A message from UMaine’s 4-H Centers to our hundreds of business partners, school groups and camper families:
Effective Thursday, March 19, 2020:
In an effort to ensure the health and safety of the community, and to help stem the spread of the coronavirus, all offices of the UMS system, including this office of the UMaine Cooperative Extension will be working remotely until May 17, 2020 (when another determination will be made). The Bryant Pond registration office will be closed during this time, but our employees are still here to help.
Please reach out one of our registration specialist at email@example.com or leave us a message at 207.665.2068 with any questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you.
As we navigate the current public health situation, UMaine Cooperative Extension is following guidance from the University of Maine, the UMaine System and the State of Maine CDC in taking precautions to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our staff and clients.
Given that, we are canceling or rescheduling much of our spring programming (between now and May 12) for schools and other client groups at our 4-H Camp and Learning Centers at Blueberry Cove, Bryant Pond, Greenland Point, and Tanglewood. We will re-assess the situation daily and update our status with the best information available to us.
At this time, we are accepting registrations and anticipating a fantastic summer camp season at all four of Maine’s 4-H Camps.
For questions regarding cancellations or enrollment for summer camp, please reach out to the staff at the appropriate 4-H Camp.

For over 50 years the University of Maine 4-H Camp & Learning Center at Bryant Pond (formerly the Maine Conservation School) has strengthened children’s relationship to the natural world with a combination of inspired outdoor fun, practical woods-wise skills, and “hands-on” conservation education. Helping young people learn to take care of our natural world and themselves when they are in it are our most important goals.
