At Camp Wakeela, swimming, watersports, sailing, and many other waterfront activities are just an integral part of the fun and adventure that camp-goers are treated to every camp season.
So when Camp Wakeela’s Directors decided to expand their programming options to help bolster their already enviable waterfront amenities, they tapped into the experience and professionalism of the team at Commercial Recreation Specialists
(CRS) to help them plan, design, and program the new waterfront features at the camp.
CRS worked with Camp Wakeela’s Directors to help them take advantage of the beauty and abundance of the natural resources they already had available. Namely, their existing waterfront on Little Bear Pond in Hartford, ME., to create a unique, first-class swim space using PolyDock modular floating docks. Working together, the team utilized the modularity and flexibility of the PolyDock floating dock system to create two separate swimming “cribs” at the waterfront. One crib was designed and set up as a competition-style pool that features eight swim lanes, kickboards, and starting blocks – perfect for fun, competitive swimming games and programs.
This new swim area provides Camp wakeel and its campers with all of the advantages of a natural competition pool without the costs associated with installation and traditional pool maintenance. In other words, this is a competition pool where everyone wins. With the new PolyDock installation designed and implemented by Commercial Creation Specialists, Camp Wakeela has been able to add not only a new competition pool area that can accommodate races and swim lessons for their campers, but they’ve also added opportunities for campers to fish, receive out of water instructions for watersports activities. Campers can easily access other areas of the waterfront, like the installed floating watersports features.
