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 Tanglewood/Blueberry Cove office will be closed during this time, but our employees are still here to help.  Please contact Patti Chapman at 207.789.5868 or extension.tanglewood4h@maine.edu with any questions.

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.
