The 28th Bath Savings Paddle for Pine Tree Camp is returning, with the Hammond Lumber Company Corn Hole for a Cause tournament to kick off the weekend to raise funds for Maine children and adults with disabilities to experience freedom and independence at Pine Tree Camp.

Reggie’s River Ramblers were among 200 paddlers last year on the Kennebec River. The 28th Paddle for Pine Tree Camp will take place on June 1 (Kennebec River in Solon) and June 2 (Androscoggin River in Brunswick). This annual event raises money for Maine kids and adults with disabilities to attend Pine Tree Camp. No camper who can benefit has ever been turned away due to their ability to pay.
