Our teen community service summer program, for boys and girls aged 14-16 and who are committed to making a difference in their communities and their own lives. Teens develop skills in self-sufficiency, leadership, and community service useful at home, in school and in any work related activity.
Live in a restored farmhouse on 17 acres of woods and fields, prepare your own meals or share them at the Hidden Valley Dining Hall, and spend time in three environments – your micro community, the camp, and the neighboring Maine towns.
Project to get involved in include:
- Develop your own camp classes and teach younger children.
- Create a demonstration wind or solar power project.
- Build a bench or a stained glass window for one of the camp’s common areas.
- Learn construction skills by building a shed from scratch.
