We had a great time at the Annual Bake & Festival at Camp Ker-Anna in Cumberland this past Sunday, August 3rd!  This extremely well-attended event is the only fundraiser held to benefit the Camp, which is a not-for-profit day and overnight camp for children ages 5-14.  The funds raised at this event help keep the cost low for all campers and are also used to make improvements to the Camp’s physical plant.  The day’s activities were focused around old fashioned family-fun, including games, swimming, dunk tank, penny social, raffles, and all-you-can-eat clam cakes and chowder!photo8

Camp Ker-Anna has been serving campers since 1937, welcoming generations of families to the beautiful Camp nestled in the woods in North Cumberland.  Camp Ker-Anna sits on acres of wooded landscape, and also boasts an outdoor swimming pool, several athletic fields, and a beautiful waterfront setting for canoeing, fishing, and hiking.  There are cabins for overnight campers, as well as a full kitchen/mess-hall and a large activity “hut” for indoor activities.

We are proud to be amongst the generations of families who have enjoyed spending summers at the Camp.  Maurice Loiselle was the chairman of the board of Boy Scout Troop 2, which originally leased the land back in 1937.  Bob Loiselle, his wife, and his daughters, Melanie and Brenda, also attended day and overnight camps.  Today, Melanie’s children, Mallory and Jacob, continue the Camp Ker-Anna tradition by attending the day camp for the summer.  For more information on Camp Ker-Anna, call 401-333-2286 or email daycamping@keranna.org.
