Tanglewood 4-H Celebrating 30th Anniversary

University of Maine Cooperative Extension programs at Tanglewood 4-H Camp in Lincolnville turn 30 years old this summer and the camp staff is planning an evening of food and entertainment to celebrate.

A traditional bean hole bean supper, roast pork and a variety of locally sourced vegetarian dishes and appetizers will be served at the event, from 5-10 p.m. Aug. 25. Local musicians Just Teachers and members of the local Quasimodal Chorus singers will perform. Community members and former campers, staff and volunteers involved with Tanglewood throughout the years are expected to attend the celebration.

Tickets are $30 for adults who register early online or $40 at the door; tickets for children under 12 are $10. An online registration form is available at here.

Proceeds will support camp scholarships.

Extension’s two adventure camps and school programs at Tanglewood and at Blueberry Cove are based on “Earth Connections,” nature discovery that helps youth become creative stewards of an interconnected world. The program mission is to teach Maine youth and adults to be effective and caring stewards of the Earth through affordable environmental education and nature-based experiences.
