Building Friendships

The welcome you will get the minute you get to camp will be the beginning of a whole new part of your life. Being at Vega is a very special experience you will be able to share with other Vega campers and even with friends from home. You will make the kind of friends you’ve never had before. The times you will share and the experiences you will have together create bonds of friendship that can truly last a lifetime. You will have the chance to work together with your new friends making your cabin into a cozy summer home. Or being on a team together and developing the kind of friendships that teamwork fosters.

Some of the most special times may be singing together with everyone at Vega around our weekly Sunset Circle campfire. At Sunset Circle you and your bunkmates can have the chance to share your thoughts with the rest of camp, and sing with everyone our Vega songs while the beauty of Maine and Echo Lake surrounds you.


Before you even get to camp, you will be introduced to a very special Vega camper who has already been to camp and who will help you in so many ways when you are a first time camper. She is your Big Sister, and she will visit your cabin, and help you find things at camp while you are getting to know your way. During the summer your Big Sister will bring you little surprises that will make you feel very special.

You will also have the opportunity to make friends with girls your age before you even get to camp. Just let us know what your interests are and we will find someone with similar interests who lives nearby and the two of you can get in touch with each other before camp!

When you are older and a returning camper, you will have the chance to be a Big Sister to another young girl just like you who is brand new. Vega girls take this job very seriously because they all remember just how important it is to have a Big Sister that first summer.
