Jim Winslow - Camp Director2021 MYFGA SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION IS OPEN!!!!

MYFGA would like to welcome back Jim Winslow as our Summer Camp Director! Jim served as a counselor at our 2017 camp and we are lucky to have him at the helm as Summer Camp Director for the past three years. Jim is a 2017 graduate from UMaine and is currently a High School PE  and Outdoor Education teacher at Noble High School.  

MYFGA’s summer camp educational programming covers a variety of outdoor experiences. In the years that camp has been in operation, we have provided experiences on fishing, fly-tying, fly casting, firearm and hunter safety, archery, map and compass,
outdoor survival skills, wood burning, camp cookery, outdoor camping skills, ATV safety and operation, knots and knot tying. Additional presentations were
given in search and rescue dogs, hunting dogs, fisheries biology and fish stocking, and logging operations among many others.

MYFGA operates its Summer Camp Program for youths aged 8-15, most whom reside in Penobscot, Piscataquis and Hancock counties. Held at the Pickerel Pond facility, camp is a five-day day camp for youths aged 8-11 and a combination five-day overnight/day camp for youths aged 12-15. The weekly cost of camp remains affordable. This year costs are $150 a week for the younger children and $200 for older campers.

No child is denied an opportunity to participate because of financial need. Scholarships are available for those campers requiring financial support.
