A message from UMaine’s 4-H Centers to our hundreds of business partners, school groups and camper families:
Effective Thursday, March 19, 2020:
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 call the staff at the appropriate 4-H Camp.

To contact the University of Maine 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Greenland Point Office:
For over 50 years the University of Maine 4-H Camps & Learning Centers have strengthened children’s connections to the natural world through a combination of camps and school programs state wide. These programs are designed to inspire outdoor fun, practical woods-wise skills, and “hands-on” conservation education. Through these connections, we feel that we are making a positive impact in youth development by creating a deepening respect for our natural resources. Participants may learn a new outdoor skill or activity that will increase their awareness and understanding of ways that we can live fulfilling lives and make sound choices while doing the things that we enjoy!
With leadership and support from the University of Maine 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Bryant Pond, Maine 4-H Foundation, UMaine Extension Washington County, and through strong partnerships with long time conservation supporters, we are excited to extend our programming to the Princeton location. Our goal is provide exceptional experiences for the next generation with consistent programming quality and delivery, improvements to the facility, and gained trust within our community. Our commitment to the young folks and families in this region is to offer affordable programs that engage and incite a passion for the outdoors as well as building friendships and connections within their communities.
We look forward to exceeding your expectations!
