Severe Storm Destroys Cabin At My Favorite Boy Scout Camp in Maine
As those severe thunderstorms ripped across New Hampshire and Maine on Tuesday, they left a path of devastation. One of the hardest hit spots was Camp William Hinds, in Raymond, ME.
Camp Hinds is a spot near and dear to me. I spent many summers there with my two sons as Scout Master for their Cub Scout Pack, and one summer as a camp counselor.
WMTW-TV says Tuesday's storms destroyed a cabin at a Boy Scout camp when a tree fell on it. Thankfully, no one was injured as all scouts and leaders were safely tucked away in storm shelters. This video from WMTW show the extent of the damage to the area.
Camp William Hinds has been in existence since 1927 and sits on over 300 acres of land on Panther Pond in Raymond, Maine.
