We moved to Maine for the cool weather and the beautiful parts of living in the woods. Over 100 years ago, this property was a potato farm. The trees have since taken over and we have spent the last 7 years trying to thin them down so that we will eventually be able to have strong old trees all over the farm.
We also believe that the best thing for our animals is to allow them to connect with the nature around them. In the winter we put them in more confined spaces just because we can get 4-14 feet of snow in one season and getting to their spring-fall spaces can be challenging. During the spring-fall season, the animals have much larger spaces throughout the woods and on the open land to roam. You may wake up to the call of a rooster or the grunt of a pig.
Nature is right on our front door.... literally! We have come home to bear, raccoons, and various other wild animals staring in our front door. The spaces we have set up as a campsite frequently get visited by moose and deer. We will go over with you how to be safe in animals come to check you out.
Mr. Bruce is a licensed Maine Guide and Firearms instructor with the NRA and we have been training people how to survive, hunt, and take care of themselves in the woods for years. We have recently added a professional shooting and training range to our property so you will have an opportunity to sign up for classes while you are here.
We offer courses in First Aid, Wilderness Survival, Wilderness First Aid, Firearm Marksmanship, Winter Wilderness Survival, Shelter Building, and more. We look forward to connecting with you when you book your stay so that you can choose the activities you would like to add to your stay.
Camp Sites 3, 4, and 5 are subject to change at various times of the year. These sites are reserved for our "CAN YOU SURVIVE" participants and we move the location for each guest so that you start with a fresh area.
