Yes that means you! Ever wanted to help introduce a kid to the great outdoors? Then consider volunteering a day or two at the Roswell Outdoor Academy Camp June 22-26! We need passionate and qualified adults to help teach archery, fishing, game calling, flyfishing, air rifle, outdoor cooking, hunter safety and more. The camp runs from 9:00 - 1:00 pm at Garrard's Landing in Roswell, Georgia. Give an hour, give a day, give a week - all help is appreciated. For more info visit www.outdoorkids.org and then e-mail me if interested in helping Get That Kid Outdoors!

I am also looking for some paid counselors for the week. High school kids or college kids that can help serve as camp coordinators. The gig runs 8:30 am to 12:30 pm June 22-26 - a total of 25 hours and the pay is $250 cash. Experience in hunting and fishing a plus but not at all required. If you know a responsible teenager looking for a fun week's work put them in touch with me. Thank you!

Spring is here! A great time to introduce kids to the great outdoors.  Fishing, turkey hunting and shed hunting are just a few ideas. Just remember - be liberal with the bug spray.  A tick bite can turn a good memory into bad.  Douse your kid well with a bug spray with DEET, especially anywhere that the clothes have gaps - the waist, ankles, wrists and neck.  Now Get That Kit Outdoors!
