At summer camp

At Nichols Day Camps, on Walker Pond in Sedgwick, campers of all ages swim, paddle, boat, participate in theater and arts and crafts, and form friendships with children and counselors from the peninsula and the world. This year, they partnered with peninsula nonprofit Community Compass and Castine’s Hatch Fund to provide more scholarships for campers.
