Weekend on the Water
We had such at wonderful time at Camp Beech Cliff this September! Below are some of the photos that Taylor (Opt for Epic Photography) took. Enjoy and consider joining our mailing list so you'll be sure to hear about it the next time we get a day or 'Weekend on the Water' 💦

As we work to heal, uplift and reenergize Black members of the community we have again and again turned to discuss one of the greatest sources of renewal, joy and connection with all that exists - nature.
This year's inaugural Weekend on the Water, was held on June 17 and 18, was created in response to the great value we see in building opportunities for Black people and other people of color to engage and explore together in the outdoors. Activities included camping at Lamoine State Park, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, hiking, fishing and swimming.
We know the historical lack of access to beaches and public pools in this country can't be rectified in a weekend. However, we can give an introductory experience and additional long term opportunities in order to reclaim the connection to water that is part of our heritage.
Whether for the weekend or just a day, we hope you'll join us!
