  1. YAY! Camp Wildcat looks like a great experience for my kids! My family LOVES hiking but we have never had the pleasure of hiking in 11,000 acres of wilderness! I can’t even imagine it… it must be gorgeous!

  2. I’ve always wanted to learn how to fly fish. This sounds like a great opportunity to do that along with other fun things!
