall. You are welcome to check your children in and out of the programs throughout the day to suit your family’s needs.
If you are bringing children too young to attend Camp Bates, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-755-5976 for a list of babysitters.
