We are so excited to announce that Water Monkey Camp is moving to its new, permanent location directly on the shores of Merrymeeting Lake. This property is the fulfillment of the Water Monkey Camp dream where we have a small, self-contained community of campers and staff pursuing their wakeboarding, waterskiing, wakesurfing, and wakeskating goals and ambitions. On the property we have:
- Five cottages with two or three bedrooms in each as well as a full bathroom. Campers and staff will live in these cottages just a few steps from the lake.
- Clubhouse on the sandy beach for group use. This is where camp will have meetings, cook-outs, watch movies, play games, and hold indoor instruction on white-boards and with digital video captured out on the lake.
- Large multi-purpose field where campers and staff will have fun when they are not actively out on the water. Think pick-up games of ultimate frisbee, soccer, kickball, etc.
- Sandy beach and T-Dock on the lake where the two camp boats will be happily docked. Campers and staff - under the supervision of lifeguards - will be able to swim, SUP, and enjoy the gorgeous New Hampshire summer from this amazing spot.
No matter how great the location, though, it is camp's top-notch staff and amazing campers that really make the experience. Camp will still emphasize superior instruction using the best boats and equipment, gourmet, home-cooked meals, and a safe, constructive environment. What Water Monkey Camp has done is embrace the best parts of traditional camps and apply them to a watersports-intensive program to create a unique place for boys and girls to thrive and have an awesome time.
As we get started working on the property this spring I will be sure to post pictures so you can share in our excitement and anticipation of this season at the new location.
