Hello Camp Vega Family!
As we eagerly prepare for another unforgettable summer at Camp Vega, we are thrilled to share some exciting updates and additions to our camp programs and facilities. Each year, we strive to enhance the Vega experience, ensuring that our campers have the opportunity to create lasting memories, develop new skills, and forge lifelong friendships along the shores of Echo Lake.
Here’s a glimpse of what’s new at Camp Vega for the upcoming season:
New Program Offerings
We’re thrilled to introduce flag football as a new addition to our landsports program! While it was offered last year, the groundwork is set for a full launch this summer with coach Jaidyn Krassner returning. This fast-paced and exhilarating sport provides campers with a new opportunity to develop teamwork, coordination, and sportsmanship while having a blast on the field.
Mindfulness and wellness are essential components of the Camp Vega experience, and we’re excited to introduce yoga as a new program offering. Led by returning counselor Paulina Montaut who is undergoing instructor certification, our yoga sessions will provide campers with a peaceful retreat where they can relax, rejuvenate, stretch and connect with their inner selves.
Get ready to bring spirit and enthusiasm to the Vega community with our new cheerleading program! Campers will have the chance to learn cheers, stunts, and routines while building confidence, teamwork, and coordination in a supportive and encouraging environment with Christine “Poppins” Barnard.
Dining Hall Pavilion
Say goodbye to the tent on the dining hall deck (present since 2021) and hello to the new dining hall pavilion! We’ve replaced the tent with a beautiful pavilion, which matches the iconic aesthetic of Vega’s Dining Hall – including the glass “V” window. This new space will provide campers and staff with a more comfortable and inviting environment to enjoy delicious meals and hang out with friends.
Expanded Aquaglide Inflatables at Swim
Our waterfront afternoons and free swims, are always a highlight of the summer, and this year, we’re expanding our collection of Aquaglide inflatables at the swim area! Campers can look forward to even more fun and excitement as they bounce, slide, and splash their way through our inflatable obstacle course and water park.
Extensive Renovations to Katahdin and Tamary
The campers on Sugarkat Hill can be even more excited to enjoy a full renovation to Katahdin! Meanwhile Tamary will now enjoy an improved view without telephone poles at the main entrance as we’ve upgraded and buried the electrical and internet feed in conduit which will pave the way to further updates!
As we continue to make improvements and enhancements, our excitement and commitment to providing a safe, inclusive, and enriching environment remains unwavering. We can’t wait to welcome returning campers back to their summer home and extend a warm welcome to campers joining us for the first time.
Together, we can make summer 2024 the best one yet!
Kyle, Emily and the Vega Team
