Camp North Woods begins next week!

Camp North Woods begins next week at the Bryant Pond 4-H Camp and Learning Center!

We invite you to come spend time with campers, Bryant Pond staff and game wardens on Tuesday, July 19th from 9:00 to 3:00. To schedule a time to meet with us, please contact Corporal John MacDonald at 207-557-0818 or by email at john.macdonald@maine.gov.

Camp North Woods is a youth outreach project that began in 2015 by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife in cooperation with Bryant Pond 4H Camp and Learning Center. The Camp builds upon the momentum created by the hit TV show North Woods Law on Animal Planet. There has been a tremendous amount of support and interest as a result of the show from families in Maine and across the nation. The camp provides a unique opportunity to introduce children to outdoor recreational activities in the company of their hero game wardens seen on the show North Woods Law. Game wardens will mentor campers as they experience Maine?s outdoor opportunities in a safe and controlled environment.

The camp runs two weeks, one week for girls and another for boys. The girl?s week begins Sunday, July 17 and runs to Saturday, July 23. Boys will arrive Sunday, July 31 and will stay through Saturday, August 6. The camp will host a total of 240 children between the ages of 8 and 12 from Maine and several other states. Campers will experience shooting sports, ATV and watercraft use, water safety, fishing, archery, and many other outdoor related activities managed by the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is dedicated to providing opportunities to youth in the outdoors, where they can learn lifelong skills and the importance of sustaining Maine's natural resources. We hope to see you on Tuesday, July 19th!
