Each staff member is a specialist who teaches one of the activities Androscoggin offers. Campers travel to activities with other boys from their age group and, over the course of the summer, are scheduled for every activity in the program. Consequently, each staff member will work with every age group and ability level. As skill development and exposure to new activities are key elements of our program, it is important that staff members have experience in their particular activity.
As important as one’s competence or experience, however, are enthusiasm and a desire to teach.
The activities offered at Androscoggin include: tennis, baseball, soccer, basketball, lacrosse, golf, street hockey, flag football, archery, riflery, arts and crafts, pottery, woodworking, animation, nature and camp craft, ropes, radio, video, dramatics, music, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, fishing, sailing, water-skiing, wakeboarding and paddle boarding. Androscoggin also offers an extensive day and overnight tripping program in addition to the on-campus activities.
