In the fall of 2018, the Greenland Point Center was purchased by the Maine 4-H Foundation. Through this purchase, and a lease agreement with the University of Maine, combined with leadership from the University of Maine 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Bryant Pond, we are pleased to offer you the “University of Maine 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Greenland Point.” With the addition of Greenland Point, there are now four 4-H centers across the state that include Bryant Pond, Tanglewood, and Blueberry Cove.
Greenland Point’s programs will be similar to many of Bryant Pond 4-H Camp and Learning Center’s programs. Bryant Pond 4-H has a long-standing history and is highly respected for providing high quality conservation educational camps and school programs. Through strong partnerships with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Safari Club International, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, MidwayUSA and many conservation organizations, rod and gun clubs, and others supporters, we seek to grow these programs with the addition of the Greenland Point site. Our commitment to conservation education and the goal of reaching more youth and adults will be led by the leadership team at Bryant Pond and supported by the Washington County Cooperative Extension office. This oversight will provide a solid foundation of dedicated professionals focused on providing the highest quality, safest, and most enjoyable experience for your camper.
The mission of the University of Maine 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Greenland Point is to educate and inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to lead sustainable lives through affordable, experiential learning. This mission supports the broader mission of the UMaine Extension 4-H Youth Development Program, “to help Maine people improve their lives through education that uses research-based knowledge focused on issues, needs and aspirations.”
Greenland Point’s Guiding Principle
“The focus of our educational program is to instill in every individual an understanding of their relationship and interdependence with our natural resources, and our local communities, and to create vested civic involvement committed to sustainable lives and conservation.”
