Summer Day Camp is over for 2012.  Season extenders will go on for the entire month of October. This provides opportunities for home schoolers, teachers in public school and individual campers to continue their education until hunting season begins.

This summer Nick was awarded the FIRST EAGLE BADGE! This represents acquisition of a series of difficult skills.  The camper works on these skills for several years. They include: constructing a water and mosquito-proof shelter; identifying 20 plants, advanced knife safety, bow drill or hand-drill fire, cooking a meal outdoors with metal pots and a small wild meal w/ bowls and baskets, demonstrate 10 knots & make cordage,  making baskets, demonstrating skill with map and compass, tracking in the wild, showing advanced respect of the human community and advanced respect of all life.

Congratulations NICK!
