We opened our hearts and shared our special campground with the family this year when we decided to book two cabins and go down the river in tubes. The Oaks cabin and The Pines cabin were filled to the brim (we won’t talk about the cockroaches and ants that stayed with us)! We arrived on Sunday and let the kids float down the river with the current. We enjoyed sausages and hot dogs the first night, hot dogs and sausages on the second night, and of course, s’mores over the campfire. Tunes and conversation filled up the late night hours while the kids slept soundly in their beds.
The next morning we were busy packing lunches and blowing up 15 tubes to float down the river. What could go wrong? The 11:00 departure from camp was a bit chaotic, but we were on our way! “A O River” was the quote of the day as we made our way down the Kennebec floating with the current. We stopped at “sand hill drop-off,” “the rope swing,” “sandwich island,” and last but not least, “the pile-ons” for jumping. The kids and adults loved the whole experience and we didn’t lose any tubes! And, oh yeah, we even stayed on schedule completing the trip in 5 hours!
