Basin Harbor welcomes back our returning guests on this lovely July day. The Ardrey Family is here from Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts for a fine gathering, and Ms. Marianne Centrella arrives today from Mansfield, MA. Welcome back! Basin Harbor also welcomes Molly Post fresh off the plane from Madrid, Spain, here to join her lovely family for the rest of the week. A special “Happy Birthday” goes out to Ryan Maresca, who is turning 12 years old today. We hope you have a most wonderful birthday here at The Harbor, full of creemees and cake!
We are delighted to host the Must Family this week, as they gather at the Harbor to enjoy fine company and fine surroundings. BHC also wishes a very “Happy Anniversary” to the Musts!
Ann-Marie will be capturing candid images today at all camps. A slideshow of this week’s candids will be running this evening in the Champlain Lounge. Our last Family Portrait Special is available tomorrow morning at the Wilderneath Garden. Please sign up with the concierge by this evening. Private Portrait Sessions are still available throughout the week.
Do you like to start your day with a serious workout in the fresh air? Look no further than the Basin Harbor grounds themselves to keep you in shape! Meet our fitness guru Scott at the Wellness Center at 7am tomorrow morning for Outdoor Interval Training, a fast-paced series of events that will take you all around BHC. If that’s not enough of a challenge, don’t hesitate to participate in Basin Harbor’s mini-Triathlon tomorrow afternoon, including a 200 yard swim across the Harbor followed by a 2.2 mile bike ride and a .8 mile run. Come join us as an individual or create a team with family and friends, and show your colors!
Hop aboard the EScape tomorrow morning and head down the shore a bit to Fish Button Bay. Our waterfront “jigging” expert Mac will show you how to catch those swimmers on the bottom with a special kind of fishing lure. Sign up with the concierge in advance.
BHC’s Got Talent! We know you have something special, so why not share it? Sign up with the Rec Staff and meet in the MDR for Talent Show Practice. Our pianist Melissa is ready to accompany you Friday night at the Talent Show.
What better way to maximize your vacation enjoyment than to sit back and enjoy a few yuks? Look no further than our very own North Dock this evening as the Vermont Comedy Club brings the state’s most hilarious stand-up comedy to Basin Harbor. The show is for audiences age 18 and up, and a cash bar will be available.
