The challenge of COVID has made the Maine Youth Fish & Game Association reimagine their in-person Winter Camp by going virtually.

Every week, the Maine Youth Fish & Game Association has a new Virtual Winter Camp activity for the week for kids to get out and enjoy Maine's winter season.

Last week, the Maine Youth Fish & Game Association Facebook page set forth the activity of snowshoeing.  If the young ones didn't have snow shoes than a nature walk would due just fine.

The page encouraged parents send in a photo of their kids taking part in the week's activity.  Not only would a few of the photos be featured on the Facebook page but all photos submitted will be in a drawing for one lucky kids to win a lifetime fishing license.

You may have even seen the story featured on WABI-TV 5 last week.

The event is open to all children 15 years of age and under.

On Sunday, the Facebook page posted an array of photos that were sent in of all kinds of kiddos out in nature with their snowshoes on.  They stated that received over 100 submissions from children all over the State of Maine.

The program is planned to continue into February, when a winner will be chosen for the lifetime fishing license.

On Monday, January 11th, the Maine Youth Fish & Game Association will post a new Virtual Winter Camp activity for your kiddos to participate in and have fun with in our Maine winter outdoors.

The Facebook posts tell those that want to submit need to send your submissions to Adam.Regan@maineyouthfishandgame.org.  Lookout for the latest activity and when to your next picture is due in by visiting Maine Youth Fish & Game Association on Facebook.
