Are there any special events or activities at the Park?

There are a number of special activities that take place at the Park, including:

The "Camp Seaside" program, sponsored by Freeport Community Education, provides a day camp experience at Winslow Park for over fifty Freeport children ranging in age from 7 to 10 years. Activities include arts and crafts, swimming, games, kayaking, weekly barbecues and sports.

Prior to the campground opening, the Park is host to a Girl Scout Camporee. More than 100 girls and their parents from Freeport and surrounding towns participate in this weekend event. The Scouts experience camping, wilderness cooking, kayaking, astronomy and other worthwhile activities.

The Park also sponsors Family Fun Day on a Saturday in June. The event features a 5 and 10K race, family games, and free ice cream and hot dogs. Admission to the Park on Family Fun Day is free.

During July and August, the Park sponsors a Thursday night concert series featuring local bands. Concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. Day use admission is charged, and a playground and picnic area is also nearby for use. Campers and season pass holders attend free.

The Park also hosts the Lobsterman Triathlon which features a 1.5K swim in the clean, calm waters of Casco Bay, a 40K bike along beautiful coastline and gently rolling hills and a 10K run through the Village of South Freeport. The 2012 event is scheduled for a Saturday in September.

2 weeks of free camping are scheduled for Freeport residents. For more information, see the calendar on this webpage.
