Have you ever seen a fallen log in the woods and the next time you visit, Poof, it’s gone? The Naturalist Program is your opportunity to become a forest detective and discover why and how that log disappeared. You may also try making a bug hotel, exploring the lake for macroinvertebrates, amphibians, and reptiles, or maybe your group will try some watershed games. And don’t forget about the other activities that Greenland Point has to offer like swimming, boating, shelter building, fire building, and more. Whatever the week brings it’s sure to be filled with fun. Each camper will participate in the Maine Boater Safety Program during the week and will have the opportunity to earn their boater safety certification.

In cooperation with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
