The goal of our camps is to introduce campers to outdoor educational activities that will instill an appreciation of our natural surroundings and their conservation. The Preserve hosts two summer camps for youth ages 12 - 18 to learn a variety of outdoor skills in a wilderness setting. The camps include classes like archery, fly fishing, hiking, wildlife tracking, mapping and orienteering, outdoor cooking, photography, shelter building, and other activities to enhance their enjoyment of the outdoors. Evening presentations may include topics such as mapping, astronomy, and bear awareness. During the July camp, campers have the option of going through the training and earning their Bowhunter Education Certification. Campers will learn skills such as shot placement, equipment care, tree stand set up, and safety. Just as important campers learn about the importance of ethics, wildlife and natural resources management, and the hunter's role in conservation.
