“If you don’t like the weather in Maine…wait five minutes”
All Mainers know that you just can’t count on our weather to stay the same for any reasonable period of time. That’s why we will always try to run the majority of our activities as scheduled, rain or shine, warm or cold.
*Be sure to check the cold weather packing list at the bottom of this schedule.*

DRESS FOR SUCCESS!
This means something a little different here in Maine. Having fun outside during the colder months in Maine is easy. Just remember, “Mainers don’t believe in bad weather…just bad clothing.” So, come prepared and enjoy the Maine outdoors!

• Always dress in layers…you can always take it off if you get too warm but you can’t put in on if you didn’t bring it!
• Long underwear, wool blend socks, and moisture wicking materials go a long way for your core layer.
• Warm boots, gloves, hats, and scarves are key to extending your outdoor playtime. Be sure your boots and gloves are waterproof if you like being dry!
• Your outer layer should be waterproof and breathable. This includes pants! Rain pants and snow or ski pants are crucial if you really want to have fun and enjoy all of Maine’s moods.
• Fleece makes for a great layering garment because of its light weight and warm characteristics.
Don’t forget a good umbrella. You only have to use it once to be worth its weight in gold.
