Teen Service Program

Teen Service Program

Developing Engaged, Civic Minded Teens through SERVICE LEARNING and STEWARDSHIP

The Summits Program at Camp Nashoba North provides teens with a truly unique opportunity to participate in a traditional, Maine sleep-away camp setting; while gaining experience serving others.

Summits is more than simply a summer experience!  It’s a life experience with value and purpose that extends far beyond the boundries of a single summer.  It provides the “Gift of Service” to you and those you serve.  Spending two weeks in the Beautiful surroundings of the Sebago Lakes Region with like-minded peers and two terrific Nashoba leaders is an ideal way to look beyond yourself and to give to others.  In the process, you will get so much more in return!

Summits focus on tangible, hands-on service learning and stewardship.  Imagine yourself  at a local food bank packing supplies for those in need or assisting with activities at a local non-profit camp focused on children with terminal illnesses.  Picture yourself  helping organize and sort medical supplies for those in need around the world or helping care for animals at a local animal shelter.

 

Key Elements of the Summits Program:

  • Opportunity to achieve up to 30+ hours of documented, community service.

What teens and parents are saying about Summits:
“My favorite part of the summer was the Summits Trips.  I enjoyed every bit of the last two weeks because I got to experience and try new things that many summer camps do not offer.” – 2016 Summer Summit 

“My son enjoyed and learned so much through the Summits Program by participating in many hands-on activities with different organizations.  I’ve never seen him looking so excited and happy holding a paint brush, picking tomatoes, raking gravel, etc…” – 2016 Summit Parent
