Volunteers enliven CACS day camp

Day Camp with the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies is in full swing. So far, we’ve had a lot of fun this summer and would like to give a warm thanks to everyone who has played a part. Many people in the community have graciously volunteered their time for our campers. Thanks to these individuals, we’ve been able to make some amazing memories. Below are the names of those superstars who have shared their passion and knowledge throughout these past weeks:

Steve Soitsman shared his fly tying expertise; Terry Thompson lent us fishing poles and taught us the art of fishing; Rob Lund taught us the importance of bees and gave us honey to take home; Rosana Moyer facilitated some fantastic art projects at the Girassol Learning Center; Paul Hannan volunteered his time during our Fishing Hole field trip; Dave Schroer gave us a tour of his beautiful garden and apple trees.

And hopefully many more to come.

If you or someone else you know would like to share their knowledge or lead an activity, let us know. We love having guest speakers and know the kids do, too.

Here are the remaining themes if you are interested: Wilderness Survival, Art and Nature, Wild Edibles, Garden Harvest, and Forest Fun.

You can reach the CACS Day Camp team at 406-529-6791.
