We are fortunate to have a wonderful summer camp program run by EdGE, a program of the Maine Sea Coast Mission. Hannah has been attending the EdGE after school and summer programs for years. As a rising high school freshman, this is her last year to participate in the summer camps. She attended four weeks of camp including: trails (hiking), drama, biking, and a week on the Sunbeam, the Maine Sea Coast Mission’s ship. The Sunbeam travels to nine of the coastal islands bringing medical services and ministry outreach those living on the islands.
Although I missed her immensely, she has learned so much, made friends, and created fabulous memories. Here are a few of the highlights her summer camp experience.
