Emily

I am the director of Camp Chewonki for Girls. I live in Wiscasset, Maine with my partner Nicky, and my cat Willow! I grew up in Bath, Maine and first came to Chewonki as a sixth grader in the Outdoor Classroom. I returned in 2015 as a teacher in Chewonki's Elementary and Middle School. When I'm not having fun with kids outside, you can find me making music, paddling a canoe, gardening, or going for runs! I am looking forward to staying connected with my camp community this summer!

Old Friends and a New Campus

As Fall settles here in Maine, leaves have begun to change color, the grass is frosty in the morning, and the birds are getting ready to fly away south. Even with all of this beauty, summer is the season I am holding in my heart, because summer is when I will get to see you all, and have your laughter and energy filling up Chewonki Neck! I can’t say how much I missed you this past summer, and I cannot wait for summer 2021. Make sure you let me know that I will see you by filling out your application as soon as possible!

Since I saw you last, we have been working hard to make sure camp is even better next summer. The new campus for Girls Camp has been completed, and I can’t wait for you to see it! We will be holding a virtual ribbon cutting in the coming weeks, so you can get a tour of the new cabins, and get excited for next summer! We will also be having events every month between now and opening day of camp. You and all your camp friends can gather on Zoom to catch up and play fun games together. We have also updated some of the names of our programs, and developed a new website! We will be sharing more information about these improvements very soon.

Please stay in touch and let me know if you have any questions, or any news to update me on! It’s been too long since we were gathered around the campfire, singing songs, and laughing together. We’ll be together again soon!
