Help the Maine Appalachian Trail Club setup basecamp for the Maine Trail Crew – Lunch will be provided!

May 12

In 2022, the Maine Trail Crew will dispatch from a temporary basecamp at Lake George Regional Park (West Side), in Skowhegan, Maine. MATC needs your help setting up tent platforms and tents, living space, gear and equipment, and with landscaping and light carpentry! This is a temporary basecamp as we begin construction of the Maine Trail Center. Please bring water, gloves, and dress appropriately for the weather.

We are also looking to furnish this space so that the crew is comfortable between work  “hitches” on the Appalachian Trail.  At Lake George, the crew can rest, reorganize gear and supplies, greet and orient new volunteers. Please consider donating your lightly used furniture.  Thank you!

Maine Trail Crew Wish List:

  • Couches (2-3)
  • Comfortable lounge chairs (2-4)
  • Coffee tables (2-3)
  • Folding tables (2-4)
  • Desk (one)
  • Free standing cabinets (2-3)
