Welcome to Life in Washington County

Hello Everyone!
Welcome to Life in Washington County, I have just spent a night at Greenland Point Center in Princeton, for the Washington County Leadership Institute what a beautiful fun time!
Greenland Point is a camp for children and adults located in Washington County, let me tell you about Greenland Point Center is open year-round and provides opportunities for environmental and outdoor education. Situated on a 64-acre peninsula which extends into Long Lake, the peninsula is covered with a forest abundant with wildlife, moose and deer are often spotted during walks along our trails. It also has a an area that provides for boating, swimming and fishing activities. Several miles of hiking trails connect the property, providing hours of natural forest experience and allowing access to the wilderness campsites. There are two outdoor sports areas for archery, volleyball, softball, or other group sports. The camp has twelve log or wood-framed cabins that blend into the forest and provide accommodations for sleeping or other activities. Each cabin is furnished with bunkbeds, single beds, a table, chairs and a bureau. All cabins have electricity and some are handicapped accessible. The main lodge, also handicapped accessible, is a traditional Maine Sporting Camp style building. It houses the dining hall which seats 80, and features a  fireplace. The kitchen facility is large and well-equipped. Downstairs there is a multi-purpose class/events room and library with fireplace. There are three shower/bathroom facilities, one located on the lower level of the main lodge, and the others near the cabin circle. All have electricity and hot and cold running water. Quite the place, check it out  http://greenlandpoint.com/

So the reason I was in the woods was for Washington County Leadership Institute…. Its not the kind of leadership institute like you’re thinking this make you think outside the box and appreciate all that we have in Washington County.
