“A life-changing youth program teaching enjoyable and healthy outdoor experiences, while fostering personal development…

The Junior Maine Guide Program is a uniquely Maine and legendary wilderness camping skills program designed to foster rewarding, enjoyable and healthy outdoor living experiences for youth ages 9 – 18. Its progressive curriculum of 15+ skillsets is aimed at not only teaching campers to be self-reliant but to cultivate their respect for the environment.

JMGs learn how to take a leading role in safe, fun and leave-no-trace trip planning, and master such skills as: axemanship, canoeing, shelter and fire building, map making and identification skills, equipment planning, food preparation, first aid, tree identification, wilderness regulations and more.” https://juniormaineguides.org/
