UNITY, Maine (AP) - A Maine college is looking to train the next generation of Paul Bunyans.

Unity College is seeking applications for its Lumberjack Camp, which will teach teenagers skills like log rolling and axe throwing this summer. The college says the program is designed to “showcase timber sports that are fast-faced, physical, and historically rich.”

The program is open to teenagers ages 16 through 19 and will run from July 19 to 25. College representatives say the camp will also focus on fire building, pole climbing and woodsmen skills, and will teach campers the history of logging and lumberjacking in the Northeast.

The camp has limited space and is $750 per camper. It is open to boys and girls.
