Junior Maine Guide Program
The Junior Maine Guide Program (JMG) is a joint effort of Maine Summer Camps and the Maine State Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife.
Established in 1937 by the Maine State Legislature, the JMG Program is an outdoors skills program for youth ages 9-18. It promotes the use of the Maine wilderness for recreation and environmentally responsible land use practices. JMG certification lays the groundwork for later training and certification for a Maine Trip Leader permit, but also provides skills for a lifetime for outdoors enthusiasts. Using current philosophies in outdoor living, the program is unique to Maine and is offered by various Maine summer camps. Learn more here.
