Memories of time on Thompson Lake are precious. The lake provides an opportunity to relax, reflect, and enjoy the stunning natural surroundings. Your Sea Bag purchase will help support the Agassiz Village program, where campers do just that - enjoy joyful time away from challenging environments back home. Last summer, nearly 23% of campers registered as homeless or in the foster care system. This isn’t everyday life for our campers – this is a gift.


Agassiz Village is a nonprofit that provides opportunities for children in underserved communities from across the Northeast. For 88 years, our 330-acre overnight summer camp on Thompson Lake in Poland, Maine, has provided a unique learning program that challenges kids to discover interests, uncover new skills, make lifetime friendships, and connect with inspiring mentors. The skills kids learn at camp and through our year-round THRIVE high school program, help them thrive in school, college, and beyond.


Agassiz Village was honored to work hand-in-hand with the team at Sea Bags to create this one-of-a-kind bag design. Each Sea Bag is made right here in Portland, Maine, and is designed, sewn, and finished by skilled Maine craftspeople. The care that goes into each bag is evident and each one is durable, water-resistant, and ready for a new life of adventure. Because each bag is made from a recycled sail, the inside of your bag may have unique details like zig zag stitching, maker’s marks, and signs of hard sailing. These facets speak to the authenticity of the company’s recycled sail products and make each bag wholly unique, which we think our Thompson Lake neighbors and friends will love and appreciate.


All orders for the limited-edition Thompson Lake Sea Bag® must be placed by midnight on Sunday, July 7, 2024. The bags will be manufactured in July and will be delivered the middle of August ($20.00 shipping fee applies) or picked up for no additional charge at Agassiz Village on Saturday, August 10 between 10:00a.m.-2:00p.m. Under "order summary" select Agassiz Village if you intend to pick up and avoid shipping fees.
