Photos from the 2012 Wild and Wonderful Summer Youth Camp
Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center
July 8-10, 2012

What an unbelievable time the students enjoyed at this action packed environmental education camp. Upon arrival at the Wildlife Center, GCG Chairman Molly Kimler gave all the children and parents a warm welcome, introduced the other counselors and told everyone a bit of what to expect in the next three days ahead. Soon the parents were excused and the first fun outing began.

On our initial hike to gain our "Eagle Eyes," "Deer Ears," and "Coyote Nose," the children hunted for bird feathers. All types of feathers blended in the woods and trail so our campers had to use their "eagle eyes" to find them! It is a great teaching tool to spy things in the woods. This series of games, in between hikes, allowed the kids to gain all their animal senses. In addition to the fishing, hiking, and floral design activities that our campers enjoyed in previous years, this year they also practiced archery skills. Guest speakers bringing live animals (snakes and owls) are always a favorite—and music added to everyone's enjoyment!
