Built on a model of other successful Trout Unlimited youth programs around the country, Maine Trout Unlimited Trout Camp is
dedicated to educating youth about our cold-water fisheries.
This year's camp week is Sunday June 25th to Friday the 30th.

Our mission is to build tomorrow’s conservation leaders, giving teens a solid foundation in conservation, entomology and
biology, while keeping it fun and interesting with fly-fishing.

After 13 very successful Maine TU Trout Camps' since 2004, we have again chosen Evergreens Campground, Solon on the banks of the Kennebec River for our
location. Its rustic but comfortable cabins provide a true Maine camp experience while offering the comforts of home.

A written essay by the student applicant about why he/she would like to attend the camp and what they hope to get from it.
A recommendation for the applicant from their current teacher or student counselor on school letterhead,including the address and phone number of the teacher or
student counselor.
All applicants must be age 13 through 17 as of April 15, 2017 and all applications must be postmarked by April 15, 2017

For more information visit our website:

I think the members here should sponsor a camp member by offering up a FFIM scholarship. I'll pledge the first $25 with a goal of $450 to cover the cost. Who's next?

We'll join in with a donation of $100. A great opportunity to continue the legacy of the sport.

I'll see your $25 Ken! Where do I send it?
Hoping my two kids will attend when they get old enough (not in a hurry for that though).

Awesome jon! Paying it forward! Love it!

I believe there's an address on the http://www.troutcamp.org web site. Attach a note that says you're a proud member of FFIM and want to help the next generation of flyfishermen (and women).

Thanks,

Ken

Thanks to all of you that have donated so far! We've got another $200 to go and I'm sure with 3000 listed members that we can get there. $10, $15, $25...the amount doesn't matter as any but will help.
