Becoming an Outdoors-Family

Becoming an Outdoors-Family is a series of workshops designed to teach basic outdoor skills to help families enjoy the outdoors together. Experts provide hands-on instruction in skills related to fishing, camping, kayaking, archery, hunting and more.

A goal of Becoming an Outdoors-Family is to give families an opportunity to reconnect with each other and the great outdoors in a comfortable, safe and relaxed setting. Workshops are open to all types of families. Bring your grandchild, niece or nephew or big brother or sister and join us.

Instructors begin each class with the basics, providing hands-on experience and encourage all participants to ask questions and try the skill, focusing on fun. For more information, contact Christy Christiansen.
