One aspect of Winona that separates it from many other camps (and the rest of the world) is that it is completely unplugged for all campers – giving them the unique opportunity to connect more deeply with both their peers and counselors they live with as well as with the nature and landscape that surrounds them. Winona is a member of the Maine Camp Experience which recently shared a post called “Unplugged, Unstoppable: The Power of Powering Down” which does a tremendous job of highlighting just a few of the many aspects of “unplugging” that we find to be extremely valuable here on the shores of Moose Pond. Give it a read and let us know what you think!
Here is an excerpt from the article – to read the rest, just click the link attached below!
“One of the truly unique and wonderful elements of Maine Camp Experience camps is that they allow children to step into a different world for the summer. For up to two months, bedrooms become bunks and pavement surrenders to dirt or gravel pathways as the cities or suburbs melt away to be replaced by the stunning natural beauty Maine has to offer. However, perhaps the most vitally rustic part of the camp experience lies in the fact that, from the moment they step onto campus, children are forced to step away from their electronics, and cell towers ultimately give way to towering pines.”
