78 Year Old Traditional Summer Camp Combines Fun with Environmental Activities

(Moultonborough, NH – February 5, 2014)

Camp Quinebarge, a traditional co-ed summer camp for 100 great kids aged 7-15 located on over 65 acres of idyllic woodland and 1,250 feet of pristine Lake Kanasatka in the heart of New Hampshire's mountains and Lakes Region, is pleased to announce its 2014 rates and dates.  We’re offering an amazing First Time Camper rate of 50% off the first two-week session, just $600 per week for overnight campers, and each additional week costs $500. Please act now because families who receive discounts must be paid in full by March 15, 2014. The 2014 camp season runs from June 29 - August 16.

Part of the Carbonfund.org Foundation's mission is education; acquiring Camp Quinebarge extended that mission in a unique way by offering the additional dimension of an environmental learning center on top of the camp's already long and storied tradition.

Quinebarge offers a plethora of activities both indoors and out including popular sports like archery. All of the activities focus on nature and the environment such as swimming, boating, horseback riding, hiking, camping, arts and crafts, a ropes course and a zip line. Camp Quinebarge also serves up time-honored camp fare like camp fires, sing-a-longs, all-camp capture the flag and even some of their own homegrown traditions.

Founded in 1936, Quinebarge's traditional camp experience is enhanced with environmental themes and activities that kids love.

"Camp Quinebarge offers a unique opportunity for children to truly be immersed in the environment around them," says Eric Carlson, Carbonfund.org Foundation's President, "Quinebarge harkens to a time when kids played outdoors all day, all summer.  It's a place to make memories and friends that last a lifetime and disconnect from the outside world for a few weeks."

"Quinebarge encourages campers to challenge themselves and to try new activities in a safe and supportive setting with staff helping each child grow, learn, and achieve their goals," says Camp Director Liz Schwartzer.  "A spirit of community, cooperation and respect for nature are part and parcel of our rich tradition of camp life."

Quinebarge is a traditional summer camp catering to up to 100 boys and girls ages 7-15, who live in rustic but clean (with electricity) cabins and enjoy activities such as archery, swimming, boating, horseback riding, hiking, camping, arts and crafts, sports, nature and environment, ropes course and zip line, to name but a few. There are camp fires, sing-a-longs, all-camp capture the flag and many traditions completely homegrown to Quinebarge.

Carbonfund.org is adding an environmental learning and activities aspect to Quinebarge, overlaying environmental themes throughout the regular, traditional camp activities Quinebarge already offers.

Since 1936, Quinebarge has been a great way for any kid to spend their summer. Carbonfund.org president and founder Eric Carlson went there as a child for eight summers in the 1980's and we're excited to carry on and expand the legacy of this wonderful place.
