Teen Leadership Camp extends UMFK contract

CARIBOU, Maine — Aroostook Teen Leadership Camp has extended its contract with the University of Maine at Fort Kent through 2024. 

The campus will host the 34th ATLC July 26-30. Focused on leadership development and drug prevention to teens currently in grades 6-8 in Aroostook County, ATLC is a program of Aroostook Mental Health Services Inc. 

“UMFK began hosting ATLC’s summer camp in 2018 and we have found it to be a great fit,” said Amber Stedt, prevention coordinator. “The campus provides the right amount of space — access to small and large classrooms and easy access to “the Quad” for all of our teambuilding and outdoor activities. Campers stay in the college’s dormitories and eat meals in the cafeteria. The staff is great and willing to accommodate the many needs associated with a very busy week.”

Scott Voisine, UMFK’s dean of community education, stated, “Our campus has fully enjoyed welcoming ATLC to UMFK for the past two summers and our new five-year contract will ensure a continued relationship with the program.  Having so many young and energetic youth leaders from all over Aroostook County on our campus for such a stellar program is something everyone on campus looks forward to. These kids are our future leaders and we appreciate the opportunity to be part of their development.”

The deadline for this year’s camp registration is Thursday, April 9. Information is available in all County middle schools or by calling 207-498-6431 or emailing Stedt at
