Transportation to and from Limestone
Campers can be either transported to Limestone by their parents/guardians, or there is a chaperoned bus available. The camp chaperoned bus travels along Route 95 stopping at designated spots between Limestone and South Portland for each camp session. Families will receive a transportation form in the spring that allows the family to indicate how a camper will be arriving and departing from camp. Families have the option of selecting the camp bus on this form. The cost to ride the camp bus is $25.00 each way. The specific stop information can be seen on online portal once a camper has applied for camp. For your reference the stops are located in South Portland, Lewiston, Augusta, Newport, Orono and Houlton.

Winners
Winners will be announced in April 2017. For students who don’t win the full scholarship but would still like to attend the camp MSSM is offering financial aid (conditions apply).
