Outdoor skills offered include canoeing and water safety, fish and wildlife identification, archery, firearm safety, basic shooting, furbearers, furharvesting, fishing, preparing the catch, conservation and management, outdoor gear & survival, orienteering and compass reading and game care.

Participants can earn their hunter education certification.
