Dear Campers, My week in August will be here soon enough. My July seems to be booked up already and it will be wonderful to come to Maine and create with you. This will be my third session as Artist in Residence in Searsport and it is easy to think of things to share as everyone has always been so open to new ideas. Although I found my work as a dental hygienist in a… Read More
Hello future hoop friends! My name is Jen Appleby and I will be bringing Wingspan Mindful Movement to Searsport Shores July 16-19th. I am a hula hoop dancer from Lisbon Falls Maine and I love helping kids and adults alike find joy in learning to hoopdance.

Greetings from Searsport Shores! Gail and I are into the second day of our residency and enjoying exploring various book art creations with campers. Today we made our first small books with accordion folds. We then spent a lot of time thinking about the covers, using recycled patterned envelopes and notan cut outs to decorate the front. Some books are already being used to capture the beauty of Maine’s coast through collaging… Read More
Searsport Shores is thrilled to be welcoming back Angelika Paul for another week this summer with Art From Scratch. Everyone had a super good time last year bouncing their very own super balls and making colorful, messy art using basic materials found in the kitchen!
Angelika will be at The Shores June 28 – July 4th
It’s so much fun to finally arrive at Memorial Day Weekend…we plan, we clean, we prepare…and then the guests arrive in magic numbers to celebrate the beginning of camping season! With the help of friends, family and dedicated staff, we’ve been able to open the park with fanfare because we’ve never looked better so early in the season. It’s a chilly 45 degrees while I write this but the beach if full… Read More
What do we do in February?…eat well, exercise and play with string.
Like anyone else in a mom and pop business, we juggle a lot of balls and are always hoping that we didn’t lose one up in the clouds or under the couch. Last Saturday I was in Augusta to be part of the Fiber College Class Jury…if you’re curious about the September classes proposed, check here. On Sunday after we notified the 2013 instructors, I travelled down to the Boston Gift Show with the… Read More
I am the outermost house, a sea-smoke messenger, quick pulse of a night blizzard, filling up the ventricles of the yard. Carol Willette Bachofner
The phone’s been unusually busy for the last few weeks…and then we figured out why…there’s a picture of one of our campsites and a mention of us in an article about Waldo County Maine…YIPPEE! Don’t get me wrong, we really like being part of a more hidden piece of the Maine Coast…but who doesn’t like to see their name in a National Magazine? If you’re into electronic versions of magazines, you… Read More
