Junior Maine Guides

Maine is a great outdoor state and the home of Maine Guides. There is a fine program that certifies kids as Junior Maine Guides. Kids in three age categories learn a series of skills to make them comfortable and safe in the woods.

The program is sponsored by the Maine Youth Camping Association and the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Kids can participate through a network of camps across the state.

Achieving the Junior Guide Level sets up the kid to go for his/her Maine Guide License in the future.
