The Wilderness Center sits in the heart of Eastern Maine’s pristine lake district, just 18 miles from Bangor with a world renowned medical facility and an airport with daily flights along the East Coast. Half way between Bangor and Bar Harbor, our Wilderness Center is within reach of five star restaurants, beautiful small town boutiques, Acadia National Park’s breathtaking ocean view hiking, countless rock climbing cliffs, and more.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our Wilderness Center provides a secluded nature retreat with all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Our 200 acre campus sits along a quarter mile of lakefront. We are the only summer camp on 2,700 acre Branch Lake. The 5,000 square foot King Dining Hall sits in the center of camp. This bright new facility is equipped with a full professional kitchen and can comfortably seat up to 230 people. The Dining Hall overlooks our lakefront grove area along with Triangle Lodge, our historic meeting hall. Our modern infirmary provides all needs for camp health care, as well as heated living quarters and an apartment for seasonal use.

Most guests and campers stay in our fifteen cabins, all of which have electricity and sleep up to sixteen people. Campers utilize our two bathhouses with six toilets and showers in each. With hiking trails, campsites, sports fields, an outdoor chapel, a state of the art ropes course, and over thirty boats, our facility is the perfect location for all groups.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan offers three primary summer programs: Sleep Away Camp for boys and girls ages 8-15, Adventure Seekers Trips for boys and girls ages 8-18, and Leaders School for teens in Middle School and High School. All program details can be found in our downloadable program guide at Our Camp Website Link: www.campjordan.org.

SLEEP AWAY CAMP
Sleep Away Camp is the perfect introduction for children ages 8 to 15 into the Wilderness Center’s summer camp programming. Keenly aware of the different stages of youth development, our program provides age appropriate activities to foster self-exploration, challenge, and achievement. Our Sleep Away program serves a highly diverse camper population, giving campers an opportunity to live and connect with children from various countries and cultures. At Sleep Away Camp, children embark on a personal quest, enjoying activities of their choice from water sports, our adventure ropes course, crafts, performing arts, target shooting, field sports, and more.

ADVENTURE SEEKERS
The Adventure Seekers Program is a wilderness expedition program for campers looking for an exciting, elevated camp experience. Expeditions may include mountain biking, rock climbing, backpacking, spelunking, paddling, whitewater rafting, wilderness survival and more. Adventure Seekers will explore the best of the Maine and New Hampshire wildernesses on trips specially designed for different ages and abilities. All trips are led by Wilderness First Responders and Outdoor Specialists. The trips have been developed by Jeremy Robichaud, our Director of Adventure Recreation. He is a Registered Maine Guide, a Wilderness EMT, a Nationally Registered EMT, a Level II Project Adventure Instructor, and an instructor for SOLO Wilderness Medical School. Jeremy is a professional rock climbing guide and instructor, who is licensed by both the American Mountain Guide Association and the Professional Climbing Instructors Association.

LEADERS SCHOOL
Through group problem-solving competitions, intense physical challenges, unique traditions, and guided reflection, Leaders School helps shape teens into leaders. This is a pedal-to-the-metal week of excitement, formulated by experts in the field of experiential learning and group development. Leaders are pushed to their limits, encouraged to “slay their dragons”, and make connections from their Leaders School experience to their everyday lives. Graduates of this program become charged with a greater sense of self-worth, purpose, and obligation to improve the world around them.

Leaders School relies upon a perpetually-changing but time-tested model of outdoor adventure-education to push kids to explore their physical and mental limits, all the while maintaining a fun and supportive atmosphere that emphasizes “Challenge by Choice”. The two one-week programs are divided by age group between middle school and high school, and are primarily run at the Bangor Y’s Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan. At the core of the Leaders programming, however, are its “Challenge Days” expeditions that take campers all over the state. Young leaders can paddle canoes or kayaks along Moosehead Lake and the Penobscot or St. Croix rivers, sea kayak in Casco Bay, mountain bike through Acadia National Park, go rock climbing in Clifton, or hike Mt. Bigelow or Katahdin. Through introspection and experiential learning in a safe but challenging outdoor environment, leaders learn about themselves while gaining an appreciation for Maine’s natural treasures.

While at Leaders School, teens are challenged by Low and High Ropes Course elements to strengthen self image and build team skills. In addition to more standard classes such as archery, riflery and orienteering, leaders can also participate in Traveling Minstrels (music), Teen Talk (discussions about issues that affect youth), and Energy Infusion Theatre (performing arts). Campers build communication skills, develop teamwork, learn the dynamics of a group, discover themselves and shape goals for the future. The Bangor YMCA Leaders School program has graduated more than 4,200 young leaders in its 41 year history. The relationships and skills they build at Leaders School remain a part of their lives forever.

