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. You do not have to be enrolled in the Jumior Maine Guide Program to attend this Camp week.
The Junior Maine Woodsman Program requires a sleepover for this badge. We offer the sleepover as an option for this week. It is required for those who will accomplish the skills necessary for the Junior Maine Woodsman badge but others may opt to attend the sleepover as well.
The Junior Maine Woodesman badge is for campers 9-12, but 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.
