Watershed Camp held in partnership between Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT) and Maine Outdoor School (MOS) is a summer day camp for youth, ages 10-13, located along the Orange River in Whiting.

Watershed Camp is centered around the discovery of the local Orange River watershed which includes miles of fresh water, marsh, and forest teeming with wildlife – the perfect setting to explore, get inspired, learn, and have lots of fun!

Through activities such as canoeing, hiking, hands-on exploration, active nature games, and mindful journaling, campers will be introduced to their local watershed and equipped with the knowledge and skills for a lifetime of scientific learning. They will also receive a first-hand introduction to the field of conservation and stewardship, while growing confidence recreating outdoors and developing a strong connection to the natural world.

Camp will be held during the week August 12-16 (with no camp on Wednesday, August 14th). This program is FREE, but there are limited spots and advance registration is required. Registration will be a lottery to give all families a fair chance at a spot in our popular camp. Registration for the lottery is open May 1st and participants will be notified by late June if they have been selected. Please note pre-registration does not guarantee a spot until you hear back with confirmation.
