MSU Extension and Alliance for Youth hosted a camp for sixth through eighth graders Aug. 8-11. The camp focused on making healthy choices concerning substance use.
Eighteen youth from Toole County attended the camp, along with six, teen counselors and six adult chaperons, including a deputy sheriff, high school teacher and a nurse. Along with classroom activities the group got to spend time swimming, canoeing, roasting s’mores and generally have a good time in the great outdoors. Other educational activities included a Montana Wildlife Presentation and a visit to U of M’s Flathead Lake Biological Stations Open House, complete with a visit with UM of mascot, Monte.
