21 Youth Participate in Three Day Hunting Camp - P5
Twenty-one Red Lake youth, both boys and girls, took part in Red Lake Chemical Health's annual Hunting Camp which began after school on Wednesday, October 19, 2011.
The group traveled to the camp site near the Rock Dam area on the River Road where they would remain until Friday, October 21. During those three days the group would take part in camping activities, traditional teachings, gun safety, drug and alcohol prevention education, diabetes education, traditional foods preparation and cooking, and hunting and shining deer.
Their first night out the groups spotted deer, but did not bring one in. In the past they had harvested as many as two during one of the camps.
Red Lake Alcohol Rehabilitation Prevention Program and Old Ways for Today's Health Program, both under the Red Lake Chemical Health Program, sponsored the Hunting Camp, and the age range of the participants was from 4 to 16 years of age, with some participating in previous camps.
