This is Alex and I’m writing my first post for our family’s website. let me tell you this was worth it. I am 10 years old and i want to tell you about my summer camp with Adventurelore.
It all started off as a get together at the Adventurelore headquarters. We shared our interests in a game and then we headed off onto the bus. We set up camp after a beautiful trip on the bus. When we arrived it was all just woods but we filled it up with tents.
On the first day it was raining so we hiked trough a long dark tunnel to a waterfall, we splashed and had a great time at the waterfall but it was very cold.
We went back to camp and had hamburgers for dinner cooked on a grill.
On day two after eating disgusting pancakes (Yuck) we headed to the mountains for a hike. The hike was with a group of older kids and we hiked up Artist’s Bluff and saw where The Old Man of the Mountain used to be before it collapsed.
After the hike we went canoeing and kayaking.
When we returned to camp we had the Adventurelore olympics.
For dinner we had Tacos which was my favorite meal!! I loved the sriracha.
The next day we went on a big canoe race and some of the kids jumped off a bridge. I did not jump but maybe next year.
I went on scary rides over and over again. This was my favorite ride it was called The Half Pipe.
The lazy River was fun a kid stole my floaty so I had to swim after him.
After the waterpark we stopped at a school where we played capture the flag with a beautiful sunset in the background of the field. We ate pizza and went back to camp. The last day we just went into town and bought some gifts and snacks.
The trip was great fun and if you are ready for adventure than Adventurelore is the place for you.
Here I am relaxing watching TV after the trip with the “little hands” I bought at the gift shop.
The campground is located on an island and peninsula so most of the sites are lake front. Within easy distance from the sites are canoe or kayak rentals and a nice swimming beach.
The sites themselves are spacious, wooded and very private.
This is a great family camping spot with all of the amenities you could want and a lot of activities available. Not a wilderness experience and it can be crowded and buggy at times but ideal for families.
The campground at the park is spectacular. Many of the sites are nicely spaced and provide a secluded camping experience right on the lakeshore. There are canoe and kayak rentals available. and the swimming beach is only a short walking distance from most sites.
There are weeklong (Saturday to Saturday) cabin rentals available as well.
On the west side of the park there is an access road winding through forests and ponds.
Pawtuckaway is a great park for a week of family camping or if in the area it is also great for day use. If you are staying at the campground and want a night out I suggest The Tuckaway Tavern in Raymond as a good spot for a nice meal. They also have a nice butcher shop to pick up meat for the barbeque.
