At MESSY, you'll engage in hands-on learning that is focused on environmental education, stewardship, and sustainability. You will have the opportunity to work alongside University of Maine at Machias faculty, actively participating in important work in the field and in the classroom. Spend time exploring coastal marine life and investigating local streams and forests to create solutions for real-world environmental problems.

This Year's Theme Is: The Science of Myth & Fantasy!

Some of the activities campers will participate in this year include...
+ Create a mysterious labyrinth
+ Watch seals and learn about seal myths
+ Learn how trees speak to one another
+ Build ents and fairy gardens
