2021 Camp Schedule
Dear lovers of the outdoors, campers, potential campers and cravers of oxygen and trees,
Well, we didn't quite know if we would make it, but spring is in full force here in Maine. The gardens are planted, the chickens are broody, and the bugs have emerged. You know what this means: it's almost time for CAMP! After a year-long hiatus we are ready and rearing for a wonderful summer of canoeing, backpacking, fire-making, swimming, wild edibles, and connection to the land and people on whose knowledge and relationship to nature we rely on a daily basis at Camp Forest.
We are on Wabanaki land, and during Camp Forest we will take a close look at the principles of stewardship and knowledge of the environment our Wabanaki brothers and sisters have fostered, and because of whom we still reap earthly bnenefits. We will seek out and honor ancestral knowledge of Camp Forest woods, streams, living and non-living things. We will look to a diversity of human relationships with nature to guide us as we build competency in the Maine woods.
As always, we thank you for making this possible in the lives of campers who would otherwise not benefit from this immersion in the outdoors. Help us make a difference in young nature stewards lives by offering camperships to one of the weeks of camp we offer above, starting at $225/week.
