Camp North Woods is an overnight camp for youth to learn lifelong outdoor skills as well as the importance of sustaining Maine’s natural resources.

Camp North Woods is hosted by the University of Maine 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Bryant Pond. Campers are mentored by staff from both the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Bryant Pond 4H Camp and Learning Center. The week is filled with hands-on experiences that may include rifle, shotgun, archery, map and compass, outdoor survival, canoe and kayak, boating safety, fishing, ziplining, climbing wall and, more!

All campers that participate in CNW will receive the opportunity to complete an ATV safety course where they will get hands-on learning to earn their ATV certification during their week at camp. This will include safe riding practices, trail etiquette, and proper maintenance of their machines for safe and reliable trips.

Because there are a limited number of spaces at camp North Woods, a chance lottery is held by the Dept. of Inland Fisheries each spring.

Bryant Pond 4-H Camp is a leader in connecting youth to the outdoors and in providing archery and firearms hunter safety camps, and other programs focused on traditional Maine outdoor activities.
