Welcome Members and Non-Members to our link for education. This year our club will present the 10th Anniversary of Youth Outdoor Adventures. This program is free to the public and available for children of the ages 8-15. The date of this “not-to-be-missed” event will be Saturday, June 18, 2016.

This year the topics will be fishing, ethics, bait knowledge, helping wildlife, knot tying, canoe safety, archery, ice fishing, casting, and a mystery station.  The students will rotate through all stations starting at 8:00 a.m. and finishing at 5:00 p.m. Everyone starts the day with breakfast at 7:00 a.m. and then a lunch is served at 12:05 p.m. Trophies will be awarded to those fortunate fishermen and fisherwomen lucky enough to have earned one. Literature bags are distributed to each participant. All this takes place at the conclusion of the program, at approximately 5:45 p.m.  This is a day-long program filled with learning and fun!

This is a combined effort with many organizations and businesses to provide all the materials and volunteers needed to present the children with safety tips and knowledge about the outdoor activities. If you are interested in volunteering to help with this public event or would like to register students, please contact David Carl by using the contact information in this article. We will start accepting registration the beginning of March and will continue taking registrations until 100 registration spots have been filled.

If you have never had the chance to see this program up close and personal you are truly missing out on a wonderful experience. Ask anyone who has attended an event in the past and we are certain they will tell you what an experience it is! Wouldn’t you like to be a part of something this big? If so, contact David Carl at fisherman_dcarl@yahoo.com or by calling 570-325-4336. Anyone registering children can do so by using the PDF forms provided.

All the information you need is available with the PDFs. If you have any questions, be sure to contact David Carl to find out how you can say “I was at the Youth Day Event!”  You must fill out the registration form and mail it directly to David Carl at the address on the form.

Thank you for your support and help in providing outdoor education to our future leaders. See you there!

Committee Chairman,

David Carl
