Millinocket Girls

Vinalhaven Girls



For three consecutive years, from 1995 - 1998, groups of 7th and 8th grade girls in Millinocket took a chance, tried something new, and participated in a leadership program organized by local women through Mainely Girls. With a generous grant from the Kenduskeag Foundation, the girls headed off for a three-day Outward Bound wilderness program in February (burrr!), and a two-day Outward Bound urban experience in Portland in the summer.  

Many Millinocket girls also attended the Camden Girls' Conference and the Young Feminist Conference in Boston, and, in exchange for all the fun, they agreed to help women in Millinocket design the first girls' conference in their area. Their May 1998 Girls' Conference was incredible!

The group is taking a break right now, but if you're and adult who'd like to help breathe new life into it, or you're a girl who'd like to get it going again so you can join, please call Mainely Girls at (207) 230-0170, or e-mail us at