THE BANGOR YMCA WILDERNESS CENTER AT CAMP JORDAN offers so many choices all summer long, and the common thread is that every program will bring incredible growth, skills, friendship, and fun. Set on a 200 acre campus along the shores of Branch Lake in the beautiful Maine wilderness, our Sleep Away Camp, Adventure Seekers, and Leaders School give boys, girls, and teens of all ages and interests a sense of adventure, belonging, and purpose. These programs allow a child to progress and grow each year in our specially designed age appropriate adventures. Our goal is to partner with parents throughout their child’s life.

The Bangor YMCA’s Wilderness Center provides an idyllic group of resources in which to explore opportunities for personal growth and the enhancement of outdoor skills. The bedrock of our philosophy focuses on the value of experiential learning and encourages self-discovery through the wonders of the Maine environment.

The Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan has been fostering friendships, changing lives, and creating leaders for 106 years. We have established traditions and purposeful programming that encourages character building and leadership skills through the core values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility. Everyone is encouraged to take these life lessons home and contribute to their own families and communities.

Our programs are formulated to reflect the appropriate challenges of each stage of child development. As youth grow and gain a sense of comfort within our programs, they are encouraged to try new activities and new programs to gain a sense of challenge and mastery. Often children who begin with our Sleep Away Camp rise through the ranks, challenging themselves physically on Adventure Seekers expeditions as they grow older, moving on to our LIT and CIT programs, and capping each summer as a teenager with the Leaders School experience. Our programs for older teens bridge the gap between finding one’s personal strength and being a responsible member of a home community. Our Wilderness Center’s camper diversity brings this conversation globally and fosters discussions among tomorrow’s leaders from around the world.

The cabin group is the heart of our program, and we have recently made our cabin groups smaller to foster a closer bond between counselors and cabin-mates. Cabins eat together during each meal, participate in cabin challenges together, and spend “embers”, a time of reflection, sharing their day around a candle every night before bed. Veteran campers think of camp as their second home, a place where they feel appreciated, accepted for who they are, and at peace with themselves. It is our goal that every child develops this sense of connection with our community and our program.

ACCREDITATION: We are accredited by the American Camp Association, ensuring that we hold ourselves to the highest industry standards. The camp complies with all regulations of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services.

At the Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan, we pride ourselves on providing a staff that live out the YMCA core values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility. Every staff person receives extensive training, preparing them to provide the best possible physical and emotional environment for your child. All counselors are First Aid and CPR certified, and we employ two live-in health professionals and have an MD on call for reference to ensure that every camper’s medical needs are met at all times. A Licensed Clinical Social Worker visits us regularly to communicate with staff about their campers’ experiences and challenges.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: LEADERS SCHOOL
The Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan's Leaders School is one of the most profound leadership development programs in the Northeast.

The relationships and skills they build at Leaders School remain a part of their lives forever.

LIT/CIT
The Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan's LIT and CIT programs culminate the Sleep Away Camp experience. They provide teens with a strong set of skills they can use as future camp counselors and leaders in their communities. Our teen leadership development programs are some of the most comprehensive of their kind. Sixteen year olds begin with a two-week LIT program, which focuses on skill acquisition, team-building, personal development, goal setting, and community service. The CIT program is geared toward 17 year olds who aspire to work in childcare and continue as a leader at camp. During this three week program, participants learn the skills needed to care for children in a camp setting, develop interpersonal relationships, and work alongside members of the camp staff. Additionally, CITs will earn certifications in CPR and First Aid.

Many LIT and CIT participants were former campers who return to become volunteers and staff members, thus providing the legacy of energy and talent that has preserved more than 106 years of Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan tradition.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Skylemar was founded in 1948 by Lee Horowitz and Herb Blumenfeld. Summer camp brought them together, with Lee serving as Herb’s counselor. From that moment on, as they say, “the rest is history”. An enduring, 60-year friendship was formed, and with it, a committed desire to create an environment which would foster, nurture, and cultivate the same type of life-long relationship that they had experienced.

Herb and Lee set the standard for comradeship. They developed boys of character through a sports-oriented program which emphasized kindness. Their formula was magical: Bring young boys together with collegiate role models in a pristine location, offer outstanding instruction and team play, and focus on lifetime lessons of compassion, friendship, independence, leadership and appreciation.

