Rangeley Guides and Sportsmen’s Association Junior Guides program begins July 8

OQUOSSOC — The Junior Guides Summer Program, for ages nine through 11, is still accepting registrations.
The program runs for six consecutive Mondays starting July 8. Participants meet 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Monday at the Rangeley Guides and Sportsman’s Association Clubhouse on Old Skiway Road in Oquossoc.
The program explores the habitat of Maine’s native animals, offering hands-on exploration of tracks, skulls, jaws, teeth and pelts. Experts will mentor the group in the art of fly tying and fly casting. Canoe safety and paddling is offered. Basic archery instruction is provided. Map and compass skills are also covered.
Space is limited. Since each week’s activities build upon the previous week, preference is given to participants who are able to attend all six weeks of the program.
This program is free, but pre-register is required by contacting Joyce Fay at 207-864-2651.
