Time to Apply for Free Wildlife Commission Summer Camps
3/26/2012 9:21 AM
Consider it Hunger Games training, without the peril.
The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will offer two free weeklong day camps for teens, ages 13-17, this summer at its Centennial Campus Center for Wildlife Education in Raleigh.
The first camp, “Becoming an Outdoors Diva,” is for girls only, on June 25-29, and modeled on the popular Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program for adult women.
The second, “Camp-Outdoor-Rageous,” is for boys and girls, on July 9-13.
Both camps build self-reliance while teaching outdoor skills and conservation. Activities take place on the Centennial Campus of N.C. State University and Lake Raleigh. The daily camp times are 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Teens must apply in advance. Admission is based on teens’ responses to a wildlife questionnaire.
Camp participants will learn to:
· use a bow and arrow,
· survive in the woods by building a shelter,
· use a map and compass,
· start a fire without matches or lighter, and
· catch and cook a fish.
For more information about these free day camps, contact Ann May at 919-707-0207 or email@example.com

Summer Camps for Teens
Thanks a lot for giving information about Wildlife Summer Camps. I am really happy to see these summer camps at free of cost. My son is also willing to join this summer camp. Now I will ask about this camps to him and also to other parents of his classmates.