Today, Directors Shep and Arleen Shepherd (Lee's Daughter) are completely committed to each individual camper. Along with Assistant Director George Simeon and the Senior Staff of teachers and coaches, they never lose sight of the fact that parents have entrusted Skylemar with their most precious possession. The leadership team of Skylemar does everything in their power to see that each child has a safe, fun and wholesome summer experience.

Giving a child the opportunity to experience sleepaway camp is one of the most influential gifts a parent can bestow. No doubt, it’s a tremendous leap of faith to entrust your son to others. At Skylemar, we cherish the honor of a summer with your child, and do everything we possibly can to give him a safe, great experience of a lifetime. Each summer, boys from across the U.S. and abroad become life-long friends at Skylemar. Our spirit of friendship and kindness connects everyone at camp. Camp Skylemar is an ACA accredited camp.

TYPE OF CAMP: Day Camp.

CAMPER GENDER(S): All Boy Campers.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Travel, Sailing, Adventure, Wilderness/Nature, Waterfront/Aquatics, Video/Filmmaking/Photography, Fine Arts/Crafts, Theater, Soccer, Tennis, Swimming, Volleyball, Basketball, Baseball, Football, Team Sports, and more. Archery, Boating & Canoeing, Campcraft, Radio, Riflery, Windsurfing, Journalism & Woodworking

CAMP LOCATION: On the shores of six-mile long Echo Lake and among 100-year-old pine and hardwood trees, Winnebago sits nestled within a breathtaking landscape on 400 acres of land. Located in Fayette, Winnebago is located 17 miles from the capital of Augusta, 75 miles from Portland and a three-hour drive from Boston.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our facilities are modern yet not flashy. Campers live in one of 34 comfortable screened cabins. The younger boys generally have 6 boys and 2 counselors in a cabin while the majority of boys have 4 or 5 campers and 1 counselor per cabin. There is no shortage of places to go and explore at camp. We have more than 65 buildings and campers easily find what interests them.

Many of the activities including Photography (outfitted with a fully-equipped darkroom), Nature, Arts & Crafts, and Video are housed in their own buildings. We also have our own radio station and a wonderful theater. Several large buildings allow for the entire camp to convene, and we even have a Ping Pong building where boys can play in their free time.

Meals are enjoyed in our spacious dining hall, one of the original camp buildings, which features a lofted ceiling and fieldstone fireplace. Our athletic facilities are top-notch. We have more fields than we can use at one time and count 7 Har-Tru tennis courts, 3 softball/baseball diamonds, 2 basketball courts, 2 soccer fields, a clay and a beach volleyball court, and a sprawling low and high ropes course.

Our waterfront features a beach area where boys can play, a shallow water area for teaching beginner swimmers, a six-lane floating pool built into the lake, a deep water area with a high dive and waterslide, and a separate dock system that accommodates our sailing, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing and waterskiing programs.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Winnebago walks a fine line between creating a competitive atmosphere and understanding that success lies in the effort a camper gives rather than the outcome. As society becomes more results focused, we continue to insist on the process. Yes, Winnebagans do achieve extremely high results. However, boys understand that being supportive of each other is what makes a lasting difference � a difference that helps foster leadership and builds emotional and physical self-confidence.

The Winnebago program affords campers an opportunity to gain skills (and confidence) in a broad range of activities; many of which they would not necessarily have access to at home. Campers enjoy athletic instruction and competition (amongst each other and other camps) in a variety of sports that include baseball, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, street hockey and tennis. Campers swim twice daily, build skills in a number of other more individual activities such as archery, sailing, video, drama, photography and waterskiing, and explore the beauty of Maine on both day and overnight camping trips.

Our trip program is outstanding. Each age group embarks on two overnight camping trips each summer � usually one canoeing and one hiking. The trips are thoughtfully planned out to appropriately challenge boys in a safe yet meaningful way. Most campers return from their trips emboldened by their efforts and with a sense of accomplishment.

Campers and alumni consistently remark that experiences on trips are some of their most profound memories. Wherever Winnebagans go during the summer, people remark how nice, thoughtful, interested and interesting they are. This is a product both of who the campers are and of the culture we create at camp � a culture where boys understand that being nice and respectful to one another is important and easy.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: The Winnebago Alumni Association (�WAA�) provides the opportunity for boys to attend Winnebago who do not have the financial resources to attend Camp Winnebago. The WAA brings alumni together and commits to provide the financial assistance for a multi-year experience. The Alumni Association helps select those boys who will benefit from its scholarship programs. - See more at: Our Camp Website Link: campwinnebago.com
