RAP Camp is designed to educate students about natural resource management by providing them an opportunity to take part in hands-on natural resource sessions, outdoor recreation activities and educational field trips. The camp allows kids to learn more about resources like fire ecology, wildlife, forestry, fisheries, archaeology, wetlands and botany and possible careers in those fields. It also engages students in many outdoor activities like hiking, birding, swimming and canoeing.
“Students attending the camp will have the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and make new friends, while participating in hands-on natural resource activities,” said Cheyne Rossbach, RAP Camp Coordinator. “A field trip to Crater Lake National Park, Cowboy poetry, tour of a fish hatchery, astronomy talk and tribal storytelling while sitting around the campfire are all part of the week’s experience!”
