Solar Energy

Wyonegonic Camps solar energy Fronius Revision EnergyIn celebration of Earth Day 2012, here is a shout out from an Alumnus of the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont. The school’s Aiken Center Building is well on the way to achieving a LEED Platinum rating. It was through a Rubenstein School  newsletter, that I learned what company was contracted for the solar energy improvements incorporated into the Aiken Center.

When I was referred to a partnering company here in southern Maine, a perfect storm type of opportunity was presented. The outcome is that Revision Energy recently completed a photo voltaic 17.5 kilowatt energy generating system for our Camp Dining Hall. This should cover 110% of the annual energy demand for the building. We have added a Sustainability page to our website where you can view the daily production of our system.

As Wyonegonic prepares for it’s 111th summer, our solar panels are already hard at work. Our commitment to “green initiatives” ties to our sustainability pledge made as members of Maine Summer Camps. Thanks Rubenstein School! Steve Sudduth

Wyonegonic mentioned on the floor of Congress!

Wyonegonic is honored to have been recently mentioned on the floor of the House of Representatives. Representative Pingree of Maine recognized the 150th Anniversary of Camping on September 13, 2011. Wyonegonic, founded in 1902, was highlighted as a pioneer for girls camps, remaining the the oldest continually run camp for girls in the country.  Please read the Congressional Record and help us spread the word!

Storm Update

Storm Update: Family Campers departed Sunday morning and our staff are all fine. No power in Denmark at the moment. If you try to call camp you may or may not get through and we have no answering machine. Please send messages via email [email protected] and we will respond once we have power back on! If urgent email [email protected] and I will try to help you from Mass.

Our Wyo family camp staff and work crew did a great job prepping for Irene by getting boats inside, taking tents down and getting property and equipment ready for high winds.  They then had a slumber party at Carol’s farmhouse to ride out the storm.  Thanks again to our wonderful staff who were here to help!  The horses are all fine too – they depart for the winter homes this week.  We are cleaning up today – some trees down on roads but so far reports are that things are fine in camp.  We’ll keep you posted. Thanks everyone & Kiyi!
