For all camp parents, including us who also happen to be camp directors, it can be gut-wrenching to be away from our children while they’re at camp. So why do we do it?! We’re excited to share the first of a series of blog posts by Dr. Tracy Brenner, a psychologist, Maine camp alumna and […]

Imagine a Vega Olympic Flag raised up the flagpole on days when Vega Olympic events take place throughout the summer! We have decided we would like to do just that and want your help to create one. We would love to see your ideas of what a Camp Vega Olympic flag might look like! If […]

It seems (and they have even stated) that they would rather spend their summer playing video games online with their friends and watching endless Youtube, […]

So many people made the 2022 summer unforgettably outstanding through countless kind deeds and pursuits to improve themselves and those around […]
Parents can spend quite a bit of time preparing for their child’s overnight summer camp experience. Providing all of the necessary information, ordering and packing the clothes and supplies from the packing list, and confirming logistics for travel to and from camp can seem (to put it lightly for some) challenging. Those efforts are being […]
We are enjoying putting together every camper’s schedule and helping campers and parents envision the details of what their summer will look like! We have also received requests that we are planning to introduce flag football and handball at camp this summer. These activities will take place during landsports activity periods or during evening activities. STEAM: We […]
We have heard time and time again from campers, staff and alumni that Sunset Circle was, and is, one of their favorite events at Vega. The steeped tradition of what takes place there resonates throughout our entire camp community…especially some camp songs with original lyrics and tunes created and adapted by campers and staff that […]
