0

BRYANT POND — Camp North Woods will again be held at and hosted by the University of Maine 4-H Camp and Learning Center at Bryant Pond. Camp staff and instructors will include Maine game wardens, Fisheries and Wildlife biologists, recreational safety coordinators, information and education staff as well as staff from Bryant Pond.

A co-ed overnight camp for children ages 9 to 11 will be held July 15 to 20, and a co-ed overnight camp for children ages 11 to 13 is planned for July 29 to Aug. 3.

Because there are a limited number of spaces at Camp North Woods, a chance lottery will be held on Wednesday, April 11. Campers may enter the drawing for a chance to attend Camp North Woods if they have not attended camp before and will be at least age 9 by July 15 and no older than 13 on Aug. 3. Each child may enter the drawing once.

The entry fee is $5 and proceeds will support the camp. Residents and nonresidents may apply and lottery winners will be composed of 70 percent Maine residents and 30 percent nonresidents, and 50 percent boys and 50 percent girls.

If selected in the lottery, the registration fee is $435 for Maine residents and $635 for nonresidents and includes meals, lodging and instruction for the week.

The deadline to apply for the lottery is 11:59 p.m. Friday, April 6.
