  • What's the camp schedule?
    Camp days will generally go from 9am-5pm. After that instructors are "off" for the day. There will be many deer hides worked on in all different stages throughout the week. ​ Breakfasts will be served around 9am and lunches will be served between around 1pm.
  • Does it cost money to attend?
    The camp is free to attend! But there are some associated costs. We can provide breakfasts and lunches for participants but with our current budget we need people to provide their own dinners, which is a cost. We have some budget to put towards covering some youths dinner costs. Email us to find out more. There is free camping at the park for youth participants and their pods but folks need to bring their own camping gear, which is another potential cost. We are not able to offer transportation for all participants so travel expenses are also a cost. We have some budget to put towards covering some youths transporation funds. Email us to find out more.
