The Aroostook Teen Leadership Camp (ATLC) program is a leadership development and drug prevention program serving Aroostook County teens in grades 5-9 in Northern Maine. Teens in grades 6th-8th attend a five-day residential summer camp program in late July, and can then participate in a variety of follow-up programs during the school year.
ATLC held an extremely successful camp of 53 campers on July 24th-28th at Northern Maine Community College in Presque Isle. Registration period for ATLC 2017 will be available in February-Stay Tuned!

ATLC OUTINGS/ Volunteer Opportunities:
We will be holding several ATLC Outings/ Volunteer Opportunities during the school year which any former camper or staff person can attend. Our first Outing will be “Caribou Marathon”, on September 18, 2016 in Caribou. If you are in the area and would like to volunteer during this huge event in some way, please mark your calendar. Permission Forms went out with September’s Newsletter and need to be back to Amber before September 9th. A final reminder letter with more details will be sent to all individuals who have turned in your permission form.
If you need community service hours for school, this would be a great opportunity for you!!!
ATLC PLANNING COMMITTEES:
There are four ATLC Planning Committees: Activities, Finance, Program, and Public Relations. Three of these committees first met in August, and the other one will have its first meeting in September. If you didn’t sign up but would like to be on a Planning Committee, e-mail Amber – it’s not too late to join!

We’re also looking for some ATLC Teens to help out as greeters and servers. E-mail Amber at if you can help – you get a free supper!
After camp ended, we sent “Parent Evaluations” out to parents of campers. The feedback from these Evaluations is really important to us. We have only received 15 Evaluations back. Please – check with your parents to see if they completed and mailed theirs. If they didn’t and still have it, ask them to do so – Thanks!
BE THE DIFFERENCE!!
