The five-day camp is staffed by the TV stars of Animal Planet’s “North Woods Law” and sponsored by the Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife. Campers, ranging from ages 8 to 12, will learn to paddle a canoe, handle a firearm, fish for brook trout, and use a bow and arrow, according to the article. They also will be taught why Maine’s fish, wildlife and natural areas need to be protected for future generations, and how they can help, the article states.
