As a part of the state’s Roadmap to Recovery plan, Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford will virtually tour NorthBay Education campus south of North East, Md., on June 24, 2020, to officially open its modern water sports and zipline facilities for children and parents whose vacation and summer camp plans have been disrupted by the pandemic.
Beginning June 19, the camp, usually reserved for Maryland public school children, can accommodate up to 100 families per day in its spacious air conditioned cabins and hotel-style rooms. Among the many on-site activities at its 90-acre site on the Chesapeake Bay are zip lines designed for both children and adults, rock climbing walls, wildlife exploration, family team building, arts and crafts, bonfires, kayaking, tubing and a variety of water sports, plus swimming or relaxing at both the Bay and the camp’s Olympic, waterfront pool.
The camp, nine miles south of NorthEast, Md., and just 15 minutes from I-95, was built as a partnership by the State of Maryland and the non-profit Erickson Foundation which was funded by Erickson Retirement Communities founder John Erickson.
