Boys and the outdoors in the summer sounds like a perfect combination.
And, the Yorkton branch of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation is providing just such an opportunity as it hosts in Outdoor Weekend in July.
Laura Uhryn said the weekend camp was launched in 2018, at the SWF’s outdoor range at York Lake. This year the camp will move to the Boy Scout location at Good Spirit Lake.
The new home for the camp will offer some new activities for the youth involved, said Uhyrn.
“Some of our members have boats and they’ve agreed to take the kids out on Good Spirit (Lake) fishing,” she said.
The participants will also be able to participate in archery.
“The Boy Scouts have a really nice range out there,” said Uhryn.
And, of course there will be a chance to sleep in a tent, and enjoy a campfire.
The camp is open to boys ages eight-to-12. The cost is $45, and Uhryn said parents do not have to be a member of the SWF for their boys to attend the camp.
