Each day we will go on a different adventure to explore the wilderness along the Mississippi River. Activities will vary everyday but all are designed to foster a deep connection between participants and the natural world. We will go on hikes to look for birds, turtles and other animals, we will learn outdoor skills such as camping and boat safety and we will have have the opportunity to play in nature by going kayaking, biking and swimming. On the last day of the camp we will go out with experienced guides to an island on the Mississippi River to learn about these remote areas. Ages 7-12. 8 am-3pm daily
Current 9th-12th grade students are eligible to join us for 5 days as we paddle from Helena to Arkansas City. You will be part of the crew as you learn canoeing, camping, and navigation skills. Spots are available to residents of Phillips and Coahoma County for $100 per participant. All experience levels are welcome. All safety and camping equipment is provided.
