UMaine 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Bryant Pond to host Camp North Woods

The University of Maine 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Bryant Pond will again this summer host the Maine Department of Fisheries and Wildlife’s Camp North Woods.

Camp North Woods was established because of interest in the hit TV series “North Woods Law” on Animal Planet. Staff and instructors will include Maine Game Wardens featured on the show, fisheries and wildlife biologists, recreational safety coordinators and Bryant Pond education staff members.

At camp, youth participate in outdoor-related activities and learn how to sustain Maine’s natural resources. Girls’ camp is slated for July 17–23 and boys’ camp is scheduled for July 31–Aug. 6. Each session may accommodate 120 campers.

Because of the limited number of spaces, children may enter an online lottery once before April 29; cost is $5 and proceeds support Camp North Woods. Children must be at least 8 years old by July 17 and no older than 12 on Aug. 6. The drawing for the 240 winners will be May 9. If selected, campers will be responsible for $400 of the $625 tuition fee. For more information, email or visit the Camp North Woods website.
