The FNCA is located on over 20 acres of natural pine forest bordering the Saco River. Our site is gorgeous! And our photographers love taking pictures of the beauty of Nature at the Assembly.

Due to two Nor'easters in a row, there were more pinecones on the ground when the Work Weekend crew arrived than any time even the old timers could remember. Most of the first day of Work Weekend was spent raking pinecones off the road and paths to the cabins.

Explanation: This large rock near the old rope swing was named "Bertha" way back when. Don't know by whom, but the name has stuck. Standing on Bertha with your head  above water, you could watch the ropeswingers rocket by just a few feet away.

During a huge thunderstorm one night, this large pine tree near the Bath House was struck by lightening! The lightening travelled down the trunk of the tree, leaving huge scars in the bark; then went horizontally through the ground, making a large furrow through the topsoil and pine needles. The electrical shock was felt by everyone who was awake in the nearby cabins; the jolt was felt as far away as the Main Building. The air was crackling, the electricity in it palpable, and the intensity and nearness of it made your skin prickle. WOW!

Every year when the ice on the Saco River breaks up, it is a thing of beauty. Some years, it as also a thing of danger and devastation. This particular year, the ice broke up, and then refroze several times. In the process,  large, thick chunks of ice collided and pile on top of each other and caused all sorts of damage to the banks of the river and the nearby trees.
