Learn skills for the Junior Maine Woodsman Badge. Experience a week in the woods enjoying the basics of outdoor living: building shelters, cooking outdoors, developing mapping skills, treating advanced first aid issues (fainting, stomach aches, sprains), developing an awareness and appreciation of the outdoors, and perfecting their water-based skills: canoe paddling, fishing, fish identification, and more. There is a required sleepover for this week if you are working on your badge. Although the Junior Maine Woodsman is for campers 9-12 this day camp week is open to youth ages 7-17.
Camp Forest participates with the State of Maine’s Junior Maine Guide Program. Once Campers have developed sufficient skills, those ages 14 – 18 can take the test for their Junior Maine Guide from the State of Maine during Maine Guide Testing Week.
