BRUNSWICK —  Teens to Trails, also known as “T3,” has announced the launch of the Association of Maine Outing Clubs, or AMOC.

The association is a membership organization serving Maine High School Outing Clubs and Advisors. AMOC will establish a unified network of outdoor clubs to support club advisers and promote the sharing of ideas and resources.

It will also work to establish best practices for Maine’s high school outing clubs and make an advocacy group that can raise awareness of the importance of outdoor experiences in the lives of Maine teens.

Benefits for members include discounts through many of T3 partner businesses and organizations, increased networking with other clubs, access to free and discounted outdoor adventures put together by T3 and its partners and discounted entry fee for two advisers to the first Association of Maine Outing Clubs Advisor Conference to take place at Sugarloaf on Monday, March 17.

The conference will be an opportunity for advisers to gather, network and take part in professional development sessions to optimize the programming available to their students.

Teens To Trails aspires to connect every Maine high schooler to Maine’s wilderness.
