Camp Forest was awarded $1,050 in grant funding from United Mid-Coast Charities.

Beverly Stone, director of Expanding Opportunities, accepted the award from Lee Woodward on April 26. The funds will be used to provide full or partial camperships for children to attend Camp Forest during the summer of 2012.

Camp Forest is a unique wilderness day and expedition camp for children ages 7 to 17. Family expeditions and adult workshops are also offered. Camp Forest is very grateful to United Mid-Coast Charities for providing this special opportunity for Waldo County’s children.
