Spring Fever Adventure!!

Archery, Acting and Adventure are coming your way over April’s School Vacation.  April 19-23!  (If you received a flyer, the date may be wrong)

Archery lessons will be provided by A.T. and Lisa from Archery Addictions in Pennsylvania.  They have a traveling Archery Range and bows in all sizes, ready for campers to learn to shoot straight and true!  A.T. and Lisa participated in the bear hunt at Lugdon Lodge last fall.  Marion learned about the innovative program they run in PA where they bring their range to schools for children to learn about responsible handling of bows.  Anyone who knows Marion, knows she always gets her way!  So, A.T. and Lisa agreed to come North with their range for our campers!!  You can see more about their program for school age children here www.archeryaddictions.com

As for Acting Variety Show Thursday evening put on by campers will be facilitated by Ben, a member of Children’s Stage Adventure.  Ben directed Androcles and the Lion with Children’s Stage Adventure during Acting Out at Lugdon Lodge last summer.

Adventures will depend on weather.  But, with about a BAZILLION years combined experience entertaining children during school, phys. ed class, and adventure camps, Marion and the Lugdon Lodge staff will be ready with weather appropriate activities, indoor and as much as possible OUTDOOR!!!  You can be assured there will be campfires, s’mores and many memories to last a lifetime for all campers!

The overnight adventure costs $250.  Daycampers pay just $150 and provide their own transportation.  We may be able to help facilitate some carpooling though.

Maine’s Black Bear Hunt is in Jeopardy

There is a movement to ban the 3 most effective ways to hunt bear in Maine. In fact it looks like this referendum will go before voters November of 2014. Those in favor of the ban could take away our right to hunt bear over bait, to hunt bear with hounds and to trap bear. Lugdon Lodge is in favor of a humane hunt and the maintenance of a healthy bear population. The Lugdon Lodge wants to encourage voters to oppose the proposed referendum and allow our public, professional biologists to continue to manage Maine’s bear population with our nationally recognized bear management program.  We will continue to post information and links for more information. For now, you can check out the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine and the Maine Professional Guides Associations site concerning this very important issue. www.savemainesbearhunt.com
