Outdoor Adventures

Welcome to the Youth Outdoor Adventures program. This year we will present the 12th annual event and it will be hosted at Blue Mountain Fish and Game Association in Walnutport, PA. Our mission is to introduce a variety of topics for children to do in the outdoors. We have professional instructors from a diverse group of organizations who are well educated in their topic. These educators are doing their best to teach the basics and the safety aspects in the time permitted so that students can optimize the outdoor sport or activity and are safe at the same time.

This program will take place on Saturday, June 16, 2018. An entire day of fun and education provided free to 100 children between the ages of 8-15. When we say entire day, we mean 7:00 am to approximately 5:45 pm. The children will have ten stations to rotate through, each lasting 45 minutes. Breakfast and lunch will be provided along with any materials needed at any of the stations.

This year our schedule includes fishing, casting, wilderness survival, archery, trapping, canoeing, invasive plants, BB gun range, first aid and habitat building.

The funding for this free program is paid for through fundraisers, donations and dedicated sponsors. We cannot thank enough all those who have supported us in one way or another over the past 11 years. Many thanks to each of our volunteers who dedicate their time to provide this awesome experience for our future young men and women.
