In collaboration with two area lodging establishments, Camp CaPella is able to offer families a unique opportunity to take a real vacation, something that families with a child with disabilities aren’t able to do that often. This makes it possible for families from outside of the immediate area to come to beautiful mid-coast Maine for the week while their child is also enjoying a safe week at Camp CaPella.
The elegant Lucerne Inn offers families a week’s lodging (Sunday night through Thursday night) for the incredibly low price of $350.00. Here the family can be together for the evenings, the child can attend camp during the day, while the parents can visit such places as Acadia National Park, Belfast, Camden, Rockland, Fort Knox, and the Penobscot observatory tower, go sailing on Penobscot Bay, enjoy whale watching out of Bar Harbor, go golfing, or any number of other summertime family adventures. Or – perhaps just sitting by the Lucerne Inn pool and doing nothing at all! You may contact the Lucerne Inn directly and just ask for the Camp CaPella discount package price.
The Bangor Ronald McDonald House also offers families lodging for the week if they are sending their child to Camp CaPella. The cost is only an $8.00-a-night donation. It is more community living, but nonetheless very nice – and you get to have a real break from the everyday demands of caring for a child with disabilities! Reservations for the Ronald McDonald House have to be made through Camp CaPella.
