Elko Adventure Camp #1

Our Summer Adventure Camps for 8-10 year olds kicked off in Elko the beginning of July!  This is the first of 3 Adventure Camps that will be held in Elko this summer in addition to 1 in Winnemucca. Boys and Girls explored the outdoors while learning about responsible recreation and the Leave No Trace principles, survival and camping skills, how to identify some of the local flora and fauna, and much more! The week ended with an overnight campout! All had an overall great time!

 

 

 

July 11th-14th
Elko Adventure Camp #2

Elko Adventure Camp #2 was a 4 day long day camp with one overnight trip. The week began with adventures to the California Trail Interpretive Center to learn about the travels of immigrants on the California Trail and become sworn Junior Rangers! Then to the Northern Nevada Museum to learn the story of Silver the Bald Eagle and explore the various animals displayed in elaborate scenes. Each day ended with time to reflect on their day or nature in their handmade Nature Journals. The camp ends with an overnight camping trip at Neffs Ranch, where before getting cozy in their tents, had a campfire program full of giggles and stories! Before ending their long and fun-filled week, campers were reminded of all the Leave No Trace Principles they learned during camp and how they can use them everyday!

 

 

 

 

July 18th-21st
Winnemucca Adventure Camp

With the close out of the Winnemucca Adventure Camp, 11 campers and members walked away with new lessons learned and skills acquired. The campers learned about the 7 Leave No Trace Principles, what it's like to camp as a team along with camping in general for some! Campers also learned about local wildlife, explored a local creek, and cleaned up their campsite for the next visitor. The team building, confidence, and patience learned from the camp will follow the campers into their personal lives!
