Summer Camp in Kentucky

We spent the morning in Campbellsville, Kentucky at the Tim Horton’s Children Foundation Camp. We worked with about 128 campers from ages 9 to 12, that attend the for a 10 day session. There are about 7 different camps, and most of them being in Canada. Campers are picked from different parts of the country, and are granted a once and a life summer camp experience. We introduced all the campers to Leave No Trace, and the importance of stewardship towards the land. We ran a couple of new activities focusing on Respecting Wildlife, and Choosing the Right Path.  We are headed to Colorado for the Gunnison River festival, and a chance to link up with Leave No Trace staff and trainers at the Lyons Folk Festival.

Happy Trails,

Alexis & Topher
