Maine Sporting Camp Heritage Foundation

to preserve Maine’s sporting camps and the natural resources they rely upon so that future generations will continue to have access to some of Maine’s most wild and scenic locations, and will be able to enjoy the special outdoor heritage and recreation experiences that Sporting Camps offer.

The Foundation achieves this through educating the public about Maine’s sporting camp heritage and their surrounding natural resources; building coalitions to support conservation of the natural habitats and wildlife depended upon by sporting camps; and providing marketing and business assistance, grants, and “patient capital”, in order to restructure the economics of Sporting Camp operations.

An important outcome is the strengthening of local economies that depend on the continued operation of one or more traditional sporting camps. In addition, further economic deterioration and increased unemployment in the communities whose economies depend to a large extent on visitors to these traditional Maine sporting camps will be limited.
