Junior Maine Guide Rendezvous: Preparation for Next Week’s Test Camp

Next week, 70 youngsters attending camp in Maine will travel to the Stephen Phillips Memorial Preserve in Oquossoc, near Rangeley, for a five-day experience that could mark an accomplishment for a lifetime.

Their destination? Junior Maine Guide Test Camp, where they will take more than 20 practical and written tests. Their goal? Junior Maine Guide certification, an achievement garnered by about 2700 Maine youth since the program’s inception in the late 1930s by an act of the Maine State Legislature.

The JMG Program is a joint effort of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife and Maine Summer Camps, a membership organization of more than 120 Maine camps that supports camps, their programs and staff, and the multi-million dollar camping industry in the state. The JMG program teaches a broad range of outdoor living skills to youngsters attending camp in Maine, an effort culminating in the Test Camp held each July.
