A Few Words from our Director

“Thank you for stopping by to visit, you will see we have made some big changes.

“For those that are new to our programs, in 2004 we created a strategic planning committee made up of kids and their parents. The kids and parents met separately, volunteers that the kids and parents did not know, facilitated the day so all would speak freely. The kids were sprawled on the back porch, parents in the house, all brainstorming, organizing, and formulating their plans, as Brian and his son were cooking a whole goat outside for a feast. At the end of the day and well fed, the butcher paper was hung around the living room and Brian was invited in for them to explain their needs and wants. That weekend they designed and set goals to form their ideal camp. Each year since we return to that butcher paper and set our mid-range goals, took more training, got more certifications, and invested more money, and added more programs. At the end of each camp, the preteens and teens evaluated and discussed how we could make it better. It has taken 14 years since that first strategic planning committee, the youngest is now in college, yet Brian remembers who wanted what components, and most of the kids and the families that were a part of that first meeting still stays in touch with us. We are happy to say that every one of their goals has been met.

Please peruse the camp and school offerings now in the Idaho Panhandle. “

"Nature is a profoundly deep part of us. Our species has spent 99.9% of the past 200,000 years thriving in nature, building shelter, making clothing, making fire, finding drinking water, tracking and harvesting food. For our species survival we had to be deeply connected to nature."
